The Vice Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed has dismissed rumours that the party does not enjoy the support of northerners.
Speaking on Sunday during a Channels TV interview, Baba-Ahmed stated that Obi enjoys overwhelming support in the North, contrary to what political opponents want Nigerians to believe.
Baba-Ahmed added that the youths and women in particular are excited about the Labour Candidate’s plan for them and are fully in support of his ambition to lead the country in 2023.
He noted that Niger State is the only state in the North-Central that was yet to fully accept the Obi-Datti ticket.
Baba-Ahmed said, “North-central except Niger State which we are now working on. Most of north-central is Labour.”
“I have demolished all the roadblocks they set up in the north. It was mainly about the lies they told about the personality of Peter Obi.
“Now he is clean, clear, they embrace him in the north. We went to Kano, we went to Kaduna, we’ve been to Bauchi and ahead of him, I’ve been to 13 states just to prepare the ground.
“Youth in particular in the north are excited to meet Obi when the time comes.”
