The junior brother of the former Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose, one Isaac Fayose, is in the news saying that the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi needs N50 billion to be able to defeat the ruling party candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He acknowledged rightly that Obi is the most popular Presidential candidate who can win if election is conducted in the social media today but would need N50b to buy structure to match Tinubu.
In continuation of the education of Nigerians on the spirit and letter of the Obidient Movement, by the media office, Mr Fayose Jnr and all those in his school of thought, obsessed with structure and money politics need to be reminded that they are living in the past and refusing to face the reality that situation is changing for good.
Obi-Datti do not need N50b or any constructed and procured structure to rescue the country but human beings who indeed are the victims of the previous so called structures.
The Obedient Movement is powered by human beings as represented in the Labour Party logo, Father, Mother and Child not money. Human beings are far more bigger resources.
Maybe it’s necessary and germane to draw the attention of Mr Fayose to the just concluded Presidential election in the East African country, Kenya where a 55 year old William Ruto of a two year old United Democratic Alliance defeated a 77 year old Raila Odinga’s of 17 year old Orange Democratic Movement. Ruto’s party has nobody in the Senate of 67 members, one member only in the 349 member Assembly but Odinga’s party has 20 members in the 67 member Senate and 76 of 349 Assembly members but these structures could not deliver him above rookie party of Ruto.
Ruto had human beings and social media structure behind him while Odinga had the support of the ruling party and backing of the President and government of Kenya and their entire structures and money.
The huge lesson from Kenya freely available for Fayose and all those thinking like him is that age is a factor, money is not, social media is a factor and structure is not.
Always remain Obidient and focused for a new Nigeria.
