Former President Olusegun Obasanjo will flag off the registration of the Coalition for Nigeria in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Thursday.

Kehinde Akinyemi, spokesman of the ex-president, disclosed this to TheCable on Wednesday.

According to Akinyemi the registration would take place at the Ogun state secretariat of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Abeokuta.

Obasanjo did not attend the launch of the coalition at the Musa Yar’Adua centre in Abuja on Wednesday.

The launch took place one week after Obasanjo recommended it as the solution to the leadership crisis in Nigeria.

In a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, Obasanjo had said neither the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) nor the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could give Nigeria the leadership it deserves.

“We need a Coalition for Nigeria, CN. Coalition to salvage and redeem our country. You can count me with such a movement,” the elder statesman had said.

“Last time, we asked, prayed and worked for change and God granted our request. This time, we must ask, pray and work for change with unity, security and progress. And God will again grant us. Of course, nothing should stop such a Movement from satisfying conditions for fielding candidates for elections.

“Coalition for Nigeria must have its headquarters in Abuja.”

At the unveiling ceremony, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, former governor of Osun state, who is the co-ordinator, said the movement has to hit the ground running.
