The spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Hakeem Baba Ahmed has distanced himself from selling the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi to Northerners.
Baba-Ahmed said he can only sell presidential candidates who meet his own standard of a potentially good leader to Northerners.
He spoke while replying to a social media user who accused him of selling Obi to the Northerners.
The Twitter user had claimed that Baba-Ahmed would benefit from Obi’s presidency.
The Twitter user had written: “You need to understand that Dr. Hakeem Baba Ahmed undoubtedly benefits more when Obi/Datti wins the Presidency.
“However, he needs to sell obi to Northerners to achieve that, thus, he is asking South East leaders to condemn the attack so that he can tell Northerners that Obi can be trusted.”
Reacting, Baba-Ahmed tweeted: “I do not sell candidates until they meet my standards of potential in good leadership. There is nothing in it for me personally”.
