‘I see a new Nigeria in the hands of God"-Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo today a the inauguration of Coalition for Nigeria Movement, expressed optimism that himself and Nigerians "will all be witnesses of the emergence of a new Nigeria.’

Obasanjo who is the major promoter of the movement earlier today registered as member of the group. He however said he would cease to be a member whenever it chooses to transform into a political party.

“I am happy to be a member of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement which is a movement for good governance.
“This is the commencement for 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.’’

Recall that Obasanjo, last week in a strong press statement had dismissed APC and PDP saying both parties were incapable of transforming Nigeria.
