"The Obidient rallies at Festac and Amuwo were amazing. They are great achievements. Anyone who tries to belittle them is not politically astute. While Obi will not win in 2023, he has successfully disrupted politics in Nigeria. Well done Obi! Well done Obidients!”

The Obidient movement is something to be admired

The former presidential aide recalled how the governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai boasted that Obi won't get 200 persons on the street.

He said that number was surpassed during the rallies, noting that most of those who were on the street were people from the southeast.

Omokri added that "for one man’s ambition to mobilise people in such numbers is something to be admired".
