Why I am now supporting Tinubu -- Former Atiku spokesman

In a recent appearance on Arise TV’s Morning Show, Daniel Bwala, former spokesman of the now-defunct Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, opened up on the reason behind his sudden support for President Bola Tinubu.

Daniel Bwala in his appearance on live television, affirmed his commitment to nation building amidst Nigeria’s prevailing crisis, despite his previous affiliation with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and support for Atiku Abubakar.

Bwala, while acknowledging his past decisions, emphasized that he harbors no regrets for joining the PDP or backing Atiku. He reiterated that his actions were driven by personal conviction, and he accepts the outcomes, whether favorable or not.

Amidst the current challenges facing the nation, Bwala articulated his belief that holding elections in 2027 hinges upon Nigeria’s safety and security. He stressed the imperative of establishing stability before engaging in political processes.

Highlighting his shift in focus, the PDP stalwart revealed his decision to collaborate with President Bola Tinubu’s administration, recognizing efforts to rectify past wrongs.

Bwala underscored the importance of prioritizing national unity and development over partisan politics as he defends supporting President Tinubu and his administration.

Atiku disowns Daniel Bwala

“I have no regret going to PDP or supporting Atiku, I do my things based on conviction and at the end of the day, if it doesn’t work out, I accept my fate.

“The reality I have accepted now is that this politicking is gone and because of the crisis in Nigeria, the only way we can have a 2027 election is when Nigeria is safe and secure.

“I saw that this president I supported in APC is trying to ensure he rewrites the wrongs of the past administration.”

In his statement, Bwala emphasized the necessity of a functioning Nigeria as a prerequisite for political engagement. He echoed President Tinubu’s call for opposition parties to unite for the greater cause of nation building, signaling his alignment with this vision.

“When he said he wanted all opposition to come together for nation building, I felt it was the right time to look at nation’s building rather than politicking. There must be a Nigeria before we do politics.”
