Obi’s Revolution Against Injustice, Poverty, Unemployment, Corruption – Ohanaeze Explains
The leadership of the Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has described the support received by the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as a revolution against injustice, poverty, unemployment, and corruption in the country.
The group’s National Publicity Secretary, Dr Chiedozie Ogbonnia, who said this in an interview with media, said Obi represented the Nigerian conscience, “moral probity, generational hope, and redemption epiphany”.
“A lot has been said that the Labour Party, especially as it concerns Obi, has no structure.
It needs to be pointed out that the Obi movement is a massive reaction against Nigerian pathology.
People use the Obi phenomenon to express dissatisfaction with the status quo.
“It is a revolt against injustice, poverty, unemployment, corruption, and all forms of vicious circles that have become the trademark of Nigeria.
In other words, every revolution is a structural change. What the Obi movement stands for is to dismantle whatever structure has brought us to this intractable tragedy and reprehensible denouement, the structure that has been a knee on the neck of Nigerians.
“Importantly, ideas rule the world. Ideas, as you know, possess the potency to develop into an ideology, a movement, and finally a structure. Lastly, the structure debate has been overwhelmed and rested by the recent events in Nigeria.’’
