2023: Obidient Movement Beyond Ethnicity, Religion – Okupe

The Director General of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe, has said the obidient movement has gone beyond ethnic and religious sentiments. Naija News reports that supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party are known as ‘The Obidients”.

Speaking on Wednesday during the Pre-Campaign Press conference of the party in Abuja, Okupe said the movement is beyond religion and ethnicity bias, asking the opposing parties to stop linking the movement to a particular tribe or faith. Okupe asserted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has shown that it lacks respect for Nigeria’s religious diversity following its choice of a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.

The former presidential aide added that the party cannot justify or defend such an action because it does not care about Nigeria and its citizens.
He predicted that the internal crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will continue to linger due to the fact the party failed to respect the zoning and rotation of power arrangement as enshrined in its very constitution. Okupe added that the PDP will continue to face issues because its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, emerged from a skewed primary election.
