Atiku’s Aide Berates PDP Governor Over Comments Praising Tinubu



The spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation, Daniel Bwala, has criticised the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over a remark made by Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi State, regarding President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

News About Nigeria gathered that following a meeting with Tinubu behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Tuesday, Bwala posted a video of Mohammed updating State House Correspondents via X.

Mohammed praised Tinubu for stepping in to resolve the problem that was upending the legislative and the executive branch in Rivers State, claiming that this demonstrated his lack of bias against any political party.

The governor of the PDP went on to compliment Tinubu as a superb leader who refrained from using his huge stick to subdue or weaken the opposition party. He also lauded the judiciary’s professionalism in operating under the President’s leadership.

He said, “The President in his usual leadership position intervened, and then it will appear that there will be peace in that respect. He has shown that he is a president for everybody.

A president for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a president for the All Progressives Congress (APC) by intervening today and bringing succour and solace to the people of Rivers.

“On behalf of governors in states controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), I extol the leadership qualities of Mr President.

“I congratulated him and expressed appreciation that PDP governors who had gone through tribunals emerged victorious. We know that is leadership.

“We found this very good and going forward, we pledge that we are going to work with him to bring good governance to the people of Nigeria.

“There is professionalism in the conduct and the way and manner the judiciary is working under his leadership.”

Infuriated by Bala Mohammed’s remarks, Bwala insisted that certain PDP members had subverted the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakr, during the 2023 campaign, calling it disgraceful that the PDP does not presently appear to be an opposition party.

“It’s a shame that PDP does not look like an opposition party at the moment. I observed during the campaign how some of them undermined Atiku Abubakar. Instead of remaining in this kind of contraption, is it not better to…, I reserve my comment for now”, Bwala wrote.
