"Coalition for Nigeria is a pressure group not third force" says Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has cleared the misconceptions surrounding the newly formed Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM), referring to it as a pressure group for good governance.
Chief Olusegun obtained the membership card of the movement today in his home state Ogun.
He urged all well-meaning citizens to join the movement for building a better Nigeria.

The former president who was accompanied by former governor of Osun State and acting National Coordinator of CNM, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, former Cross River State Governor, Donald Duke, former Minister of State for Defence, Mrs Modupe Adelaja, former military governor of Ondo State, Chief Ekundayo Balogun, and two-time gubernatorial candidate in Ogun State, Prince Gboyega Isiaka, expressed happiness in being a member of the new movement.

He emphasized that the movement is not a third force, but a pressure group for all Nigerians irrespective of political interest or affiliations.

“Some people have started worrying about the problem of personalities, in which some, in other efforts, allocate positions to themselves. This movement is not about personality or personalities; but about platform and system.

“Our system so far has not given us what we must have. For the first time, we are building a platform from bottom-up. The movement’s base is the grassroots and the people – all the people.

“It is necessary to make it clear that this 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.”
