Peter Obi’s Running Mate, Datti Speaks On His Elder Brother, Hakeem Working For Tinubu’s Govt

Posted by Thandiubani on Tue 07th Nov, 2023 -

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.

The vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Datti Baba-Ahmed has replied questions about his brother working for President Bola Tinubu.
Reacting on Monday, Datti said he is not bothered that his brother, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed was appointed as Special Adviser on Political Matters to Vice-President, Kashim Shettima.
Recall 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.”
