Bwala also claimed that the said politician wanted the role of the Minister of Justice and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), but was later appointed as a Minister of State for Labour.

He wrote: “He wants to ambush Tinubu to give him a substantive ministerial role, hence his argument that Buhari appointing him as minister of state is unconstitutional.
