‘The Obidient Movement is a diverse and inclusive collective that transcends traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations’

By Valentine Amanze

The Obidient Movement is beyond a political party and cannot be forced into one, says the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general elections and the principal mentor of the movement in Nigeria, Mr. Peter Obi.

Obi, apparently was reacting to the creation of a directorate for the Obidient Movement by a political party in Nigeria, recently.

Obi pointed out that membership of the Obidient Movement cut across a political party, sex, tribe, religion or geopolitical area.

 “The driving force of the body is rescuing and building a new Nigeria that is Possible,” Obi said.

Obi, who made the explanation on his X handle, @PeterObi, on Wednesay, further said that the size, scope and nature of the Obidient Movement, was beyond the directorate of any party.

His words:  “I like to categorically state that the Obidient Movement is not a directorate in any particular political party.

“Any individual or individuals claiming to be leaders of this non-existent directorate are simply not members of the broader Obidient Movement.

“There may be a youth mobilization directorate in political parties but the Obidient Movement is far beyond a particular political party.

“The Obidient Movement is a diverse and inclusive collective that transcends traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations.

“It is not domiciled within any particular party or headquartered in any particular part of the country. Its membership spans across Africa and the globe, comprising individuals from various backgrounds, including rural communities, and public, private, and corporate entities, united by a shared vision for a New and better Nigeria. Guided by the principles of adaptive and transformative change, progress, discipline, and democratic values, the Obidient Movement advocates for fairness, equity, inclusivity, and justice.

“It is committed to a strictly accountable and responsible code of government. Our members are committed to contributing to the realization of a better future for Nigeria through the New Nigeria project, anchored on loyalty, integrity, and democratic values.

“The Obidient Movement seeks to foster positive change through a commitment to integrity, honesty, and accountability, rejecting deceitful behaviours.

“We serve as a beacon of hope for a reimagined Nigeria, where leadership is grounded in character, capacity, competence, compassion and the well-being of all citizens.”
