Below are some of the questions people ask most often about the Coalition, how to get connected and next steps.
CNM is the Coalition for Nigeria Movement and it is a non-partisan progressive grassroots network, fuelled by millions of Nigerian’s that want to move Nigeria Forward through the development of Strong Institutions and credible leadership.
It is a movement for every Nigerian aged 18 and above irrespective of tribe or religion, who seeks to end the bad governance and incompetent leadership that the governing political class has delivered over the years.
CNM does two things: mobilize and organize. We mobilize every Nigerian particularly from the grassroots to come on board and push for a better Nigeria by addressing key issues affecting Nigeria Today; and we organize at all levels of the society, engaging, training, and empowering a new generation of leaders who are credible and capable.
We are working for a Country where every Nigerian, no matter who they are, where they live or how much money they make or do not make, has the ability to live a secure, safe and healthy life with a good job and favourable opportunities and most importantly the ability and freedom to participate in a representative Government.
To achieve our objectives, we are mobilizing Nigerians to become politically active and participate in the process of embedding a new political class built on character, competence & capability and more
importantly initiate a lasting process where citizens hold public office holders accountable at all levels of government.
CNM’s focus is to mobilize all Nigerians to come together and galvanize the latent power in our role as Citizens and the fiduciary duty which our leaders owe to us as citizens.
At the core of our approach is civic education and presently we are encouraging all Nigerians to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and more importantly use it to vote incredible leaders and vote out inefficient leaders.
We understand that a very significant number of Nigerians are exhausted with bad leadership and the massive leadership deficit in Nigeria. We seek to put an end to this citizen frustration by creating an
all-encompassing platform where we all can collectively say ‘Enough is enough’ and actively close this endemic leadership deficit.
No, CNM is not a political party. We are a non-political organisation with no tribal or ethnic coloration or sentiments. Our purpose is public policy advocacy and development—in particular, the identification and
advancement of goals for progressive transformation at all levels of government—and the training and empowering of the next generation of leaders.
We believe that Nigeria has a vast array of credible leaders to participate in politics and our focus is to dismantle the institutional barriers, structures and systematic failures that disenfranchise credible
candidates and subsequently promote a system that encourages the right people for the right leadership positions at all levels of government.
We will mobilize citizens, at all levels, train equip and encourage credible candidates to stand for elections and mobilize the citizenry to elect the right candidates.
Membership of the CN Movement is open to all Nigerians, above 18 years of age.
