National Director Of Publicity Of The Northern Elders Forum Tenders Condition To Support Peter Obi

Mr.Hakeem Baba Ahmed, who is the National Director of Publicity of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed has given a condition to support the presidential ambition of the Labour Party, LP, candidate, Peter Obi, in 2023. He made it clear that he can only support the Obi/Datti ticket if they are the best candidates in 2023. He made this known on Channels Television.

 “I can only root for Obi and my younger brother Datti if they are the best candidates.“You know I’m working on a project with Northern Elders Forum, which gives all the candidates a level playing ground.” Baba-Ahmed also stressed that a lot of Nigerians might be disenfranchised due to insecurity. He noted that insecurity might prevent the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from deploying materials for the election.

“There is a huge problem that must be tackled decisively. If you look at the South East, IPOB, unknown gunmen, whatever are targeting people and moving freely.

“People are being prevented from voting because some people are burning INEC facilities,” he added. Sixty-eight days to the next year’s general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, says politicians buying Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to manipulate the elections are engaging in futile efforts. This was disclosed yesterday by the INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman of Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, while fielding questions on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme.
