The Obasanjo coalition termed the “3rd Force” have merged with an existing party the ADC, African Democratic Congress.
One of the leaders of the Coalition, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola in a press conference today in Abuja, declared that” the Coalition for New Nigeria Movement, CNM, no longer exists as it has now merged with the African Democratic Movement.”
This move comes a day after Oyinlola as a member of what they called “nPDP Block” co-signed a 7 days warning letter to the APC listing grievances and threatening to exit the party.
This move also seen as yet sign that a potential merger by the likes of SDP, ADC with the PDP is on the pipelines as 2019 elections gets ever closer.
A source told us that Obasanjo himself approved this move and he is due to hold a world press conference later in the day upon his return from a journey abroad.
