Why I Parted Ways With President Buhari – Datti Baba-Ahmed
The Labour Party, LP, presidential running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed has revealed why he parted ways with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Baba-Ahmed and Buhari were once members of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change, CPC.
Baba-Ahmed was elected in 2011 to represent Kaduna North Senatorial District on the platform of the now defunct party, which also had Buhari as its presidential candidate.
Speaking in Kano over the weekend, the LP vice-presidential candidate disclosed that he parted ways with Buhari due to a change in ideology.
According to Baba-Ahmed, the President has lost his principles and bearings, hence he parted ways with the president.
Speaking in Kano, Datti said: “Over time, President Buhari lost his principles and bearings, the situation made it difficult for allies like myself to abide by his political philosophy and ideas.”
Baba-Ahmed stated that the Labour Party was making progress in the North, adding that they are trying to ensure the party wins the 2023 election.
