“Dear former Vice president Atiku…You were never the head economic management team”
Atiku Abubakar’s presidential campaign spokesperson, Daniel Bwala was asked to react to that on Arise News Morning Show program.
Daniel Bwala reacted, listen to him,
“I respect Oby Ezekwesili, she is a very intellectual woman but everybody knows she is supporting Peter Obi…who is the chairman of the comic council, the Vice President, the head of the economic team and members of the economic team come with proposals, come and discuss policy issues, not a single one of them can bypass the Vice President and meet the president on the subject of the economy except if the president independently summon them.
The procedure is when you have deliberated, the vice president who is the chair will take it and discuss with the president on the findings.”
Bwala then said that between the chairman and the manager of an organisation who is more important. He said the chairman is Vice President and the head of the economic team.
