Nigeria Intervention Movement, NiM, a Rainbow Coalition of new breed political forces and movements; mobilising towards paradim shift within Nigeria’s political configuration, wishes to announce that its grand national summit scheduled to hold on Wednesday in Abuja received a major boost at the weekend from Eminent national leaders and front line political activists invited to intervene in the political future of Nigeria at the summit
 
According to a statement issued by Mallam Naseer Kura on behalf of the Summit Organising Committee on Sunday in Abuja, the historic event has received nod from Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, eminent Jurist, Prof Ben Nwabueze SAN, Air Commodore Dan Suleiman (Rtd), Colonel Abubarkar  Umar Dangiwa, Mr Donald Duke, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, Senator Shehu Sanni, Dr Olu Agunloye among other senior citizens and leaders of thought across the six geo political zones, who have agreed to address the country at the Grand National Summit
 
According to Kura, the Summit Spokesperson, key among those who are still being expected to send in their address to the summit Secretariat on Sunday are Mallam Adamu Ciroma, Gen TY Danjuma, Dr Paul Unongo, Chief Edwin Clark, among other leaders of thought already invited to address the Nation at the historic national convergence, which is designed to bring together both old and new generation of political leaders in Nigeria, for the first time, towards finding an appropriate political road map for Nigeria’s troubled democracy, while facilitating a grand political coalition of fresh breed political leaders ahead of the 2019 elections
 
For the avoidance of doubt, these elders and leaders, given their experience in the political affairs of the country as well as their past roles in the life of the country, at one point or the other, have been invited to address Nigeria’s past, in order to provide a veritable political compass for emerging fresh breed leaders in navigating the future for the country
 
The grand summit, which promises to be a very fertile ground to breed national understanding and reconciliation is also conceived as a serious intervention to re set the future of Nigeria’s constitutional democracy which presently skewed against the majority of Nigerians, as many young emerging political leaders will be provided the rare opportunity to interact and share their aspirations with the invited political veterans at the national confab
 
Some of the burning issues rocking the political fabric of country to be agreed and sorted, once and for all, at the summit, holding at the Nicon Luxury Hotel, Abuja is; Inclusive democratic review of the Nigerian Constitution, Referendum, equitable political structure for Nigeria, popular democratic system of government suitable for the country, Sovereignty of the Nigerian Peoples, Peoples’ Right to self determination, 2019 general elections and the options for masses, among others 
 
The event which will be co chaired by Dr Olisa Agbakoba SAN & Dr Abduljalil Tafawa Balewa is expected to come out with Communique on the future of Nigeria with the theme: birthing an equitable and prosperous democratic Nigeria at a special interactive session with media Editors on Thursday. Some of the young aspiring leaders who are invited to the Summit include, political aspirants like, Mr Fela Durotoye, Mr Kingsley Moghalu, Dr Chris Nwaokobia, Mallam Adamu Dauda, Mr Jaye Gaskia, Mr Omoyele Sowore, Ms Toyosi Akerele, Mr Abayomi Mighty, among other 35 young leaders aspiring to lead the country in various capacities.
