Daniel Bwala, a prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), expressed his commitment to backing President Bola Tinubu’s administration, indicating a readiness to rejoin the All Progressives Congress (APC) if necessary.

Having switched from the APC to the PDP ahead of the 2023 general election, citing concerns about the ruling party’s same-faith presidential ticket, Bwala shared his supportive stance during a closed-door meeting at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja.

“I told him today I am committing to play my part to support your administration, and I have no apologies to anybody,” Bwala stated, adding that, “APC is a party. President Bola Tinubu is my motivation; if supporting him will take me to APC, so be it.”

Known for his critical stance against the APC and the Tinubu administration, Bwala had previously advocated for opposition parties to form a robust coalition for a successful challenge to the APC in the 2027 general elections.

During an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on 2 January, 2024, he suggested that President Tinubu might secure eight years in office without such a coalition.

In response to the suspension of Betta Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Bwala commended President Tinubu for addressing reported infractions by ministers promptly.

He emphasized the president’s commitment to adherence to the law and swift suspension rather than protection.

Commenting on the recent announcement of a 60 per cent reduction in travel entourages for the Presidency and Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs), Bwala highlighted concerns about government bloat.

He praised Tinubu’s introduction of a policy to cut governance costs and mentioned that more cost-cutting measures were promised during his meeting with the president.

Bwala stressed that his support for President Tinubu’s administration was rooted in policy issues rather than personal grudges.
