On his part, the convener of the coalition group, Isa El-Buba said that it was time to save the country as the election is a fight to the finish.
“Nigeria cannot afford to be under Tinubu or Atiku’s presidency because, for the past 62 years, we have not enjoyed good leadership. Nigeria is ready to put a stop to that.
“No amount of their money (Tinubu and Atiku) will help them this time around because Nigerians are wiser.
"Their mountains will crumble and the seed of Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate will overtake them.
“It’s time to save Nigeria, it’s a fight to finish. We must be brave to brace the forces.
“We must get the 40 million votes target to push the Labour Party presidential candidate into victory during the forthcoming election” El-Buba emphasised.
