Bwala stated that Obi has no political history of assisting individuals in achieving political prominence in an interview with The Cable on Saturday. He claimed that Obi has not yet established his identity in politics and that he cannot be considered a political leader.

Bwala who was a spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council in the 2023 election compared Peter Obi to the former American President Donald Trump. He said that however, the difference is that while Donald Trump is the one controlling his base, Peter Obi is being controlled by his own base.

He said, “He keeps saying he is the new opposition leader in Nigeria. He thinks opposition is trolling, and that is why people call him the social media president. Trolling is not opposition. While he is trying to copy the model of Donald Trump, he falls short of even the extremist policies of Trump.

“While Trump controls his base, Obi is controlled by Obidients. If Trump asks his supporters to move, they move. But here, if Peter Obi wants to say anything and the Obidients ask him not to talk, he will be quiet.”

Speaking further, he said that opposition is about providing better policies, and that if the government comes up with something positive, the opposition will also commend the government for it.

Bwala also reacted to the controversy surrounding the allegations of budget padding in the National Assembly. He said that when President Bola Ahmed Tinubu presented the budget, the National Assembly added N1.2 trillion to it.

He said that the National Assembly has the right to do so if they realize that the work that needs to be done requires more funding. He added that they also have the power to subtract from the budget if they find out that the budget is overblown. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
