The Labour Party (LP) will on Friday unveil Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as the running mate to Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the party in the 2023 elections.
Kaduna State-born Senator Baba-Ahmed is the proprietor and Pro-Chancellor of Baze University, Abuja and Baba-Ahmed University Kano.
The unveiling of the vice-presidential candidate was initially slated for Thursday to be done by the LP’s presidential candidate at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
However, the National Chairman of the party, Barrister Julius Abure, said that the ceremony could not go ahead as planned because the Mr. Obi, who had traveled to Maiduguri and expected back in Abuja Thutsday afternoon, had his return flight canceled.
Abure announced that the unveiling of Mr. Obi’s running mate has therefore been rescheduled for Friday, July 8 at the party’s Abuja headquarters.
