Obasanjo: I’ll Denounce My Membership Of Coalition For Nigeria If…

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who officially registered as a member of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) on Thursday, has given conditions for his continued membership of the political movement.

Speaking at the Secretariat of Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Obasanjo said: “I will cease to be a member” of the CNM the moment it transforms into a political party or becomes partisan.

The former president completed his CNM membership form and handed it over to National Coordinator of the political movement, Col. Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Rtd.).¸

He said, “I am happy to be a member of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement which is a movement for good governance.

“This is the commencement of our popular and grassroots association.

“The membership will be free to collectively decide on whether it will become a political party and if it decides to transform itself and go into partisan politics, I will cease to be a member.

“It is necessary to make it clear that this new movement does not regard itself as a third force.

“It sees itself as a popular movement that can accommodate all Nigerians irrespective of their political interest or affiliations and will propel Nigeria forward.

“‘I see a new Nigeria in the hands of God and we will all be witnesses of the emergence of a new Nigeria,’’ said Obasanjo.

The Coalition for Nigeria Movement, which launched on Wednesday, has earned recognition from civil activists and politicians from both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

    well, we see this step took by Obasanjo as a trap for President Muhammadu Buhari, just because Buhari do not allow him to control his government. May be Obasanjo forget that, God is the most powerful over anybody. If Obasanjo try to organize a team to disturb Buhari, he will failed woefully .

    Let Obasanjo believes power belongs to God,he should remember he is not in position to detate for millions of Nigeria, were is Obasanjo in 18yrs ago ,when Abache is in power ?, or he has forget that some Nigerians take him and placed him to be president for eight good years, whom is even glamour for more terms, is that not neophytes , the issues of operation feed the nations Later turn to Obasanjo farms, what about d Mtn tariff issues, u went back to seat of power and u want to acquire heaven and earth. I believe it mission is to disturb BUHARI for second time so that it will not bounce on what u acquired from this country. Is time for ur secret to be revealed to all Nigerians. If u like write 100 letters that will not discourage Nigerians to vote for Buhari’s return to power. Kudos to BUHARI, God continued to guild and save u from the enemies of these country.
