My relationship with my elder brother after I defeated him at poll – Ahmad Babba
The Katsina North senatorial election winner, Senator-elect Ahmad Kaita said contrary to insinuations, the outcome of the concluded election would not affect his relationship with his elder brother, Alhaji Kabir Babba Kaita.
The Senator elect, who was a member House of Representatives under the All Progressives Congress (APC), contested the election against his elder brother, Kabir Kaita, who was Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate.
But during a chat with journalists in Abuja he said the result of the poll would not stir trouble in their family, saying they were from an enlightened and politically-exposed family.
He stated that he came from a family of about 26 graduates out of 30 and we have been a political family historically.
He also said that his father, Late Ahmad Babba, was a member of the House of Assembly in Kaduna State and he was about to contest for the Senate when there was a coup.
“It has always been a liberal family and people can key into what they believe in.
“Our relationship as brothers remains intact. He has congratulated me and I have accepted his congratulations.
“His party even wanted to go to court but he said they should not.”
Senator Ahmad Babba also denied the allegations going round that there was vote buying during the election saying that“it was naive for anybody to think that he won through vote-buying.”
He said that his victory was as a result of his achievements as well as President Muhammadu Buhari’s integrity.
