Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election, issued a statement via his X handle, addressing the nature and scope of the Obidient Movement.

“I would like to categorically state that the Obidient Movement is not the directorate of any particular political party,” Obi declared. “Any individual or individuals claiming to be leaders of this non-existent directorate are simply not members of the broader Obidient Movement.”

Obi emphasized that while political parties may have youth mobilization directorates, the Obidient Movement extends far beyond the confines of any single party. “The Obidient Movement is a diverse and inclusive collective that transcends traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations,” he explained. “It is not domiciled within any particular party or headquartered in any specific part of the country.”

The Obidient Movement, according to Obi, includes members from across Africa and the globe, encompassing individuals from various backgrounds, including rural communities, and public, private, and corporate sectors. United by a shared vision for a better Nigeria, the movement champions principles of adaptive and transformative change, progress, discipline, and democratic values.

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

Obi highlighted that the movement aims to foster positive change through integrity, honesty, and accountability, firmly rejecting deceitful behaviors. “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,” he said.

This statement comes in response to the Labour Party’s announcement of the appointment of an “OBIDIENT Directorate” to integrate millions of youths and the OBIDIENT family into the larger Labour Party family. Obi’s clarification underscores that the Obidient Movement operates independently of any political party and its membership is not restricted to any particular affiliation.

“Our focus remains steadfast on driving positive change and promoting a New Nigeria for all. This is who we are and will remain for all time,” Obi concluded.
