Peter Obi Didn’t Create Obidient Movement – Aisha Yesufu

AISHA Yesufu, a member of the Labour Party 2023 presidential campaign team, has said Peter Obi, the party’s flagbearer in the last general election, did not create the Obidient movement.

Yesufu said the Obidient movement was formed due to the fallout of the EndSARS killings.

She pointed out that the collective anger by Nigerian youths led to the formation of the Obidient movement of which Obi is a beneficiary.


Posting on X, Yesufu wrote: “Nobody created Obidient movement. After the #EndSARS killing by APC government many became interested in politics since they were mocked and told to vote those who killed the protesters. There was a collective anger to vote out APC. Peter Obi was a beneficiary of that collective anger of the people.

“When he made his intentions to run for presidency many with that collective anger supported him and from there the name was coined to fit the candidate following the habit of naming supporters after a person supported in Nigeria. There was already a movement before the name OBIdient was coined.”
