Obasanjo was not present at the launch, but two former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors, Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Donald Duke, were in attendance.

CN described the Obasanjo-led Coalition Movement as a group of failed politicians and those that had made enormous contributions towards wrecking Nigeria with a sprinkling of youths that have anger issues.

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".

Oyinlola was also the former Secretary of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), before defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former President who addressed hundreds of prospective members who had thronged the venue of the event since 9am said the statement issued against the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari was out of concern for the nation.

"Our Coalition is made up of Nigerians that yearn for a better country with the firm belief that the dismantling of the infrastructure for corruption is a necessary first step that ensure that we can then build the country on a solid foundation that provides level playing field to all citizens".

Also speaking, the National Women Leader of the Democratic People's Party (DPP), Mrs Victoria Bolanle Oviaso Jie said it is now a movement but would metamorphose into a political party.

"We need a Coalition for Nigeria, CN".

There are unconfirmed reports that many within President Buhari's government, who had gotten exhausted of his administration's style, would also throw in the towel in the coming days to join forces with the coalition.

"To say that we are legitimising Obasanjo's legacies is a beat off the mark. Our nation needs to be shored up by we the people", Edogiawerie said on Tuesday during an interview on Channels Television's breakfast programme Sunrise Daily. Are there no leaders watching and wearing off in this country? Time is not on our side and if we are going to effect the aims of the coalition them we must run fast.

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. We must all come together to change the narrative".
