Atiku’s ex-aide, Bwala tackles Peter Obi over new presidential jet for Tinubu


A former spokesman of the 2023 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Daniel Bwala has tackled former Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi over his remark on President Bola Tinubu acquiring a new presidential jet.

Last Friday, the House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence had asked the Federal Government to purchase new aircraft for Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima.

Reacting, Obi said it was insensitive of the Federal Government to demand for a new presidential jet when Nigerians are suffering.

Obi said: “At a time when our country is trending on the global media for facing its worst economic crisis, marked by high inflation, a falling currency, and widespread poverty, the government’s plan to buy new presidential jets demonstrates extreme insensitivity to citizens’ struggles.

“With rising insecurity, poverty, hunger, and homelessness, this decision highlights the disconnect that is apparent between the government and the people.”

Condemning Obi’s remark, Bwala challenged the former Anambra State governor to stop engaging in cheap talk and reveal how much he pays his workers amid the hardship Nigerians are suffering.

Posting on X, Bwala wrote: “At this time of hardship and inflation with rising cost of food items and transportation, how much do you pay your workers as salaries in all your companies? Please tell Nigerians. Talk is cheap.”
