Datti Baba-Ahmed, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential running mate, has revealed why he broke off his relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Former members of the CPC—the Congress for Progressive Change—included Baba-Ahmed and Buhari.
He was chosen in 2011 to represent the defunct party in the Kaduna North Senatorial District.
Baba-Ahmed asserted that his break awayfrom President Buhari was the result of a shift in ideology.
He admitted that he had broken up his relationship with the president because Buhari had lost his moral compass and direction.
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.”
The party, according to Baba-Ahmed, was moving forward steadily in the North.
He gave the assurance that measures would be taken to ensure that voters would support LP in 2023.
