The spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala, has said foreign trips embarked on by his party’s flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, have never been shrouded in secrecy.
Bwala stated that the former Vice President has always informed Nigerians of his whereabouts whenever he is out of the country.
He added that unlike the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, the whereabouts of Atiku is not unknown.
Bwala, who stated this during an appearance on Arise TV on Friday, said he is not like the spokesperson for the APC campaign council, Festus Keyamo, who could not give details of Tinubu’s whereabouts during an interview on Wednesday.
Bwala said Keyamo not being able to answer his principal’s whereabouts meant that it’s either there is no confidence in himself as a spokesman or that the APC is keeping secrets.
Regarding his principal’s possible shuffle between Nigeria and Dubai, Bwala said Atiku has always been straightforward with the Nigerian people.
He said, “He (Atiku) has never shrouded his journey in secrecy to say that he’s there or he’s not there. Two days ago, the spokesman for the APC was asked ‘where is your principal? He said he didn’t know where the principal was.
“They were not straightforward with the Nigerian people. Atiku was straightforward and at every given you time you call me and say : ‘where is Atiku Abubakar? I will tell you where he is. In fact, call Atiku, he answers, if he’s busy, he responds one way or the other.”
