This was the case in Port Harcourt yesterday when HE Peter Obi and his running mate, Dr Yusuf Baba-Ahmed had gone, at the invitation of HE Nyesom Wike, to commission a newly built flyover bridge. A scheduled event as carefully planned by Wike may not have anticipated that massive Obidient entry, so ardent in the course of supporting the candidacy of HE Peter Obi for presidency. Right from Port Harcourt International Airport located at Omagwa, a suburb of Port Harcourt, which is about 37km to the city itself, Obidients took over. And in the city of Port Harcourt proper, they turned his arrival into a carnival. It was not a campaign. It was a purpose almost turned to another purpose!

It has always been said that the sunlight that breaks the dawn is saturated with so many things, most positive. As humans, we try to walk purposefully through every new day, but most times things we cannot control find their way through. It is a phenomenon already willed by God!

A very colourful event where HE Peter Obi spoke in the manner of his mission and vision for Nigeria… His message never changes, but at any given opportunity he deepens it.

Remarkably, he shared how the country can develop through tapping into the vast opportunities across the country in what economics would call areas of relative advantage. But the method he professes shows a man who understands what our issues and challenges are – getting down with the people to articulate and aggregate their needs on a state-to-state town hall meeting with a strata of each state’s sectors. This would involve state holders like political leaders, traditional institutions, the labour and workforce, the youths and students, the market men and women, the organized labour, down to associations of various artisan etc.

A new form of leadership breaks forth in our horizon with the presidency of Obi-Datti. Let us all join hands and birth it.
