In a heartfelt address to his unwavering supporters, former Anambra governor and presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has sent a powerful message of resilience and hope in the face of adversity. This comes just days after the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) dismissed his petition challenging President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory in the February 25, 2023 election.
In a post shared on his social media platform (X, formerly Twitter) on Saturday, September 9, 2023, Peter Obi titled his message “DESPAIR IS NOT AN OPTION,” underlining the importance of maintaining hope and determination even when faced with disappointment.
A Vision Deferred, But Not Abandoned
The message acknowledged the widespread disappointment felt within his fold and among Nigerians who had hoped for a different outcome in the presidential election. However, Obi reassured his supporters that their dream of a better Nigeria remains very much alive, though temporarily deferred.
He emphasized that the journey toward positive change in Nigeria was never meant to be a sprint but a challenging marathon, one that would require sacrifices, perseverance, resilience, and determination. Peter Obi recognized the formidable forces they were up against but remained resolute in his belief that these challenges could be overcome.
The Power of Unity and Commitment
Peter Obi highlighted the progress his movement had achieved, the growing recognition of their cause, and the fact that they could no longer be ignored. He called on his supporters, affectionately known as “Obidients,” to stand strong, unwavering, and not to succumb to despair or surrender.
Obi’s message underscored his lifelong commitment to building a “New Nigeria” where the nation’s resources and opportunities are accessible to all, not just a select few. He made it clear that their recent setbacks had only served to further inspire him and re-dedicate himself to the cause.
A Brighter Future for Nigeria
In conclusion, Peter Obi assured his supporters and all Nigerians that their collective vision of a “New Nigeria” is not only possible but within reach. He called for principled and lawful approaches to achieving this goal, reaffirming his determination to persist until Nigeria truly belongs to all its citizens.
Peter Obi’s message serves as a rallying cry for all those who believe in the possibility of a brighter future for Nigeria. Despite the recent setback in the election tribunal, Obi’s words remind us that hope, determination, and unity can pave the way for positive change.
