President Bola Tinubu has appointed the spokesperson for the Northern Elders Forum, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, as the Special Adviser On Political issues in the office of Vice-President Kashim Shettima.
Baba-Ahmed, who is the elder brother of the running mate to Peter Obi, presidential candidate of Labour Party in the 2023 election, disclosed this on Monday in a post on his X handle.
He said he was honoured to be given the chance to contribute to nation building.
He tweeted, “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 fence-sitting or criticism when you can be useful in turning the country around. I am honoured and humbled. Please pray for me & Nigeria.”
