Politics is not about Religion- Baba-Ahmed

The Labour Party’s vice presidential candidate, Dr. Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, and Peter Obi’s running mate has urged party members to avoid engaging in ethnic and religious politics.

While speaking to party members in Bauchi, Baba-Ahmed made the call, advising them to concentrate on respectable candidates free of religious and ethical prejudices.

Prior to the general elections in 2023, he warned the party members to avoid inciting racial or religious tension.

According to him, ” I am in Bauchi to encourage you, people, not to relent on the efforts you are putting in for the labour party in the country.

“Don’t be confused with religious and ethnicity issues; politics is not about religion; if it is religion, then we should allow the clerics to rule.

“God has already made us groups and different tribes across the world, so politics is neither religion nor ethnicity”.

According to Baba-Ahmed, if Nigerians avoided religious and ethnic politics, it would not only foster peace but also pave the way for forming capable leaders in the nation.

The ObiDatti running mate asked party members to go above and above in spreading awareness of the Labour Party’s platform and “ObiDatti mandate.”

Additionally, Mr. Hussaini Saraki, Chairman of the Labour Party in Bauchi State, promised to keep the public and party members informed about the qualifications of the presidential candidate and his vice presidential running mate.

He claimed that the Labour Party succeeded despite the opposition party and that Datti’s presence would inspire and raise their spirits.
