The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has appointed Senator Dino Melaye and former Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Dr Daniel Bwala as spokespersons.
Bwala dumped the APC last month over APC candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of a fellow Muslim, former Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima as running mate.
Bwala last week joined the opposition party, the PDP.
Atiku, in a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, Thursday, appointed the duo as his spokesperson for the upcoming presidential campaign.
According to the statement, the appointments take immediate effect.
The statement partly read, “Malaye is a politician and a member of the 8th Senate, who represented Kogi West Senatorial district. He hails from Ayetoro Gbede in the Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State.
“Bwala, on the other hand, is a legal practitioner, politician and public affairs analyst. He hails from Adamawa State”.
