Obviously, the don isn’t done quite yet with politics.
Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has been reported to have quit the Coalition for Nigeria Movement which has now adopted a political party called African Democratic Congress, in order to realise its dream of a new Nigeria.
The political commentator had hinted on Thursday evening when he addressed the press at his presidential library home in Abeokuta that the Coalition for Nigeria Movement has adopted the ADC in order to achieve its aim.
In a speech he titled “My treatise for future of democracy and development in Nigeria”, Obasanjo had a number of announcements to make.
This is how he put it:
“Let me start by welcoming and commending the emergence of a renewed and reinvigorated African Democratic Congress, ADC, as a political party.
“Since the inception of Coalition for Nigeria Movement, CNM, many of the sixty-eight registered political parties had contacted and consulted with the Movement on coming together and working together.
“The leadership of the Movement, after detailed examination, wide consultation and bearing in mind the orientation, policies and direction of the Movement, have agreed to adopt ADC as its platform to work with others for bringing about desirable change in the Nigeria polity and governance.”
