Although Obasanjo was conspicuously absent at the launch on Wednesday, a former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and a former governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke, were the two dignitaries at the inauguration.

He said: "We are not a political party - at least for now but if and when, through the arrangements and decisions of the leaders that you are going to put in place, we come to the agreement that we metamorphose into a political party, it must be a collective decision".

Vanguard quoted the group as saying, "We are by this medium appealing to you and fellow Nigerians to give the Buhari administration 10 calendar months to make amends".

Obasanjo hinted about the coalition in the letter he wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari last week.

The ABC and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet reached an agreement on the return of the documents. The classifications include "top secret", "sensitive", " Australian eyes only" and "cabinet-in-confidence".

"To say that we are legitimising Obasanjo's legacies is a beat off the mark".

"We need a Coalition for Nigeria, CN, Such a Movement at this juncture needs not be a political party but one to which all well-meaning Nigerians can belong". There is nothing to be gained in burning our country in the name of seeking improvement; the reforms we all desire are achievable through persuasion, consensus building and collaboration without resorting to inflammatory acts and utterances as we have seen with some people.

Duke said: "This endeavor is timely because there were several movements in the offing and this coalition has to bring them all together if we want to make things work". But we also aware that a new generation is at the vanguard of taking over and why our own generation is stepping back as Governor Oyinlola said.
