The Labour Party will on Friday unveil Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as running mate to its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Baba-Ahmed, who is in his 40s, is the Proprietor of Baze University, Abuja and Baba-Ahmed University Kano.
The unveiling of the vice-presidential candidate was initially slated for today (Thursday) at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
But 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.
Abure announced that the unveiling of Obi’s running mate is rescheduled for Friday at the party’s headquarters, Abuja.
