The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Labour Party has announced the appointment of 10 credible members of the Obidient family to oversee the newly created Obidient Directorate. This directorate will form an integral part of the Labour Party for greater purpose.

Recall that the National Chairman of the party, Barrister Julius Abure, during a recent world press briefing, promised the integration of the Obidient family into the Labour Party to address grievances being expressed by its members.

The National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Obiora Ifo, in a press statement on Thursday, said that the decision was taken to address such grievances “as part of the repositioning efforts of the Labour Party towards integrating millions of our youths, particularly, the Obidient family into the larger family of the Labour Party”.

To that effect, ten members of the Obidients family have been appointed to pilot the affairs of the ‘Obidient Directorate’. Members of the Directorate include:
