Baba Ahmed also reiterated that the conversation about the party not having a structure is a forgotten issue.
He maintained that the electorates remain the most veritable and reliable structure they can ever ask for.

“We have structure in Nigerians, people are our structure, what I saw in Sokoto, Adamawa, Gombe and now Borno is an indication that people all over the states are obedient.”
Labour Party will end insecurity – Baba Ahmed

“We will make appointments strictly based on merit and credibility if given the mandate. We are going to apply the law of the federation without fear or favour.
“What we don’t do and we are not apologetic is that we are not buying votes, we have shame and principles, we will not do it, we are not paying for it.”
