2023: OBIDIENT MOVEMENT IS BEYOND ETHNICITY AND RELIGION – OKUPE
Abuja: Dr Doyin Okupe, Director General of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organisation, has stated that the Obidient Movement which currently drives the Presidential bid of the Labour Party, Peter Obi transcends ethnicity and religious bias.
Dr Okupe said this in his opening remarks at the ongoing Pre-Campaign Press conference, in Abuja.He explained that if Presidential candidates were to be pre-qualified, both the candidates of the All Progressives Congress and the All Progressives Congress would have since been disqualified.
Furthermore, he predicted that PDP’s internal crisis will continue to fester because its candidate, Atiku Abubakar emerged after “a skewed party primary” which jettisoned the time tested respect for zoning and rotation of power as enshrined in its very constitution.
For the APC, the campaign DG noted that the party shot itself on the foot with its unjustifiable and indefensible Muslim-Muslim ticket which is a clear indication that the party lacks respect for Nigeria’s religious diversity.
