Mobilization of funds in support of Peter Obi’s Presidential bid in 2023 has hit the first N1 million after the inauguration of the group in Abuja by His Excellency, Peter Obi.
The group in a statement issued immediately after the contribution which is domiciled in Keystone Bank with the Account Name: PETER OBI SUPPORT NETWORK and Account Number: 1012528032 thanked Nigerians for expressing love for the actualization of Peter Obi’s Presidency.
The group vowed to take the campaign to every nooks and crannies in the Federal Republic of Nigeria and urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to maintain the integrity of the North/South zoning formula by zoning the Presidency to the Southern part of the country after the North’s 8 years rule through Buhari.
The group warns that PDP should avoid setting a dangerous precedence by allowing itself to be used by selfish politicians to achieve a back-to-back Northern rule for 16 years which might increase the current tension in the country.
The statement reads, “We need to bring to the attention of lovers of Peter Obi who firmly believe in his Presidency that the contribution of N1,000 each by Nigerians toward the actualization of the vision this (yesterday) morning hit One Million Naira ( N1,000,000) mark as more donations trickles in. The group urged those who could do more than N1,000 to go ahead and donate as this will help the group achieve its targets within the shortest possible time.
“The response of Nigerians since the group was inaugurated by Peter Obi in Abuja is very impressive and this has shown that Nigerians believe in the project to take away the country from the grip of political merchants who after looting our collective resources, intends to use stolen wealth to continue their subjugation of our collective will and plunged the country into backwardness.
“Nigerians must cut off their supply lines by not allowing them into power. Once they get into power……. they can only loot even more funds, thereby destroying our collective heritage. What shall we leave to our future generations? This generation owes it as a duty to cut them off from our collective resources.
“We also call on Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to make the mistake of throwing the Presidency open but to zone the slot to the Southern part of the country to promote fairness, Justice and Equity.”
