Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged the public to stop associating him with his former spokesperson and lawyer, Daniel Bwala.

In a statement released by Atiku's media office, it was stated that Bwala had limited association with the former Vice President as he served as just a spokesperson for his presidential campaign from 2022 to early 2023 and had no other role aside from this.

The statement read; “Bwala offered his services and support to the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation as a spokesperson – and it was a position he held during the last presidential campaign.

“Subsequently, and after the election, the need for a campaign spokesperson has terminated, and Bwala has moved on with his career.

“This, therefore, serves as notice to the media and the interested public to desist from defining Bwala as an ex-aide of Atiku Abubakar.

“We duly urge the public to henceforth recognize, introduce, and define Daniel Bwala by his current vocation and alliance.”

Bwala has already expressed his willingness to work in President Bola Tinubu's administration. Bwala first visited the President in Aso Rock on January 10, 2023, and after that, he said he would be willing to work with the President in any capacity offered to him.

Weeks later, Bwala visited Tinubu in France where the nation’s number one citizen went on a private visit. He's now on social media defending the policies of the current administration.
