The nationwide suspicion that a new formidable opposition force has emerged on the Nigerian political landscape, was confirmed recently when the spokesman for the Atiku Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala stated that Tinubu will find it harder to deal with the supporters of Peter Obi, aka “the Obidient movement”, than navigating the challenges of Nigeria’s battered economy
The supporters of the Nigerian Labour Party’s presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi, are globally referred to as “The obidient movement”
Bwala said this in reaction to the response of Labour Parties Vice presidential candidate Datti Baba Ahmed on Arize TV recently
Datti Ahmed, stated that Tinubu was affirmed president because the Nigerian supreme court allowed the illegality of the lower court which had used questionable technicalities to side step evidence of criminal indictments against Tinubu. These included forgery, failure to secure 25% of votes in Abuja and the most alraming of all, the 1993 drug money forfeiture rulings in the United States
Posting on his X handles, Bwala stated that Tinubu will have bigger problems dealing with LP and the Obidient movement.
He stated, “Listening to Datti Baba-Ahmed this evening, I believe the man has not shifted a bit from his earlier position, although he now accepts the fact that Tinubu is the President by the court.
“But Peter Obi and Datti’s position today convinced me that @officialABAT Tinubu has more problems to manage with the Labour Party and Obedient than the entire economy and insecurity in Nigeria.
“How he will navigate this is a course to be taught at OAU, ABU, and Nsukka universities,” he added.
