Seeing Daniel Bwala, the presidential campaign spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar during the 2023 elections with President Bola Tinubu is one incident Nigerians had never expected.

In fact, it angered people. Now, many Nigerians have gotten a clear understanding of the saying, “politics is a game of interest”, as rightly put by Nigerians, “for politicians, anywhere belle face na front”.

Bwala has been under fire on social media over his visit to Tinubu at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja.

What even angered Nigerians most is that during the visit, Bwala declared his availability to work with the administration of President Tinubu.


He added that he had no apologies to tender to anybody over his visit to the President.

The Invitation

Speaking with State House correspondents after the meeting, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain disclosed that he came at the invitation of the President.


Bwala stated that if supporting Tinubu meant joining the All Progressives Congress (APC), he was ready to join the party and dump the opposition PDP.

He said he was particularly excited about the recent policy decisions the President has taken, which, according to him, demonstrates that he was about the people and not just protecting his team.

Bwala also commended him for taking the decisions “against certain ministers who allegedly were said to have committed the infraction”.

Bold Decisions

After the visit, Bwala took to his account on the X platform to express delight at meeting the President.


He wrote: “Today I was delighted to meet @officialABAT, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, (GCFR) in the Villa.

“I visited to show appreciation and support for the bold decisions he is taking to deal with the crisis confronting our dear country.”


Following the development, some netizens took to the comment section of Bwala’s post to berate Bwala for betraying his principal and former vice president.

“You couldn’t even stick to @atiku for one year after a failed bid to the presidency. Ha! Political jobber, political ashaworism, political stomach infrastructure. Shame!”.

More Reactions

@IamThatNaijaGuy said: “Atiku’s circle comprised individuals like Daniel Bwala and Reno O’mockery, who lacked genuine belief in his vision.

“Their allegiance rested solely on personal gain, leaving them scrambling for alternative opportunities as Atiku ceased funding.

“They are now desperately looking for new gigs. I knew PDP died the day they jettisoned their age-long tradition of zoning and allowed Peter Obi to leave the party”.
