One of Atiku Abubakar’s media advisers, Daniel Bwala, has claimed that President Bola Tinubu and the Yoruba don’t engage in “politics of bitterness.” Abubakar is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the upcoming 2023 election.
In response to Abdullahi Adamu’s departure as national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bwala made the following statement.
Bwala tweeted, “Life is meant to be taken easily, ohh. The former APC chairman who was quoted as saying, “I could write demand letters that filled his office and still not get my professional fees for what I worked for, simply because I left the party” is no longer the chairman, and he will now observe how I am paid my fees by those with whom I have maintained cordial and respectful relationships despite leaving the party.
The Yorubas, I must say, are masters of political diplomacy. We will start with PBAT Asiwaju, his loved ones, and his neighbors. It’s as if I’ve never been away when we catch up and make conversation. Recently, in open court before the judges sat, I was yelled at by Babatunde Ogala, SAN, “Bwala, you know you are on loan, and you must come back.” The entire room shared a good laugh.
“On my way to the gym this morning, I ran into Kayode Fayemi. I said hello to him as soon as I saw him. He then joked, “You really should come home.” No ill will. My Northern APC brothers cut ties with me after I left the party, and one of them even refused to cover my legal bills.
However, there are a select few of my northern brothers that are outstanding and maintain contact. Because power is fleeting, may God grant us the wisdom to view and engage in politics as politics rather than war.
