HOW WE STARTED ONE OF THE LARGEST PETER OBI SUPPORT GROUP

Published

on

Peter Obi

The Convener and National Chairman of the Peter Obi Movement, (POM), a prominent support group backing the Labour party presidential candidate, Pastor Eliashib Ime- James has revealed the circumstances that led to the formation of POM and it’s exponential growth all over Nigeria and in the diaspora.

He revealed,

Honestly, the idea, ab initio was not for a national body that POM has become. the idea was to help create the structure in Lagos where I reside but in just three days I got request from 24 states to imitate the same structure. The reception has been unexpectedly phenomenal.”

The POM is Presently structured in the 36 states of the federation including FCT. With the full compliment of state, LGA, ward and polling unit leadership structures.

Pastor Ime – James says those politicians who believe Peter Obi does not have a political structure are living in dream land,
He enumerated,

” There are more than 500 support groups of Peter Obi and they all have there structures. Some of the support groups are state based, the least of all the support groups has structures in nothing less than 12 to 13 states.

When people talk about Peter Obi not having structure, they imagine that serving legislators, LGA chairmen, governors constitute the structure, but that thought process Is largely flawed in political party Organisation.

The people are the structure not elected officers. The palpable anger amongst the populace is enough to stir up the soul of the mob. If that happens, it could lead to the end of this geographical sphere called Nigeria. And We do not want that to happen; that anger Is what Is driving this people’s organic movement.

This Peter Obi candidature is structured beyond the labour movement, we the people are the movement and the numbers at the polls in February will prove me right.

So to answer you directly, yes peter Obi has the structure to win this election.”

For him, the beauty of the Peter Obi candidacy is the large spread outreach of the various support groups all working together to achieve victory.

” We are all relating well. Our efforts are coordinated by Prof Pat Utomi’s BIG TENT, Coalition for Peter Obi support groups, labour party and obiDatti Campaign Organisation. Every support group maintains it’s structure but collaborate within the aforementioned organs”.

The board of Trustees of the POM is comprised of eminent Nigerians who have excelled politically and joined forces for the betterment of Nigeria.
They include Pastor Moses Akinlaja Wey(chairman) Pastor Eliashib Ime-James Evang Glory Ufuoma Meruwa, Mr Chino Obasi, Barr. Rosemary Nekpen Emevon( Secretary), Mr Sunny Idowu Sado, Mrs Naomi Essien, Mrs Christianah John Bawa, Mr Abdulahi Tsoho and Mr Ejiofor Obimgba.

On who is funding POM?
“We are self funded. And I want to thank my state and LGA coordinators who have been doing a fantastic job coordinating, staying with our funds raising strategy and totally committed to the frugal ideals of our principal”

For those nay sayers who believe Peter Obi does not have a chance to win the 2023 Presidential election, Pastor Ime-James has a message for them,

“Please take this to the bank, Peter Obi will win this election and it will ignite the move toward a new Nigeria. I am not sentimental, I speak based on verifiable statistics. We are not fazed with their treats, POM National Intercessory prayer team, POM National security intelligence and POM volunteer legal team are battle ready to protect and defend our votes”

In a goodwill message to Nigerians as Christians celebrate Christmas which is the birth of Jesus Christ, the POM Convener urged Nigérians to use the yuletide season for sober reflections on the future of Nigeria,

” I plead with all men and women, in their good conscience to reflect on the state of our nation and the problems that beset us as a people. As we enter the Christmas period let us pray for spiritual and political rebirth for our Great country”.

He enjoined Nigerians to resolve, come 2023 not to vote along ethnic or religious lines but for the candidate who can unite us as a people and move Nigeria a national cake sharing syndrome to earning equitable income froductive ventures. A man who would walk the talk of frugality and transparency. A man who will lead as the example for other to follow.

” In my opinion, that person is Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the labour party”.

IPG Warns Senator Akpabio Against Discrediting Senate President’s Office

Published

The Ibomites for Progressive Governance (IPG), a burgeoning socio-political organization, has issued a stern warning to Senator Godswill Akpabio to refrain from undermining the dignity of the esteemed office of the Senate President.

The group’s caution comes in response to remarks attributed to Senator Akpabio, wherein he purportedly claimed that his wife, Ekaette Akpabio, was denied entry to the Government House in Uyo when she attempted to deliver a letter requesting a courtesy visit to former Governor Udom Emmanuel.

During a reception held in his honor in Ikot-Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State, Senator Akpabio allegedly asserted that his wife was left waiting at the Government House gate for an extended period without access to the premises.

In a swift response, IPG’s National Secretary, Mr. Chris Effiong, denounced Senator Akpabio’s statement as “a baseless fabrication,” emphasizing that Mrs. Akpabio is not a messenger and urged the Senator to exercise restraint in his public statements.

The group refuted the incident described by Senator Akpabio, asserting that there is no evidence to support his claims. They challenged him to provide proof of the alleged occurrence, highlighting that the former First Lady typically travels with a team of aides, including media personnel who would have documented such an incident if it occurred.

IPG expressed deep concern over Senator Akpabio’s apparent animosity towards former Governor Udom Emmanuel, warning against the propagation of intentional falsehoods that tarnish the reputation of public figures.

In conclusion, IPG called on Senator Akpabio to desist from fabricating malicious narratives and acknowledge the importance of upholding the dignity of the Senate President’s office, a position of national significance.
