Datti Baba-Ahmed, the Labour Party’s Vice Presidential Candidate, expressed frustration on Monday that he had spent the last ten years trying to free himself from the activities of impostors.
Baba-Ahmed revealed that the situation worsened immediately after he was announced as the party’s running mate to Peter Obi.
On Monday, the founder of Baze University raised the alarm while answering journalists’ questions in Abuja.
On July 8, the 46-year-old economist was unveiled as the Labour Party’s vice presidential candidate. He previously served as Senator for Kaduna North from 2011 to 2012, as well as a member of the House of Representatives from 2003 to 2007.
His unveiling ceremony came barely 24 hours after the Director-General of Peter Obi Campaign Organisation, Doyin Okupe, announced his withdrawal as the placeholder for the party.
A saddened Baba-Ahmed, however, admitted on Monday that the fame came with its consequence, stating that his reputation was at stake over the activities of impostors who had opened several accounts in his name.
He said, “Impostors had, right from the inception of the various social media platforms, opened accounts in my name without my knowledge or approval. I wrote several complaints accordingly, which were never attended to satisfactorily.
