(By Chris K. Amadi) -There appears to be a discordant tune in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Nigeria as some chieftains of the party have openly declared their support for the radical initiative of Nigeria’s former president, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo to stop the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari over appalling performance in office.
Speaking at the launching of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement in Abuja on Wednesday, Chief Olagunsoye Oyinlola, former governor of Osun State and chieftain of the APC said the initiative was in response to Obasanjo’s call for the emergence of a Coalition to help rescue the country from bad administration.
Hear him: “There is no one who can fault the issues raised in Obasanjo’s letter. Forget the messenger, let’s discuss the message.
“What he has done is to stir us from our slumber to the reality of what is happening in Nigeria to take charge and take action.
“I think we should give some kudos to him for being able to address Nigerians on the ills of the society which requires attention.’’
Responding to a question, the APC chief hinted that there is the possibility of the movement metamorphosing into a political party if there is an agreement among stakeholders but that, in the interim, the coalition is not yet a political party.
Also speaking at the occasion, Buba Galadima said that Nigerians remain committed to change now more than ever and that performance will be the criteria for voting any one into office in 2019.
