In a statement issued by NCF on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, the group said its aim is to provide a credible alternative political class and leadership for Nigeria as a result of the “failures” of past leaders of the country.

The movement highlighted its objectives to include mobilising Nigerians for a popular mass action towards political and constitutional reforms that would benefit the country and its citizens.
