2023: ‘Obidients Are Beginning To See The Importance Of Structure’ – Dele Momodu




2023: It Is Almost Impossible For Peter Obi To Win - Dele Momodu

Supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi who are popularly known as Obidients have been said to have realized the significance of political structure now.

Naija News reports that a spokesman for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Momodu, said Obi’s supporters are now realizing the essence of structure days to the general election.

Momodu, who made the pronouncement when he featured on the Arise TV Morning Show on Monday noted that structure is it is a needed requirement in the game of politics and it is not something out of this world.

He questioned how many governors, House Representatives and House of Assembly candidates the Labour Party has that are working for them.

According to him to have a structure can not be overemphasized and that is the reason why Obi’s counterparts in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and the PDP flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar would say they are banking on their governors and candidate to work for them.

The PDP chieftain argued how the Obi camp would compete with the PDP which had been in existence for a long time and already had structures.

Momodu submitted that “The Obidients are beginning to see the importance of structure. Structure is not something out of this world, it is a needed requirement. How many governors have you got, which is what Tinubu is banking on that ‘my governors will help me’. How many senators or senatorial candidates does Atiku have? How many people for House Representatives, how many for House of Assembly? They haven’t got much of that.

“You are also going to need agents nationwide, thousands of them. That will form part of the structures.

“If you say ‘we don’t pay ‘shi shi’, you can see how people are moving away in droves in some of these smaller parties because the structures are not there. The structures also include the funding of each of those structures.

“We shall see in the next one week what will happen. The polls will not help Obi. If they like, let one million say Obi is going to win.”
