Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, the former vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has responded to Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka’s remarks criticizing Peter Obi’s fitness to lead Nigeria. Baba-Ahmed dismissed Soyinka’s comments as an attempted distraction from the real issues and argued that Soyinka’s fears stem from the potential positive changes Obi could bring to Nigeria.

During an interview on Arise Television, Baba-Ahmed stated that he could say things to Soyinka that would permanently destroy him, but he chose not to. He emphasized that intellect does not give anyone the right to insult others, citing Soyinka’s past criticism of late General Abacha.
