Iyere also reiterated that apart from the above-outlined Peter Obi Support Groups, several NGOs, CSOs, FBOs, Cooperative Groups and other Social Networks shall likewise benefit from the FUND40MB Donation Campaign because they will derive a share of the funds generated, in order to enable them to address certain existing threats that may hinder the credibility of the electoral processes and outcomes, particularly the risks of human rights violation, electoral violence and vote-rigging among others.

“This fundraising drive will be taken from door to door, neighborhood to neighborhood,  city to city, coast to coast and country to country, until we hit our target or goal,  which is to ensure that sufficient funds are fundraised, generated and mobilized for the support groups of Peter Obi and other credible guber and parliamentary candidates across party lines, as well as for NGOs, CSOs, FBOs and other related groups pragmatically working for Nigeria’s  peaceful and credible democratic transition in 2023”, says Iyere.

Also, Patience Ozowor, popularly known as “MAMA G”, declared that the FUND40MB Donation Campaign will generate sufficient funds to support the “Obedient Movement” in the efforts to enforce the victory of Peter Obi in 2023. Ozokwor appealed to Nigerians and global donors to make sacrificial and generous donations into the account which she displayed to Journalists. “For the sake of our children’s future and posterity, please donate to assist this cause, Peter Obi must be elected Nigeria’s president in 2023, else the country may go into extinction”, declared Ozokwor.
