The former governor of Kano State, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, and other prominent Nigerians has unveiled a new national movement to ” save Nigeria from the hands of APC and PDP .”

The group named The National Movement (TNM) was officially introduced to the public today at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in Abuja’s Ladi Kwali Hall on Tuesday.

The group said it was set to battle for the soul of Nigeria from the hands of APC and the Peoples Democratic Party.

The Convener of the event, Kwankwaso said TNM is a collective desire to rescue the country.

“For too long, Nigerians have been waiting for this day. For too long friends of Nigerians abroad have been waiting for this day and the time is today and now.

“Today, all Nigerians cut across all social, religious and regions have gathered. It is our collective resolve to rescue our nation from this difficult situation.”

Kwankwaso said he met with his friends during the COVID-19 lockdown and resolved that a step must be taken to rescue Nigeria.

“We resolved that there must be a Nigeria first before politics. While some of us will want to contest, we must work together to rescue the country.

“The National Movement has members in every local government area and outside the country,” Kwankwaso said.

However, a source disclosed that TNM would later transform into a major political party.

The movement is said to have the support of prominent politicians in the country, many of whom are former governors.
