Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the party, and Yusuf Datti-Baba Ahmed, vice-presidential candidate, were absent from the unveiling.
Doyin Okupe is the director-general of the campaign; Oseluka Obaze is deputy director-general and general manager of the campaign; Yusuf Bello Maitama, deputy director-general (north), and Denzel Kentebe is deputy director-general (south).
Speaking at the unveiling, Okupe said there was no doubt that the ascendancy of Peter Obi to a “prime position in the hearts and minds of the Nigerian people, has been fuelled by the patriotic zeal, vibrancy, creativity and shining example, in discipline, character and decency of the Obidient movement”.
He said because of the capacity of Obi the Obi-dient movement has today rapidly evolved into the biggest voluntary political movement in Nigeria history.
He assured citizens that “as we commence the campaign for the 2023 elections, in earnest, our party and our candidates, will remain committed to honest, clean and issue-based engagements, with the Nigerian people, whose mandate we seek, in order to turn around the fortunes of this our great, but badly misgoverned country”.
