Our Plan Is To Stop The Trouble Ahead – CN
Former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and his counterpart from Cross River State, Donald Duke inaugurated the Coalition for Nigeria Movement on Wednesday.
The movement, which was proposed by the former President Olusegun Obasanjo at a news conference last week had about 300 participants in attendance at the inauguration in Abuja.
Speaking at the occasion, Oyinlola stated that the movement became necessary to stop impending doom in Nigeria, adding, “Everybody knows that there is trouble ahead and we have to stop it now.”
He explained that the movement must quickly arrest this because the current government has no thought-out programme to address the myriads of problems in the country.
According to him, there is rising unemployment, insecurity and absence of credible socio-economic programmes in the country.
Recalled that Obasanjo had asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to contest for the second term, the movement, CN, stated that the present government could not take the country to the desired prosperous destination.
The highlight of the inauguration was the distribution of Tee-shirts and caps with the inscription of CN, as the convener called on all Nigerians to join them in taking the country out of the wood.
The coalition, CN, said its membership was open to “all Nigerians of 18 years old and above.”
“It is in our plan of action to democratically build and enthrone a new set of youthful and knowledgeable leadership for this country. We shall have offices and elected officers in every ward, Local Government Areas, states and in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
