On Saturday, September 9, 2023, Obi sent out a tweet on his verified Twitter account encouraging his fans not to give up in the face of the tribunal’s decision and emphasising that giving up is not an option on the road to a new Nigeria.
Obi added in his statement that nothing good comes easily in life and that lasting change requires tenacity, selflessness, and fortitude.
DESPAIR IS NOT AN OPTION: MESSAGE TO ALL OBIDIENTS AND MY SUPPORTERS, HE SAID, Adding that the electoral tribunal’s displeasure had motivated him to recommit himself to the cause of a new Nigeria.
“My dear Obidient family and supporters, I trust that you have all heard, or read, my response to the judgement delivered by the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) on Wednesday, September 6, 2023,” part of the message said. Understandably, there has been a broad feeling of disappointment within our group as well as among Nigerians in general who had thought that the results of the presidential election on February 25th would bring in the Nigeria of our dreams.
“That dream is still alive and well; it has only been postponed for the time being. Since the Tribunal’s decision, the Obidients and the majority of our supporters have seemed generally despondent. I can guarantee you that we are not going to give up or give up on this adventure.
Additionally, he said, “I guarantee you that we will continue until we reach our goal with even more enthusiasm and dedication. Nigeria must be owned by all Nigerians, not just a few.
