Tinubu Cracks Obi’s Camp, Appoints Datti’s Brother Special Adviser


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in what would pass for breaking into Sir Peter Obi’s ranks, has appointed Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, as one of his special advisers. Baba-Ahmed is the elder brother of Dr. Datti Baba-Ahmed, Obi’s running mate in the February 25, 2023 Presidential polls.

He was, also, a constant critic of former President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

The President appointed him the Special Adviser, Political, to the Vice President, Kashim Shettima.

The new appointee accepted the appointment and described it as an honour. He, also, said this was no time for “fence-sitting” criticism.

Said he: “It is time to make it public that I have accepted the call to serve as Special Adviser (Political) to the VP, @KShettima. This is not the time for fence-sitting or criticism when you can be useful in turning the country round. I am honoured and humbled. Please pray for me and Nigeria”.

Said a former ambassador who commented on Dr. Baba-Ahmed’s appointment and acceptance: “Politics is above sentiment and emotion. It’s a game of interest and calculation.

Congratulations Doc!”

Neither his younger brother, Peter Obi’s Presidential running mate, Datti, nor Obidientsvhave not commented,.
