In a bid to commemorate Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi’s 62nd birthday anniversary, OBIdients reached out to some street kids in Ibadan on Wednesday.
The group, under the auspices of 1MMarchCrew, reached out to at least 50 kids by providing them with food items and other materials to mitigate the current hardship in the country. They also gave cash donations to the elderly in the area.
Speaking on behalf of the Obidients group, Weyimi Lube said the donation is made in compliance with Labour Party presidential candidate Obi’s directive to reach out to the less privileged rather than gifting him.

“Our being here is not to show that we have abundance but to demonstrate our love and care for one another. The children you have here have blood flowing in their veins like every other human and deserve love and care.
She stated that the sponsors of this donation were well-intentioned Nigerians who clamor for a better Nigeria and respect Peter Obi’s leadership qualities.
In his remarks, the caretaker of the kids, simply identified as Mr. Bala, commended the group for the donation.
“We appreciate your coming, and the most important thing is that it is not as little as you see. We appreciate the effort of your people,” he said.
“There is nothing too small for us. Every other thing, whether food, school fees, or all those things, we appreciate, and it is people like you among other people who come to help with one thing or another.
“We also use this medium to wish His Excellency, Mr. Peter Obi, a happy birthday. Thank you for your love for the masses,” he added.

Recall Peter Obi stated on Monday, July 17, that he would maintain his decision not to celebrate his birthdays in today’s Nigeria due to its current deplorable state.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle, Obi said that a birthday celebration for him would be counter-productive in today’s Nigeria, where many are grappling with myriad challenges, urging Obidients and well-meaning Nigerians that gifts meant to celebrate him be given to those in dire need.
