The Labour Party’s vice presidential candidate is optimistic about the chances of his party in the 2023 presidential election.
Labour Party’s vice presidential candidate Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed believes the massive support the party is getting on social media will translate into actual votes in the 2023 presidential election.
Senator Baba-Ahmed made the disclosure while responding to questions on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Friday, July 8, same day he was unveiled as the running mate of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi.
“Go and start looking at the bookings of major European airlines into Nigeria. Not during Christmas time. After Christmas time. Late January to third week of February. You will see that they are getting full,’’ the former House of Representatives Member said.
“Unusually. I’m into the business of data and statistics. And I decided to particularly look at that. This tells you that social media is going to vote. Even if they are in Antarctica, one person is there and he mobilises 100,000 people here to go out and vote. It has succeeded.’’
Baba-Ahmed went further to state that it is no longer business as usual, insisting that the “bank balance of any big politician is starting to be irrelevant. Those of us who sweated for the little that we have, we are spending it very wisely and carefully. Those of them who made it from government, who will just open the coffers and bring it out; they will continue to splash it and it will continue to mean less and less.”
