President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of the spokesperson for the Northern Elders Forum, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, as the Special Adviser On Political issues in the office of Vice-President Kashim Shettima.
Baba-Ahmed, who is reportedly the elder brother of Peter Obi’s presidential candidate running mate of the Labour Party in the last election, announced his appointment in a post on his X handle.
He tweeted that, “It is time to make it public that I have accepted the call to serve as Special Adviser (Political) to the VP.
“This is not the time for fence-sitting or criticism when you can be useful in turning the country around. I am honoured and humbled. Please pray for me & Nigeria.”
