Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed

Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed who is the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party, on Thursday claimed that his party was not a direct beneficiary of the #EndSARS movement as being speculated in many quarters.

The economist turned educationist who made this known while speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, submitted that the Labour Party was a beneficiary of a peaceful Nigeria.

He asserted that if voted into power in the 2023 general elections, the LP will bring about correcting the past mistakes of bad governance as well as effecting positive changes in the country.

‘While we are always on the side of good governance, we are against attrition, repression and all those,’ he said.

He went further to add that; ‘We are not direct beneficiaries of #EndSARS, we never wanted #EndSARS to happen. We never wanted any Nigerian whatsoever to be attacked. Accordingly, I cannot really say and be happy that we are direct beneficiaries.’

Baba-Ahmed also threw his back to some of the key events which happened in the build-up to the October 20, 2022 situation wherein some protesters were believed to have been shot by security operatives.

There was abuse of human rights, procedure. If some people interpret it as massacre, then yes. These are well meaning Nigerians who brought themselves to a public area and were attacked by security forces that are meant to be protecting their lives and properties.

‘The use of massacre is highly debatable but I can say for sure that there were abuses of procedure and civil rights violations,’ he said.

Africa Today News, New York reports that with the 2023 general elections barely four months away, the LP vice presidential candidate also highlighted his party’s vision for Nigeria.

According to him, the party will tackle insecurity, address corruption as well as fix the economy, while focusing well on education for the young Nigerians.
