A former Ambassador to the Philippines and ace broadcaster, Dr. Yemi Farounbi, has expressed concern about the forthcoming general elections and the chances of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party and former governor of Anambra State, Peter Gregory Obi at the polls.
According to him, the youths are in full support of Peter Obi because he is advocating for their well-being.
He went on to say that Peter Obi would continue the movement carried out by youths nationwide against the brutality carried out by the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS.
Dr. Yemi Farounbi believes that Peter Obi is a real phenomenon and a model to Nigerian youths. He voiced his opinion about Peter Obi in a live interview session with Edmund Obilo of Splash FM.
Dr. Yemi called on INEC to ensure that the election would be seen as transparent to avoid a repeat of ENDSARS protest that dislocated the relative peace of Nigeria.
Today, Several commentators believes that, there is a new movement that has already shown signs to surpass the ENDSARS movement. It is the OBI-dient movement.
“Peter Obi has chosen a ‘minor’ party in the eyes of the oligarchy, but the young population of Nigeria have said that Labour Party, the platform Peter Obi has chosen to run on is not minor in their eyes.”
Peter Obi’s Presidential bid has dangerously reawakened the spirit of the ENDSARS movement – perhaps in a more constructive fashion.
