President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has appointed the spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, as Special Adviser On Political Issues in the Office of Vice President Kashim Shettima.
Dr Baba-Ahmed is the elder brother of Datti Baba-Ahmed, the running mate of Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 general election.
Baba-Ahmed made the announcement in a post on his official X account on Monday.
He wrote: “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 criticism when you can be useful in turning the country around. I’m honored and humbled. Please pray for me and Nigeria.”
