Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi has reacted to a video of his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, calling for the death of LGBTQ members.
Baba-Ahmed was a senator when the anti-gay bill was being debated in the Senate.
While contributing during plenary in 2014, Baba-Ahmed opined that such ‘’elements’’ should be killed in the society.
The video resurfaced on social media and went viral shortly after Obi unveiled him as his running mate.
During a recent interview on a radio station, Obi was asked to share his thoughts on Baba-Ahmed’s comment.
He said; ”2014 to today is about eight years. But that not withstanding, we all have made comments that we believe in, and it is allowed. I, for one, is tolerant of people’s views and their lifestyles. This is me as long as it doesn’t affect my interest. For me, we have more critical issues to deal with today, and that is what I will be concentrating on.”
