Baba-Ahmed was also absent at the occasion which featured a “Pre-Campaign World Press Conference and presentation of the Presidential Campaign Council list.”

Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, the director-general of Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe described the ‘Obidient’ movement as organic.

Okupe said the processes through which Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar emerged as presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are “dishonourable” and “flawed”.

“In all honesty, these errors of selfish and opportunistic political manipulation are not only short-sighted and dangerous, but strike at the very heart of Nigeria’s peaceful coexistence, and in fact the very survival of the nation as an entity.

“And that is why, in response to this affront to good judgement, more than at any time in our history, our country is today witnessing her hottest, fiercest and most dynamic citizen-led political experience, spearheaded largely by the youth population.

“At this juncture, for the avoidance of doubt, let me state here clearly that our party, the Labour Party, as well as the Obi-Datti presidential ticket of the party, have not spent a kobo to organise, influence, or secure the massive following and support we have been getting from the Obidient Movement to date,” he added.

KanyiDaily recalls that Ohanaeze Ndigbo also claimed that about 18 state governors across party lines are currently working for Peter Obi’s presidential bid.
