“It is absolutely impossible to oppose the incumbent especially a towering figure like President Muhammadu Buhari and hope to defeat him.

Doyin Okupe former presidential spokesperson, said in an while addressing 2019 election,  that Obasanjo's owned movement, The Coalition for Nigeria Movement would present a competent candidate who would defeat Buhari come 2019.

He said the purpose of the group is not to be threat to APC or the Incumbent power.
However Okupe made it clear that since it wouldn't be easy to overcome an incumbent. Therefore there is a need to create the CNM to present a possible candidate to stand Buhari.
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.”
Ex president's aide said the CNM came in due to the fact that the APC couldn't deliver good governance to the entire populace, the three years of the APC's administration has been a yoke in the neck of Nigerians.
“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.
