The Labour Party will on Friday unveil Datti Baba-Ahmed as the running mate to their presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
The unveiling of Datti Baba-Ahmed was initially slated for Thursday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja but the National Chairman of the party, Barrister Julius Abure, said the ceremony was postponed because Obi, who travelled to Maiduguri and was expected back in Abuja Thursday afternoon, had his flight cancelled.
Obi on Thursday attended the ordination of Most Rev. John Bogna Bakeni as first indigenous Bishop of Maiduguri.
Abure announced that the unveiling of Obi’s running mate is rescheduled for Friday at the party’s headquarters, Abuja.
Senator Baba-Ahmed, who is in his 40s is the Proprietor of Baze University, Abuja and Baba-Ahmed University Kano.
