The national leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), one of the four opposition political parties that jointly floated a new party, retired General Muhammadu Buhari said the opposition coalition has commenced mobilization of Nigerians towards the 2015 general elections.
The former Head of State, who spoke at the Launching of a book, titled 'Accidental Public Servant', written by the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai, said what the country needs at the moment is a strong and determined leader to deliver it from looming trouble.
Referring to what the United States President, Barack Obama said on the need for strong institutions in developing nations, Buhari said the opposite is the case for Nigeria because, the country required a strong leader with discipline and determination to restore the institutions back to its proper place.
Buhari also advised those fanning embers of disunity to desist from it, adding that "the country is too interwind to divide".
