Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress, Yekini Nabena, has incurred the wrath of some obedient Nigerians following his warning to Peter Obi not to rely on any support from his ‘Obidient’ movement ahead of the 2023 election.
According to Nabena, the former Anambra governor would be shocked to discover that the ‘Obedient’ movement only exists on social media when the actual voting process begins.
The Bayelsa-born politician made this known via a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, were he expressed confidence that the APC will secure nothing less than 2.1 million votes in the Niger Delta during the presidential election.
He said, “I can tell you that the so-called ‘Obedient movement’ only exists on social media and after the coming elections they will naturally turn to disobedient movement, and later obituary because the movement will naturally vamoose.
“The APC will secure nothing less than 2.1 million votes from Escravos to Forcados, Brass to Bonny, in the Niger Delta. This is because our people are massively coming out to get their PVC and they know the right party and candidate to vote for when the time comes.”
Reacting to his statement, Peter Obi’s supporters (Obedient) did not waste time to slam him noting that this time they are fully prepared to make a change.

@temithanks22: So those online don’t vote abi…Some of this politicians no get sense.
@omoga01: This guy like some many of those like him are professional politicians with no other visible source of income – just politics. He’s only serving the use of his political employers. The wind of change is here. You’ve got 2 choices. Either move along or against its tide.
@patience68978203: We shall see, we, in the diaspora will make sure thet we will contribute the required money needed to win 2023 election
@vanowai: If it exists only on social media, why are you people worried ?
@frank_kadiri: I’ve a voter card to vote for Mr Obi…so go and seat in one corner and see us voting as OBIDIENT citizens
@larrybusy36: Is social media operators not human beings? Why do u think there is massive turn out for PVC? Social media is powerful more than u can imagine. #ENDSARS should give u some insight.
