Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar’s spokesperson in the last presidential election, Daniel Bwala, has given reasons why he dumped him and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Bwala dumped Tinubu to pitch his tent with Alhaji Atiku months into the 2023 general elections. However, he met the President on Wednesday in Aso Rock. After the meeting, he told journalists that he had been impressed by the policy decisions that the president has taken in the last few days, citing the suspension and prosecution of Betta Edu and the reduction in the cost of governance.
Bwala still criticised President Tinubu last month, but after the meeting on Wednesday, he said he made the U-turn because “At these difficult times, what we need is to throw our weight behind the president and see how we can navigate because these are difficult times in this country.”
The lawyer said he owes no one apologies for his visit to Tinubu, adding he would join the APC in supporting the President if the need arises.
