Chieftain of the Labour Party, Professor Pat Utomi, has said before the emergence of Peter Obi has pulled Nigeria back from a ride into destruction.
Utomi who is also the convener of The Big Tent, an independent campaign council for Peter Obi said this when different support groups for the ObiDatti campaign converged at the nation’s capital in Abuja.
Vanguard reports that the conference hosted by The Big Tent, one of the largest single independent body of support groups with a stand-alone campaign council for the ObiDatti Campaign, was organised to harmonize relations between the support groups, resolve all pending issues, build synergy in objectives and efforts of supports groups, as well as unveil activities and programmes for the remainder of the campaign period.
Utomi said that before the emergence of the movement, the deep roots of bad leadership in Nigeria had purposed it for a free ride down the slope of destruction.
The renowned economist who presented certificate to support groups during the interactive session, described the Obidient Movement as Nigeria’s hope.
On his part, delivering an opening speech, titled: “Maximizing Our Strength in Numbers through Synergy and Coordination”, the director, Big Tent Support Groups Council, Arc. Dr Peter Agada, explained the importance of cooperation and coordination between support groups stating that it is the only way to, “take our country back.”
Commenting on the need to revive the organic following that greeted the campaign in the second half of last year creating what is now known as the Obidient movement, he said: “We must ensure that the energy and vibrancy that took Nigeria and indeed the world by
storms in July, August and September, returns in the countdown to the elections.”
He, however, assured the support groups that their concerns will be given due attention encouraging them to intensify their efforts in the campaign and to “leave with renewed resolve, energy and determination.”
