The Nigeria Intervention Movement, NIM, yesterday, commended former President Olusegun Obasanjo, for urging Nigerians to join forces to bring about a Coalition for Nigeria that will rescue the country from the impunity of the two dominant parties in Nigeria; PDP and APC. Obasanjo.
It will be recalled that Obasanjo earlier yesterday charged Nigerians to henceforth seek their political and economic salvation in the direction of a political third force outside the two dominant parties in Nigeria; PDP and APC, whom he said have both grossly disappointed the people of Nigeria.
In a statement by Deputy Director General, Media, Communications, Publicity, Mallam Naseer Kura, the NIM said: “NIM affirms that Obasanjo’s historic clarion call to the Nation at its formative stage has profoundly validated the initiative of NIM’s Conveners to facilitate an all inclusive, non partisan pan Nigerian political third force to rescue the country from the impunity and lack lustre performance of traditional political elites in the PDP and APC among others.
“While endorsing and applauding Obasanjo’s statement on the way forward for Nigeria in the march towards the 2019, NIM wishes to clearly state its resolve to embrace the strategic counsel contained in the Elder-statesman treaties on how the emergent Movement can rally and work with other Movements in building a major Coalition for Nigeria to save Nigerians from an inept political leadership
