He however warned that those planning to instill more crisis in the party to have a rethink as they won’t fold their arms and see their effort been crumbled. 

On the issue of factionilazation of the Obedient Movement, the pioneer member of the group described it as unfortunate  maintaining that those involved were originally not dedicated members but involved for their selfish interest.
