The vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Datti Baba-Ahmed, has reacted to his brother working for President Bola Tinubu-led government.


Datti, on Monday, said he is not bothered about his brother, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed’s appointment as Special Adviser on Political Matters to Vice-President, Kashim Shettima.

Bellnews recalls that Baba-Ahmed, who is also the spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), announced his appointment in a post on the 18th of September, 2023 on his official X page.

Datti in an interview with Arise TV said his opposition is not targeted towards the government’s appointments, rather, his opposition is specifically directed at the President and Vice President themselves.

The vice presidential candidate further stated that his elder brother is an adult, hence he is entitled to his own rights and life choices.

Datti said, “I am after the government, I am not after an appointment. I am after the President and the Vice-President, I can not come down to speak about any appointment. Hakeem is by far my elder brother so there is no better way to say he is an adult or he has his own rights or his own life to live. Our politics are completely detached. It is his boss I know, not him.

“Taking my senior brother to give him an appointment is the least of my worries, I am not worried about any appointment. If he likes, he can go and take the entire Baba-Ahmeds and make them ministers. I don’t mind.”
