“Are You Talking Back at Atiku?” Daniel Bwala Under Fire for Defending Tinubu’s Absence in Aso Villa

  • It was a blend of drama and defense for Atiku Abubakar’s former ally, Daniel Bwala on the social media platform X
  • Some Nigerians dragged the PDP chieftain as he stated that there is nothing wrong in President Tinubu governing the country outside the Villa
  • He further incurred the wrath of many Nigerians as he directed them to read the Section 5 of the constitution

Fox Nigeria journalist Esther Odili has over two years of experience covering political parties and movements.

Daniel Bwala, lawyer and public affairs analyst, has defended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s absence in the polity.

Bwala slammed for defending Tinubu, Shettima

In a post shared on his X account on Monday, May 6, Bwala maintained that President Tinubu could govern from anywhere in the world, noting, “he is in charge of the country”.

Recall that Atiku Abubakar, the former vice president of Nigeria, raised concerns over Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima’s absence from the presidential villa in a statement he signed and shared on his X page.

In reaction to Atiku’s outcry, Shettima suspended his trip to the United States.

But reacting to the development, Bwala, the PDP chieftain claimed the president and his vice don’t need to rule from Aso Villa.

Bwala tweeted:

“The president @officialABAT is in charge of the country and can govern from anywhere in the world whether the vice president is also in Nigeria or not. Aso Villa is not a block industry and the president is not a bricklayer. Read Section 5 of the constitution.”

Yahaya Bello: Daniel Bwala faults EFCC chairman

Meanwhile, Fox Nigeria previously reported that Daniel Bwala, had criticised the EFCC over the allegations against Bello.

Bwala, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential campaign committee in the 2023 general elections, condemned the “trial by media” approach by the anti-graft agency.

The legal practitioner who was reacting to the recent press briefing by the EFCC chairman, Olanipekun Olukoyede, accused the commission’s boss of conducting public discussions akin to a courtroom trial, where media outlets act as judge and jury.
