Following the decision of Peter Obi, a presidential candidate running on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform, to resign from the main opposition party, a group called the Democratic Forum for Justice and Equity (DFJE) expressed sorrow for supporting him.
Obi stunned the nation on Wednesday when he quit his membership in the PDP two days before the party’s presidential primary poll, which is set to take place on Saturday.
Although there are rumors that the former Governor of Anambra State will join the Labour Party to pursue his ambition, there are also rumors that he will join the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), which is led by Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the former Governor of Kano State and a presidential aspirant of the party.
However, the pro-Obi group in a statement issued on Friday by its National Coordinator, Malam Isah Ajilete, said it regretted supporting the former governor of Anambra State in the first place and has now withdrawn its loyalties.
The group noted that it was on the basis of equity and fairness for the Southeast that it initially declared support for Obi.
It said: “We have withdrawn our support for Peter Obi, having realised that he is an unstable politician who has taken his desperation to a selfish level. We made bold to say that we regretted ever supporting Peter Obi in the first place and we have since shifted our loyalty to a stable politician.
