The Labour Party in Nigeria has announced its preparedness to unveil Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, PhD, as Dr. Peter Obi’s running mate for the 2023 presidential election.
The event earlier scheduled for today, July 7, 2022, was shifted at the last minutes due to Obi’s travel hitches.
The 46 years old Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, is an economist, university proprietor and politician, from the prominent Baba-Ahmed family of Zaria.
He is the founder and Pro-chancellor of Baze University Abuja where the Baze University Hospital which is said to be the biggest private hospital in Africa is domiciled.
His anti-corruption activism drew him into politics where he served as a Representative for Zaria Federal Constituency from 2003 to 2007 and Senator for Kaduna North from 2011 to 2012. He was also a PDP presidential aspirant in 2018.
