Coalition For Nigeria Launches in Abuja, Seeks For Membership
A political movement, Coalition for Nigeria is launching today at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, FCT.
Two former PDP governors, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, a former governor of Osun State and Donald Duke, also a former governor of Cross River State were in attendance.
In his statement, Mr. Olagunsoye Oyinlola said the movement is not yet a political party and that the movement would transform into a party when the members come to an agreement.
He acknowledged that for the movement to make electoral impact, its proponents would need to abide by the Constitution and register as a political party.
“To say that we are legitimising OBJ’s legacy is a bit off the mark,” he said.
Mr. Oyinlola said the leaders of the movement are not necessarily eyeing political offices to benefit themselves, saying their aim is to help leave a better tomorrow for the younger generation.
The leaders of the movement said Nigerians have been through a lot in the hands of the political elite and canvassed a fresh alternative for citizens by 2019.
