The Convener of The BIG-TENT, Prof. Pat Utomi has announced that two former heads of state have endorsed the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi for the 2023 elections, The BIG-TENTis a coalition of political parties, social movements and civil society organisations.

The political economist did not however name the former rulers. He said in Abuja at a town hall meeting organised by The BIG-TENT to galvanise support for Obi, his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed and the party: “Money alone doesn’t win elections. Two former heads of state have said to me they are Obi-dients. A lot of people want to join the movement, without joining the Labour Party to ensure that Obi and Baba-Ahmed win to capture our country back from those who have held us down”.

Supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate described themselves as being “Obi-dient”, or rather “obidient” to the cause of restoring Nigeria’s lost virtues.

According to Utomi, the Labour Party has enough positive structures in place than other political parties to recapture Nigeria from those who have held the country down.

He said that The BIG-TENT had worked at developing real structures for Obi, adding that oppositions to ‘Obidients’ would be shocked by the result.

“The LP has better structures than the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress. When people talk about structures, I kind of laugh because they don’t understand the meaning of structure. The structure is a criminal network of people who can fix elections and we have to stop that; that’s not structure.

“We at The BIG-TENT have worked at developing real structures and they are going to be shocked at what they will see. Many of the Peter Obi Support Groups have structures on their own that can win these elections. At every poll during the election day, we will have 20 people who belong to these structures.

“When they get to the polling units, it won’t be business as usual. And when they try to mess things up by doctoring Information Technology from the Independent National Electoral Commission, they will meet us there because we know they are planning things like that, but they will meet us there with technology”.
