2023: Atiku Abubakar explains his Dubai trip during campaigns

Atiku Abubakar

Daniel Bwala, a spokesman for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, has explained why his boss, Atiku Abubakar, has been in Dubai, UAE, during the current presidential campaigns.

Bwala made the revelation on Wednesday’s edition of the Morning Show on Arise Television.

According to him, Atiku used the holiday break to recharge his batteries and think things over.

The ex-lawmaker continued by saying that holiday destinations are a personal choice and everybody has the right to go wherever they like.

“We were the first political party to commence a campaign. Beginning with the campaign council’s institution and the campaign’s commencement, within a short period, we covered quite a number of places. And we have broken our campaign approaches to campaigns in rallies and campaigns in town halls campaigns with consultations.

“But you must also remember that we are guided by our calendar, not another political party’s calendar. And based on our calendar, you would have noticed that from the 21st of last month or thereabout, we had a holiday, and it was this period that he (Atiku) took time out to be away and reflect and refresh again.

“In campaigns, at least you retreat once in a while to re-energise, reinvigorate yourself and refresh yourself with ideas on how you can go forward. During holidays, anybody has the right to go anywhere in the world that he wishes to go.

“The campaign is constituted by not just the presidential candidate, the vice presidential candidate has been on the ground engaging. Then also we have campaign officers,” Bwala said.
