AFTER THE ‘LETTER BOMB’, OBASANJO, SEVEN GOVERNORS TO FORM NEW PARTY

 

A political movement promoted by former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, Coalition for Nigeria is due to launch January, 31.

The movement is currently being coordinated by a former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, an associate of the former president, is expected to transform into the much touted third force

In order to manage likely eruptions over office sharing, the movement has opted to appoint what it calls “spokesperson” at all levels.

Oyinlola is now acting as the national spokesman; such roles would be appointed at all levels, including state, senatorial zones, down to ward level,” said a source

The movement is expected to be unveiled at an undisclosed location in Abuja.
The former president had, on Tuesday, issued a public comdemnation of  the Buhari administration, advising the president to take a “deserved rest” and urging Nigerians to vote him out should Mr. Buhari insist on running.

He  advocated the establishment of a movement he called Coalition for Nigeria, to offer a new leadership for the country, since, according to him,  the two major parties; the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are unfit to provide leadership.
