The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has revealed that the obidient movement would not be disbanded following the Supreme Court verdict which affirmed the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the 2023 elections.
Speaking on Monday during a press conference to address the position of the Supreme Court on the elections, Obi said the young people would be built and made stronger.
He added that though the legal battle for him and his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as well as the Labour Party is over, the struggle to make Nigeria better continues.
Obi said: “In the coming months we will build the party, we will make it stronger. We will build those young people. We will come out stronger and more committed to a new Nigeria.
“The future is dynamic. Our focus now is to ensure that we do the right thing for the benefit of Nigeria.”
He also said that, “I want to assure them that this is not the end of our journey but in fact the beginning. Nigerians heard you, the world has taken note and we will not forget easily. We shall endure, persist until we reach our destination because new Nigeria is our destination. A destination is not an event.”
Obidient is a word coined to describe the supporters of the LP flagbearer, Peter Obi.

The LP flagbearer made this claim on Monday during a world press conference in Abuja.
The former Governor of Anambra State said the Supreme Court ruling was a show of force against Nigerians.
