Peter Obi’s supporters, known as #Obidients are set to launch a fundraiser for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, ahead the 2023 General Elections.
In a bid to bolster his chances in the 2023 presidential election, which holds 178 days from now, Nigerians in the Diaspora have formed groups of committees to launch crowdfunding initiatives for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi.
Their plan in the coming days, is to unveil the crowdfunding portal with a target to raise $150 million from Obi’s supporters in the diaspora and N100 billion from those in Nigeria, THISDAY has reliably gathered.
A dependable source close to one of Obi’s supporters leading the process, said yesterday, they are targeting small amount in contributions to be gathered from supporters largely from the grassroots to help the LP set up more structures across the country and make the former Anambra State governor a formidable contender in the presidential race.
The initiative is being driven by young enthusiastic Nigerians in the tech sector who are making waves and yearning for new leadership at the helm of affairs in the country. Some of whom have only recently come of voting age.
The campaigns for the presidential election, which holds February 25, 2023, will officially commence on September 28, 2022.
Unlike 2019, when the race was essentially between All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), LP has become a major factor in the coming presidential poll.
Charity Reporters also gathered that Peter Obi was in campus of Howard University in Washington DC, USA to consult, sensitize the diaspora based Nigerians and to seek for support towards his presidential pursuit in 2023. (SEE FULL SPEECH IN THE LINK).
