Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the spokesman for the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has been appointed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the position of Special Adviser On Political Issues in Vice President Kashim Shettima’s office.
Dr. Baba-Ahmed is the senior brother of Datti Baba-Ahmed, Peter Obi’s running partner for the Labour Party’s nomination for president in the general election of 2023.
On Monday, Baba-Ahmed sent a message on his official X account announcing the news.
It’s time to announce that I’ve accepted the position of Special Adviser (Political) to the VP, he wrote. When you can help the nation turn around, this is not the time for criticism. I feel flattered and honoured. Please say a prayer for Nigeria and me.
