Nobody created Obidient, Obi only benefited from it – Aisha Yesufu

Co-founder of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement, Aisha Yesufu has said the 2023 presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi did not created the ‘Obidient’ but only a beneficiary of the movement.

Yesufu said the Obidient movement was formed due to the fallout of the EndSARS killings.

Posting on X, Yesufu wrote: “Nobody created Obidient movement. After the #EndSARS killing by APC government many became interested in politics since they were mocked and told to vote those who killed the protesters. There was a collective anger to vote out APC. Peter Obi was a beneficiary of that collective anger of the people.

“When he made his intentions to run for presidency many with that collective anger supported him and from there the name was coined to fit the candidate following the habit of naming supporters after a person supported in Nigeria. There was already a movement before the name OBIdient was coined.”
