So many pipo come surprise wen on Thursday, Obasanjo make announcement say im Movement - Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) don join di African Democratic Congress party (ADC).
Wetin all dis Movement dem want?
Olisa Agbakoba wey be Senior Advocate of Nigeria and co-chairman of Nigeria Intervention Movement- 3rd Force, tell BBC Pidgin say wetin dey happen be say all di Movement dem go work togeda as one big coalition wit Obasanjo and im ADC and oda parties dem wey go come out, to get one voice for di 2019 election.
"Many of us dey concerned wen we see wetin dey happen wit democracy, rule of law and corruption so we come decide to form Movements like Obasanjo CNM, my own NIM, Oby Ezekwesili Red Card but we discover say we fit get challenge."
"We get meeting two weeks ago with di former president Obasanjo and we agree say we no go win election wit Movements but na party dey win so we agree to carry our Movement dem join party."
"Wetin happen two days ago na say Obasanjo Movement CNM don adopt ADC and we too dey in di process of concluding which party we sef go adopt," na so Agbakoba tok.
Wetin happen for 2015 fit happen for 2019?
For 2015, di ruling party di All Progressive Congress join bodi wit oda parties dem and na dis strategy dem use take win election.
E fit work again dis time?
Tori pesin wey sabi politics well-well, Kayode Ladeinde tell BBC Pidgin say e fit no easy like dat.
"Even though former presidents dem get power e fit dey difficult to collect power from APC without di support of di main opposition PDP and as Obasanjo continue to dey diss PDP e fit backfire and ADC no go fit make impact."
"PDP get 11 governors, 30 to 35 representatives for di federal Legislature so dia number na asset for any political party."
"Again, wetin dey happen na coalition and no be merger, APC na merger between parties wey dey exist like ACN, ANPP, CP, faction of APGA and NPDP but for di case of ADC now di time to fit merge no dey realistic before die 2019 election." Ladeinde tok.
