Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed has revealed why he withdrew from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship race in Kaduna State.
On Friday, Baba-Ahmed was picked as running mate to the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Hours later, in an interview on Channels Television’s Politic Today, he spoke
I withdrew from the PDP governorship race in Kaduna, because God has not created me as someone who will buy delegates’ votes.
And I made it categorically clear that I was not in search of a job. I was there to correct a very bad situation.
When it became apparent that it was necessary to buy votes, I said I just can’t do it. Respectfully, I withdrew from the race.
And I told them I will remain faithful and loyal to the party. But then it became clear they were afraid of me and I had no future in the party.
