Daniel Bwala, spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar campaign in 2023, says President Bola Tinubu did not offer him any form of appointment.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television on Sunday, Bwala said he is not supporting the Tinubu’s administration because of an appointment.

Last Wednesday, Bwala visited Tinubu at the presidential villa in Abuja.

Speaking shortly after the visit, Bwala, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he was committed to supporting Tinubu’s administration to succeed.

Bwala said if supporting the president would take him back to the All Progressives Congress (APC), “so be it”.

His visit to Tinubu was seen by many Nigerians as a political move to defect to the APC.

In the buildup to the 2023 elections, Bwala dumped the APC to join the PDP.

Asked during the interview if he would accept any appointment from Tinubu, the lawyer said he would “appreciate” an offer of appointment that contributes to the agenda of the president.

“People are even unfair to President Bola Tinubu; to be honest, he has never promised anything,” he said.

“If the president makes an offer of a position that I see will contribute to the development of his agenda, I would more than anything else appreciate it.

“But it is not the appointment that I am looking for to support him. President Bola Tinubu has not promised me anything.”

On whether he informed Abubakar of his visit to Tinubu, Bwala responded in affirmation.

“Yes, I did. I was so shocked when I saw people flying information that I sprung surprises on Atiku,” he said.

“I informed Atiku that I was going to see the president. After I had seen the president, I informed him that I had just seen the president, and he replied, ‘Thanks Daniel for notifying me”.
