Daniel Bwala, then spokesman for Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the February 2023 presidential poll, has said that he informed his ex-principal before his meeting with President Bola Tinubu.
Bwala, who was a guest on Channels Television on Sunday, recently met with President Tinubu and declared his support to work with the All Progressives Congress, APC government.
“I informed Atiku Abubakar I was going to see the President,” Bwala said on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme.
“After I had seen the President, I informed him (Atiku) that I had just seen the President and he replied me that, ‘Thanks Daniel for notifying me’.”
Bwala, a rabid critic of Tinubu, also said his decision to now support the current administration, does not mean he betrayed Atiku.
“It’s absolute nonsense for somebody to say because I said I will support President Bola Tinubu therefore I betrayed Atiku,” he added.
He described as absurd criticisms trailing his sudden-found support for Tinubu whom he flayed during the 2023 politicking process.
Bwala was one of the very vocal and unsparing spokespersons of Atiku during the campaign that culminated into the last poll.
He also said the President did not promise him any appointment in his cabinet during the meeting.
