Peter Obi Clarifies: ‘Obidient Movement’ Stands Independent of Political Parties


Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has emphasized that the ‘Obidient Movement’ operates independently of any political party. In a series of posts on his X handle on Wednesday, the former Anambra State governor refuted claims that the movement is tied to any political directorate.

Obi clarified that the movement is a diverse and inclusive collective, transcending traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations, with members from various regions of Nigeria and beyond. He highlighted that the movement’s foundation is built on principles of loyalty, integrity, and democratic values, aiming to create a better future for Nigeria through the New Nigeria project.

“I want to categorically state that the Obidient Movement is not a directorate of any particular political party. Any individuals claiming to lead this non-existent directorate are not members of the broader Obidient Movement,” Obi stated. He stressed that while political parties may have youth mobilization directorates, the Obidient Movement is far broader, including members from diverse backgrounds and locations.

Obi continued, “The Obidient Movement’s membership spans across Africa and the globe, including individuals from rural communities, and public, private, and corporate sectors, all united by a shared vision for a New and better Nigeria. We advocate for fairness, equity, inclusivity, and justice, committed to a strictly accountable and responsible code of government.”

He reiterated the movement’s dedication to fostering positive change through integrity, honesty, and accountability, 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.”

Obi concluded with a call for clarity, stating, “The Obidient Movement operates independently of any political party, and its membership is not limited 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.”
