The Obidient Movement working for the candidacy of Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, Presidential Candidate on Wednesday revealed its plan for the March 11 state elections.
The body announced that it would adopt Governorship and House of Assembly candidates in states and constituencies where the party has no flagbearer.
The representatives of the movement led by Valentine Ozigbo, Special Adviser to Obi on Technology and Strategic Alliances, addressed a press conference in Abuja.
Ozigbo disclosed they were watching the conduct of candidates in states ahead of the presidential election and would declare support “for those who work for a New Nigeria”.
“Obidients Movement will consult with stakeholders across the country to announce the adopted governorship and assembly candidates in states where the Labour Party doesn’t have candidates,” he said.
The selection will take into account their track records as honest citizens, dedication to the welfare of the people, their alignment with values and principles, as well as public support for Obi.
On LP’s preparedness to win the February 25 poll, Ozigbo hinted that the party is “leveraging on technology, the strength of the youth, and the brilliance of the candidacy of Peter Obi”.
The 2021 Anambra governorship candidate said with the right leadership and good governance, Nigeria can achieve its full potential and become a prosperous and thriving nation.
Ozigbo stressed that Obi and his supporters, like all well-meaning citizens, wants a peaceful presidential election that is free, fair and transparent.
The movement charged the electorates to “come out and exercise their civic responsibility on Saturday and be free to vote for who they want”.
