Speak up for Tinubu, Bwala tells appointees, APC members, others

Former spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar’s presidential campaign in the February 2023 presidential election, Daniel Bwala has called on all political appointees of the Tinubu administration, members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and others to not shy away from openly supporting the president.

He said this in a post on his X page.

Bwala wrote: “If you are a supporter of @officialABAT, or you are his appointee in whatever capacity, or you are a member of his party @OfficialAPCNg or you are a believer of his vision, or a lover of Nigeria, this is the time to come out and speak for him in appealing to Nigerians to be patient in these hard times of reform agenda. There are enough facts and figures to support his efforts.

“Stop the ducking and dodging because of possible backlash, insults, and criticisms. True loyalty is defined by sacrifices and commitment. No glory without story; no gain without pain. We are all patriotic citizens in this effort together.

“The truth is there is no money to defend the naira and subsidy at the same time. There is an economic angle to IMF policy that advocates for “strong country ownership” meaning tele-guide the implementation to suit your local circumstances and not to be bullied by IMF; which explains why part subsidy is returned.

“Citizens are encouraged to call out any area of corruption and mismanagement in governance affairs, PBAT is ready to take action against any person found culpable.

“Companies and Organisations benefiting from tax breaks are called upon to contribute monies, food, and healthcare needs at these difficult times to the vulnerable of the society because the times are really hard.

“There is enough evidence about countries that had a somewhat downward trend because of these types of reforms and bounced back. We shall bounce back people; stay hopeful.”
