“That to me is impressive because it’s about the people.
Secondly, there has been this outcry that the government is bloated and the rest. Yesterday, he introduced a policy that reduced the cost of governance and today he told me it is just the beginning.
“There are many more decisions of government that will reduce the cost of governance.
“What have we been talking about as citizens, if you don’t have personal grudge against someone, if it is a policy issue. When policies are going correctly…and what I’m saying apart from today that I’m talking here, you all need to visit my Twitter (X) page.
“In the last few days, I have been expressing my surprise and appreciation to the President for the decisions he is taking. So, this is not about political party. And you need to know that like I said, I was with him before I left.

On whether he was set to defect to the ruling APC, Bwala said “APC is a party, President Bola Tinubu is my motivation, if supporting him will take me to APC, so be it!”
