A former presidential spokesperson , Dr. Doyin Okupe, has said the Coalition for Nigeria Movement will present a candidate who will defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election .

He , however , said the group was not formed to either attack the Buhari government or to discredit the APC .
Okupe , in a statement on Saturday, said since it would be difficult to defeat an incumbent , the CNM was created as a broad platform with a view to presenting a candidate who would contest against Buhari with the hope of defeating the incumbent President .
Okupe stated , “It is absolutely impossible to oppose the incumbent especially a towering figure like President Muhammadu Buhari and hope to defeat him .
“To defeat Buhari will require an exact repeat of what Bola Tinubu and others were able to do with the APC in 2014 by creating a broad platform encompassing the political majority in the country .
“This strong coalition will present a candidate to contest against Buhari with the hope of being able to win.”
The former aide to Obasanjo explained that the CNM believed that the APC government , led by Buhari , had not done well since it took over power about three years ago .

“We recognise the fact that the APC has not done well. We are convinced that the decision by Buhari to contest again will not augur well for the country . To allow the APC to win means Buhari will continue and that would not be in the interest of Nigerians , ” he added .
