Baba-Ahmed has told #Obidients not to be distracted by the BBnaija reality show ahead of the 2023 elections.
Glamtush reports that Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, running mate of the Party Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has urged the party’s supporters not to get distracted by this year’s Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), Tv show.
This online platform recalls that season 7 of the television reality show kicked off yesterday, Saturday, July 23.
The host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, unveiled this year’s season tagged “Level Up” at a colourful ceremony on Saturday night.
Reacting moments after the show went live, Datti Baba-Ahmed called for focus ahead of next year’s general elections, which he described as a ‘battle’.
“Dear #Obidients please don’t be distracted with the new season of the Tv show #BBNaija we have a battle ahead of us,” the economist tweeted.
The Labour Party has a huge following on social media. Supporters of Obi are known as #Obidients.
Youths are usually engrossed in the BBNaija shows which comes up on a yearly basis. Since Labour Party is enjoying huge support mostly from the youth who are on social media, it’s only apt that Labour Party’s vice-presidential candidate will ask them not to get distracted with BBNaija.
