A group under the aegis of the Democratic Forum for Justice and Equity (DFJE) has said it regrets supporting Peter Obi, a former presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), following his decision to quit the party.
Obi on Wednesday had shocked the whole nation with the resignation of his membership of the PDP just 72 hours before the presidential primary election of the party which was scheduled to hold on Saturday.
The destination of the former governor is not yet known, although speculations suggest that he may join the Labour Party to realise his ambition, while others suggest that he may join the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) led by the former Governor of Kano State and a presidential aspirant of the party, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso as his running mate.
However, the pro-Obi group in a statement issued on Friday by its National Coordinator, Malam Isah Ajilete, said it regretted supporting the former governor of Anambra State in the first place and has now withdrawn its loyalties.
The group noted that it was based on equity and fairness for the Southeast that it initially declared support for Obi.
It said: “We have withdrawn our support for Peter Obi, having realised that he is an unstable politician who has taken his desperation to a selfish level. We made bold to say that we regretted ever supporting Peter Obi in the first place and we have since shifted our loyalty to a stable politician.
