Peter Obi’s Labor Party, LP, members have been characterized as agitators who are intolerable by Senator Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu East Senatorial District.
The former governor of Enugu State asserted that the Obidients, also known as Obi’s supporters, make up fewer than 0.25 percent of all 200 million Nigerians.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Senator Nnamani, who is running for re-election to the National Assembly, had declared that the Labour Party would not be permitted to win any political office in Enugu State, stating “bye bye for Obidient.”
His stance drew a lot of criticism, with many of his fans assaulting him on Facebook and Twitter.
The legislator said in a new post on his verified Facebook page that his supporters are members of the Peoples Democratic Party, or PDP, and that they are unable to work for another party to succeed.
He contends that if the “Obidient Movement” is exclusively about Peter Obi, it shouldn’t have expanded to include seats in the governorship and the Assembly.
He wrote, “There is no Obidient PARTY! The name is LABOUR Party. A political party with candidates in all offices, including governorship.
“Our party and platform is different and that is PDP. FACT If we blur the distinction and foolishly vote Obidient that is Labour Party for President?
“For the minority ELITES it is easy to reverse 2 weeks later! For the majority over 98percent that is major “confuse “as they say on the Streets” Confuse Yamaru” as Umu Asadu will put it!
“Remember these advocates are Noisy, Loud, Intolerant, Proselytizers, Condescending but less than 0.25percent of our 200 million population. That is a generous guess of those propagandists controlling the NARRATIVE. Only a narrative.
“If Obidient is Peter Obi only why field candidates in other offices? Why do we establish foundation and beach head for Labour Party? In battle do you give invaders your beach head to Land (please forgive my war analogy, for want of more graphic example) and now seek to drive them away? ebeanoFAM answer my question. The answer is blowing in the wind”.
