Obasanjo’s Coalition Of Nigeria To Be Unveiled Today In Abuja
All seems set for the unveiling today of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CN).
Obasanjo broke the news of the coalition in a long “special statement” in which he lashed the President Muhammau Buhari administration.
Of the 36 governors, 10 and some senators are said to have indicated interest in being part of the CN.
Seven governors are believed to be of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and three Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) members.
Others who are said to be part of the formation of CN are a former National Security Adviser, some ex-governors, such as Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, former Cross River State Governor Donald Duke and former Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido and retired Generals, among others.
The launch of CN Movement will hold at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre.
Although the programme for the launch was already in the public domain yesterday, the list of attendees was kept under wraps.
The programme, however, stated the mission of the CN as follows:
“The Coalition for Nigeria Movement is a movement that seeks to promote and ensure socio-economic development, improvement, growth, social justice, egalitarianism, cohesion, cooperation, equity, equality of opportunity, transparency, societal order, rule of law, human security and human rights leading to National Unity, good governance and general well-being and the welfare of all citizens and inhabitants of Nigeria.”
