There is anxiety in the camp of ex-President Ibrahim Babangida as the ex-military leader and political associates consider if he should join the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) or not.

There were indications that Babangida is under pressure to distance himself from the former President Olusegun Obasanjo movement and rather limit his contributions to his thoughts on the way forward for the nation. Findings revealed that Babangida met with some of his associates during the week to discuss the likelihood of joining CNM or abstaining from the group.

Babangida’s controversial advice to incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari allegedly caused a sharp disagreement in his family and political camp, leading to prompt release of a second one attributed to his “friends.”
