Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday said he would cease from being a member anytime the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) decides to join partisan politics.

Obasanjo disclosed this when he officially registered as a member of the CNM at the NUJ secretariat, Abeokuta.

“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,’’ he said.

Obasanjo completed the membership form of the Movement and handed it over to former Governor of Osun State, Col. Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Rtd.), who is the National Coordinator of the group.

The CNM, which was officially launched in Abuja on Wednesday, was the brainchild of Obasanjo, which he had proffered as a platform to mobilise Nigerians for unity in his recent advice to President Muhammadu Buhari.

“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,’’ he said.

Obasanjo, who composed a new song for the nation, said ‘I see a new Nigeria in the hands of God and we will all be witnesses of the emergence of a new Nigeria.’’
