The Peter Obi Support Network has praised Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, the PDP’s governorship candidate in the 2021 election for governor of Anambra State, for joining the “Obidient Movement,” hailing the move as long overdue.
Onwuasoanya Jones, the director of strategic communication for the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, said in a statement on Saturday that Ozigbo’s official support for Peter Obi’s campaign demonstrated that he was a progressive patriot with a strong desire for a Nigeria that worked.
Jones said the group was not surprised by the move.
He urged other patriots to take a cue from Ozigbo and join the “Obidient” campaign in order to steer the country away from imminent disaster.
The statement read, “He is a patriotic Nigerian who is passionate about building a working, progressive and a united nation, and it is not in any way a surprise that he has made his declaration to join the most popular and most promising people’s movement in the history of Nigeria’s Fourth Republic politics.
“We have always known that his heart has been with this movement and we welcome him with joy and assure him of our absolute cooperation in ensuring that this movement is piloted to success for the benefit of all Nigerians.
“This is not the time to sit on the fence, this is a time for every true Nigerian and lover of progress to take a stand with the people and participate actively in salvaging the fate of our dear nation.
“Like Chief Valentine Ozigbo, many other Nigerian patriots have put Nigeria’s interest above their personal political and pecuniary interests, by aligning with the best presidential candidate in this election, and it is our hope as an organisation that more political leaders and statesmen will break off the shackles of partisanship and join in the mission to save our nation.”
