Unveiling Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as Labour Party Vice presidential candidate in Abuja.

The unconventional manner  Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi adopted in unveiling his Vice presidential running mate, Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed was a real surprise to a majority of Nigerians because the novel way was unprecedented. 






The gathering was devoid of the fanfare of old, whereby heavily decorated religious figures from both the Islamic and Christian faiths would start every public occasion with prayers.





In the brisk unveiling, Peter Obi who called Yusuf Datti his junior brother, “because I am older”, went on to list the qualities he noticed in his running mate.

The occasion started with the singing of the national anthem.


For the opening prayer, the Labour Party gathering sang the second stanza.

Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause
Guide our leader’s right
Help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign”.

They all sang it with great gusto, looking like men and women set to start work or hit the ground running from day one if they win.
