As Supporters of Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Mr. Peter Obi and his running mate, Sen. Yusuf Datti had a Nationwide simultaneous Solidarity March yesterday, October 1st, 2022, a man believed to be one of the Obidients thrilled the masses with a message.
Obidients as a word is collective identity of Nigerians promoting the Candidacy of Obidatti23. They called themselves Obidients borrowed from distortion of the word Obedient to Obi+dient.
Meanwhile, the message from the supposed Obidient was directed at those who are planning to collect money and sell their votes in 2023.
Using a banner to display the message, he wrote “Prostitutes do collect about N10,000 for a day; why a vote seller collects N10,000 for 4 Years; meaning that a prostitute is more expensive”.
He ended up branding those selling their votes as “Political Olosho”; in other words ‘political prostitute’.
This anti vote buying campaign is unconnected with the fact the many believe that the two major political parties in Nigeria have been using vote buying and rigging to win elections since 1999 and there is hope that 2023 may usher in a new Nigeria.
