In a series of posts on his X.com handle on Thursday, the former Anambra state governor said his position on the Obidient Movement was to clarify issues that concern his supporters.

He said:

“For the avoidance of doubt, ‘I remain a committed, Loyal Labour Party member’. That is my definitive response to all Nigerians who may be in doubt about my party affiliation in the light of recent reports and conflicting interpretations of recent political expressions.”

Peter Obi has recently been rumoured to be nursing a plan to dump the Labour Party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following his meeting with the former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.

Several political pundits have predicted that the duo could work together to unseat President Bola Tinubu in the 2027 presidential election.

Rilwan Olanrenwaju, a PDP chieftain spoke on the development with TheTalk.NG, described the meeting between Atiku and Obi as a normal event in politics.

According to Olanrewaju:

“H.E. Alhaji Abubakar and H.E. Peter Obi are friends and brothers. I don’t see any permutations yet, as it’s still very premature. It’s normal for two friends to meet and spend time together.”
