The Obidient Movement is Not Tied to Any Political Party” – Peter Obi 


In a recent post on his official X handle, Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, clarified the independent nature of the Obidient Movement, which is composed of his supporters. This announcement has led analysts to speculate that Obi may be hinting at a possible departure from the Labour Party.


“I like to categorically state that the Obidient Movement is not the directorate of 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,” Obi stated.


Obi emphasized that while political parties may have youth mobilization directorates, the Obidient Movement transcends any single political entity. He described the Movement as a diverse and inclusive collective that goes beyond traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations, attracting members from across Africa and the globe.


“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,” Obi continued.


He further articulated that the Obidient Movement is guided by principles of adaptive and transformative change, progress, discipline, and democratic values. Advocating for fairness, equity, inclusivity, and justice, the Movement is committed to accountability and responsible governance.


“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,” the statement read.


This clarification underscores that the Movement operates independently of any political party and maintains a focus on driving positive change and promoting a New Nigeria for all.


With this declaration, political analysts are now considering the potential implications. Many see it as a strategic move to keep options open for future political alliances, suggesting that Obi might be hinting at a departure from the Labour Party.
