Tanko Yunusa, the chief spokesman of the Obi-Datti organization, emphasized the significance of the Obidient Movement, asserting its prominence over the Labour Party. In an interview with Channels Television on Friday, Yunusa described the movement as a distinct entity with its own vitality, driven by the pursuit of good governance. He stated, “It’s bigger than the Labour Party. It is so because it is a move of its own that has a life of its own.” Yunusa highlighted the movement’s commitment to challenging any actions, including those of Peter Obi, that do not align with the principles of good governance.

Recently, the Labour Party faced criticism and renamed its Directorate of Obidient Affairs to the Directorate of Mobilisation and Integration. According to LP’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, the renaming followed controversies surrounding the former directorate. The inauguration of the revamped directorate is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at the party’s National Secretariat in Utako, Abuja.

In response to the developments, Peter Obi clarified on his social media page that the Obidient Movement transcends political affiliations and encompasses a diverse collective advocating for good governance. He emphasized its inclusive nature, reaching beyond traditional political, religious, and ethnic boundaries.
