President Bola Tinubu has appointed Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) as Special Adviser On Political issues in the office of Vice-President Kashim Shettima.

Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed is the elder brother of Datti Baba-Ahmed, the running mate of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi in the February 25 election.

Baba-Ahmed, who disclosed his new appointment in a post on his X handle on Monday, said he is honoured to be given the chance to help contribute to building the country.

“It is time to make it public that I have accepted the call to serve as Special Adviser (Political) to the VP,” Hakeem said.

“This is not the time for fence-sitting or criticism when you can be useful in turning the country round. I am honored and humbled. Please pray for me & Nigeria.”

Abujapress reports that prior to his latest appointment, Baba-Ahmed held the position of Chief of Staff to former Senate President Bukola Saraki from 2017 to 2019.
