Teary LP VP Candidate, Baba-Ahmed Reacts Over Insults To Family

On Sunday, a visibly upset Datti Baba-Ahmed voiced his displeasure at the negative remarks made by political opponents about his family, notably his late father.

The Labour Party (LP) vice presidential candidate said he had done a lot to challenge false narratives about him and the party’s standard bearer, Peter Obi, during a live discussion of the effects of his political campaign on The People’s Townhall on Channels Television.

“When I joined the ticket, I impeached certain lies against him and I saw they were heading towards that. Particularly my good friend on the APC side, on the same level,” he stated.

“When people think they have money, they have power, and the sitting authority is theirs, there’s no limit. Someone has to tap them on the shoulder. I did it and I pointed a finger. You do it again – do one, I’ll do three. You know I’m capable of doing it.


“They’ve stopped. However, me and my family have been paying a huge price for my attempts to rescue Nigeria. They sent all sorts of people after me.”

The economist admitted that if his detractors had left him alone, he would have been “a lot happier.”

“But the thing that I was able to sort [out] with the [opposing] presidential and vice presidential candidate, I ended up suffering on a much lesser level.

“Thirty-five years ago, at least, our dad of blessed memory passed away. No one ever insulted him until I joined elections for presidency. This is not fair. It doesn’t happen anywhere in the world.

“You don’t insult people’s parents or their families. It’s a huge price for anyone to pay,” Baba-Ahmed said, evidently fighting back tears before momentarily excusing himself to step out of the hall, presumably to regain his composure.

Soon after, he went back to his seat to continue talking about the plans he and his principal had in mind.
