In his remarks, Oyinlola said: “CNM is a necessity at this point in time when political parties and aspirants are warming up for political positions.

 

“CNM wouldn’t have come at a better time than now,  as the country needs a formidable force that can enlighten, educate, citizenry while ensuring public and political office holders discharge their duties as deemed necessary.

 

“When you look at how structural inadequacies have proved our country of greatness, you will understand why some of us have decided tomake this movent stand to help the vast majority of our people to take their destiny in their hands.

 

“Our constitution avails all Nigerians the responsibility of their fundamental human rifgt and the right to vote politically.  This movement therefore is a deep appreciation of the fallow state of our nation that refuse to use the fruits of democracy to recreate Nigeria that truly serve all. Irrespective of religious,  tribe or socioeconomic status.”
