Nigerians unearthed the video of Baba-Ahmed urging the eradication of homosexuals not long after he was named Peter Obi’s running mate.

” 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 lifestyle. This is me. As long as it doesn’t affect my interest. For me, we jave more critical issues to deal with Today and that is what I will be concentrating on”
