The presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said he prefers to have a younger running mate.
He also clarified social media reports that he had picked Director of Publicity and Advocacy of Northern Elders Forum, Dr. Baba-Ahmed, as his running mate.
Obi spoke on Wednesday when he apprared on Arise TV Morning Show.
He said, “We’re talking to a quite number of people and Hakeem Baba-Ahmed is a capable hand. But I wish I can work with somebody who is more younger.
“I prefer younger people who have a lot to offer rather than recycling old hands. I want a competent person and I am building a formidable team.
“I want people who can look me in the eye and disagree with me during cabinet meetings. People who have their own minds and ideas.”
