Former federal lawmaker and one-time vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, remains unswayed by calls for respect, insisting that he will continue to refer to former Lagos State governor and political heavyweight, Bola Tinubu, as a drug dealer.
Speaking candidly during an interview on Arise TV, Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed affirmed his position, emphasizing that he will not be deterred from using the term to describe Tinubu.
This statement comes in the wake of his participation in a world press conference in Abuja alongside the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the last election, Peter Obi.
“Showing Tinubu respect does not mean I will not call him a drug dealer,” he stated.
He added that Nigerians must reclaim their country, a thing he said was well within their right to do.
“Remove the guns from the hands of Nigerians and redirect them against the enemies of Nigeria; Nigeria must reclaim the country!
“Sovereignty and power belong to the people! Democracy is the right of those who can practice it.”
