Daniel Bwala Gives Only Condition to Withdraw Support for Tinubu


Former spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar/Ifeanyi Okowa presidential campaign in the 2023 presidential election, Daniel Bwala has revealed what would make him stop supporting President Bola Tinubu.


According to him, he will stop supporting Tinubu if he goes against the constitution of Nigeria and democratic Ideology.


He said this during an interview on Arise TV on Wednesday, insisting he had a good time with Atiku Abubakar but had to shift his support to Tinubu when it was clear the presidential election was over.


Bwala who was a strong supporter of former vice president Atiku, said, “It was nice that I supported former vice president Atiku and for the period I supported him, I gave my all but when I made a decision to support President Tinubu, it is just owing to the fact that the elections are over.

“We all know the problem we are in and if you’re privileged to have an attention of somebody who is now the sitting president who didn’t meet you in the first place but he felt that you have something to offer and said ‘Come and be a part of what we are doing in this government, let us see how you support good governance’, I feel it’s an honour.

“And don’t forget I was Asiwaju’s loyalist before. I changed party to Atiku, it is not a situation of going back to somebody you don’t know, I have always believed in him.

“The only thing that will make me withdraw my support for President Bola Tinubu is if he goes against the constitution of Nigeria and goes against democratic ideology but I do not see that happening because President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is on course.

“He is redefining the structure of our foundation and economy and I know that the decisions are hard, but they are definitely decisions that are going to work at the end of the day.”
