Tinubu Is My Motivation – PDP Chieftain Bwala Says, Hints On Defecting
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Daniel Bwala, has expressed support for the administration of president Bola Tinubu., noting that he would defect to the APC if need be.
Bwala who was the 2023 presidential campaign spokesperson of Atiku Abubakar, disclosed his support for Tinubu while speaking to newsmen after a closed door meeting with the president at Aso Rock Villa, Abuja on Wednesday.
“I told him today, I am committing to play my part to support your administration, and I have no apologies to anybody” Bwala revealed.
Explaining why he is now supporting Tinubu, Bwala said;
“Some of his Ministers that were allegedly reported to have committed infractions, instead of protecting them, he asked that the law should have its own course and suspended somebody without wasting time. That to me is impressive because it’s about the people.
“Secondly, there has been this outcry that the government is bloated and the rest, yesterday he introduced a policy that reduced the cost of governance and today he told me it is just the beginning. There are many more decisions of government that will reduce the cost of governance.
“What have we been talking about as citizens, if you don’t have personal grudge against someone, if it is a policy issue. When policies are going correctly…and what I’m saying apart from today that I’m talking here, you all need to visit my Twitter page. In the last few days, I have been expressing my surprise and appreciation to the President for the decisions he is taking”
Asked if he would defect to APC, he said;
“APC is a party. President Bola Tinubu is my motivation; if supporting him will take me to APC, so be it”.
Recall that Bwala had opined that even if Tinubu is given 30 years, he would still not perform well.
Bwala had on January 2, 2024, also opined that opposition political parties must form a strong coalition if they want to take over power from APC in the 2027 general elections.
