Tinubu govt has failed Nigerians – Yusuf Baba-Ahmed

We will head to court, says Datti Baba-Ahmed

Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, the former vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party said the Tinubu-led administration has failed in its campaign promises given the current economic state of the country.

He said under the watch of the government, insecurity has worsened, the economy has declined and corruption is already on top gear.

Baba-Ahmed added that the Tinubu administration has thrown Nigerians into untold hardship.

“Where are the campaign promises of the ongoing administration, what have they achieved?” Datti-Ahmed questioned.

“Look at the worsening insecurity, the declining economy and aggravated corruption. There’s probably a grand scheme to dismember Nigeria into six possibly autonomous zones because the only way to explain these failures is to carry them and run away,” he said.

Meanwhile, he said his party won the general election and could have done things differently.

He explained that the election took a dramatic turn when the results collation changed from iRev to manual, thereby putting the outcome of the election in favour of the ruling party.

“I won’t stop saying it, Obi and I won the 2023 general election,” Datti-Ahmed said.

“The iRev was switched off, results were returned manually, the Constitution was twisted, and the meaning of English language was changed,” he added.

Speaking on the current discontent within the Labour Party on Arise TV, the former senator said the party is doing better than some other opposition parties.

“Labour Party is in better state today than CPC was in 2015,” Datti-Ahmed said.
