Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Saturday, called on members of the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) to be battle ready to take over power in 2019, stressing that they should propagate the need for all qualified electorates to obtain their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) ahead of the poll.
Mr Obasanjo made this known at the inauguration of the Oyo State Chapter of the movement, held at Trans Amusement Park, Ibadan, stressing that the members should have it in their hearts that in the struggle to redeem Nigeria, they would be threatened.
“Everybody must be determined to rescue Nigeria, it may not be easy, however, the God who performed wonders sometime ago, will again perform wonders. We have (seen), in this country, where five political parties endorsed a single person and God was laughing and knew what he would do. If we are leaving everything to God, we must do our best. Get your PVCs and encourage others.”
He emphasised that in view of this, they should be focused and determined, stating that only cowards run away from the war front. He however, assured them that as the founder of the movement, he would not neglect them when he is needed.
