Why I Parted Ways With Buhari – Datti Baba-Ahmed

The Vice Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, has offered insight into the reasons he broke ranks with President Muhammadu Buhari, both of whom were once in the same political party, the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC).

Datti Baba-Ahmed, who hails from Zaria in Kaduna State, was a key member of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) and in 2011, was elected to represent Kaduna North Senatorial District under the defunct party.

Speaking in Kano, Datti held that over time, President Buhari lost his principles and bearings, saying the situation made it difficult for allies like himself to abide to his political philosophy and ideas.

He also appealed to Nigerians to disregard the outburst of the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El Rufai, who recently mocked the Labour Party (LP) that they could not mobilise 200 people in Kaduna State for a walk.

“Even in this room, just before I stepped in here, I had shaken hands with over 200 persons”, he said, adding that the governor’s outburst was quite unreasonable and unworthy of a serious response.

He assured that the LP was making steady progress in the North, saying that they have mapped out strategies to further swing the electorates to their side.

Datti-Baba listed massive education, awareness, and direct engagement with the people of the region as strategies that would lift their ranking in the region.

“We are reaching directly to the electorate, to make them realise that Nigeria is sick and Nigeria needs a medical doctor that is competent, Nigeria does not need religious and ethnic sentiment at this time”, he stated.

He invited Nigerians to look ahead to a new season of peace and security, a bond of national unity and a better economy that would usher prosperity for all under their leadership.
