Doyin Okupe, the Director-General of the Labour Party, LP, says most followers of the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, popularly known as “obidient” are active members of other political parties.
Okupe said this at the launching of the 1,234-member presidential campaign council of the Labour Party (LP), in Abuja yesterday.

Okupe affirmed that the party would have most of the 2023 votes owing to the youthful nature of the electorate. He mentioned that the obidient movement now has a life of its own and is now an unprecedented and formidable force in Nigeria.
He said, “As we begin the 2023 round of electioneering campaigns, the registered voter population figure has tripled since 2019. More than 60 percent of the nearly 100 million registered voters today are youths.
“This shows that there are more new voters in the voter register than old ones, and all the newly-registered voters are ‘Obidients’.
“It is just for us to pray for life till the elections. We will show them. Nigeria is a youthful stream and they are ready to support all the way.
“Unknown to many, a significant number of the youth and drivers of this movement are active members and supporters of the other political parties.
“These are people who could not ignore the overbearing superiority in leadership quality, personal disposition, national appeal, private and public service record, and the clear-cut expression of vision and governance solutions of Obi and Datti.”
