Obasanjo’s Coalition Movement takes off in Abuja
President Olusegun Obasanjo’s proposed Coalition Movement has been launched in Abuja.
The former President had last week written a damning letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The movement was launched today at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. The former president has in a lengthy and critical public statement on Tuesday, January 23 suggested the formation of the movement and advised Buhari against seeking a second term in office.
Obasanjo was however not present at the launch, but two former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors, Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Donald Duke, were in attendance.
The former President had said in his public letter that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were incapable of repositioning Nigeria. The political parties have lost the confidence of the electorate.
