Obidient Movement bigger than Labour Party — Yunusa Tanko

The chief spokesman of the Obi-Datti organisation, Tanko Yunusa, has declared that the Obidient Movement is bigger than the Labour Party.

Yunusa made this declaration in an interview on Channels Television on Friday monitored by DAILY POST.

According to him, “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. What they are interested in is good governance.

“Even if the Labour Party is doing something that is wrong, they are able to challenge it. Let me go further. Even His Excellency, Peter Obi, if he does something that is not aligned with good governance, we would challenge it.”

The Obi-Datti organisation spokesman said the Obidient Movement is all about good governance, which Peter Obi preaches.

“They are loyal to the messages that connect to good governance and Peter Obi is championing that particular good governance,” he stated.

Recall that the Labour Party recently renamed a directorate of the party named the Directorate of Obidient Affairs after a backlash.

According to the National Publicity Secretary of LP Obiora Ifoh, the Obidient Directorate is now renamed as the Directorate of Mobilisation and Integration.

“Following the controversies arising from the creation of the Directorate of OBIDIENT Affairs, in the party, the Directorate is hereby renamed the Directorate of Mobilisation and Integration,” Obiorah said on Thursday.

“The inauguration will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at the party’s National Secretariat, Utako, Abuja, by 10 a.m. Party members and the general public should take note,” he noted.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the move, Obi, on his X page late Wednesday, said the movement is beyond the LP and cuts across party, gender and ethnic divides.

He wrote, “There may be a youth mobilization directorate in political parties, but the Obidient Movement is far beyond a particular political party.

“The Obidient Movement is a diverse and inclusive collective that transcends traditional political, religious, and ethnic affiliations.

“It is not domiciled within any particular party or headquartered in any particular part of the country.”
