A TV analyst at Arise Television, Dr Sam Amadi has said that the southeast region embraced the Obidients movement in the same way other regions embraced it. Dr Amadi made this known through his official Twitter handle.
Recall that the Obidient movement started when Peter Obi joined the Labour Party to contest for president. The percentage score for Labour Party in the southeast in the just concluded presidential election has raised alarm that the Obidient movement is an Igbo affair.
Dr Amadi however stated that the reason the southeast voted Peter Obi is because the rest of Nigerians agreed he is the best candidate among the others.
He went on to explain how the Igbos voted for Obasanjo ahead of Ojukwu. He said Obasanjo defeated Ojukwu in Anambra and no one looked at the percentage.
"Igbos voted for OBJ twice, they are patriots. Igbo voted for GEJ twice, they are patriots. Igbos voted for Yaradua & Ariku they are patriots. Then Igbos voted for @PeterObi who the rest of Nigeria says is d best, they are no longer patriots," he wrote.
