The political movement proposed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his letter to President Buhari, was launched at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, today. Although Obasanjo was absent at the launch, former governors Donald Duke and Olagunsoye Oyinyola, were present at the launch. Duke has since indicated his interest to run for president.

Speaking to newsmen, Oyinlola, who is a former governor of Osun State, said the movement is not yet a political party.

''If and when we come to an agreement that we must metaphose into a political party, then we will. We’re not a political party, at least, for now,” he said.

Obasanjo in his letter to President Buhari said Nigeria is dire need of a new political group.  The former president opined that neither the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) nor the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could give Nigeria the leadership it deserves.
