Ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo has urged members of his Coalition of Nigeria movement to gear up and collect their PVCs with the sole aim of removing President Muhammadu Buhari from power in 2019.
The former President made this statement in Ibadan on Saturday at the inauguration of the Itinerary State Chapter of the movement attended by former governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola, former deputy governor of Oyo State, Taofeek Arapaja, controversial businessman, Oyewole Fasawe and among others. He said;
“Everybody must be determined to rescue Nigeria, it may not be easy, however, the God who performed wonders some time 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” Obasanjo told members of the Coalition.
He also asked them to be prepared to confront any challenge that may come their way.
“Take note, they will threaten you, but don’t be discouraged. It is only cowards who run away from the war front, the former president said while assuring them of his continuous support.
Having gone this far, I won’t leave you dry. Get your PVC. I don’t think anybody can threaten me again. Remember I have been to prison for an offence I do not know anything about.”
He also reminded members that the movement was organized to save the soul of Nigeria from its final death.
Olayiwola Olakojo, the state coordinator of the movement, praised Obasanjo for his comments and described him as a ‘Messiah’.
“He is indeed our Messiah. Kindly reflect on all his involvements in all governments, globally and nationally. He is indeed the father of modern Nigeria. As the foremost statesman, he has always wanted the best for Nigeria. His comments and observations on the past and present administration are just for the progress and development of our country”.
