Former federal lawmaker and former vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last election, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, emphasized that demonstrating respect for President Bola Tinubu will not deter him from referring to the former Lagos State governor as a drug dealer.
Datti Baba-Ahmed made these remarks during an interview on Arise TV, following his participation in a world press conference in Abuja alongside the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the last election, Peter Obi.
While there have been reports linking the president to drug-related activities in the past, the Supreme Court has refrained from making rulings on such matters.
He stated, “Displaying respect for Tinubu does not preclude me from using the term ‘drug dealer’ in reference to him.”
Baba-Ahmed underlined the importance of Nigerians reclaiming their country and asserted their right to do so. He advocated for disarming Nigerians and redirecting their energies against the adversaries of Nigeria.
He added, “Sovereignty and power belong to the people! Democracy is the right of those who can exercise it.”
