Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has clarified his relationship with Daniel Bwala.
WesternPost reports that Bwala served as a spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign in the last presidential election.
In a statement issued by his media office on Tuesday, Atiku clarified that Bwala’s association with him was limited to serving as a spokesperson for his presidential campaign during the period of 2022 to early 2023.
He emphasized that Bwala was not, and has never been his aide beyond this specific role.
“It is important that the media and the general public take corrective note of defining Mr Daniel Bwala as an aide to His Excellency Atiku Abubakar.
“Bwala offered his services and support to the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization as a spokesperson – and it was a position he held during the last presidential campaign,” the statement read in part.
