The Atiku's aide maintained that Fani-Kayode would be more impactful in the administration of President Tinubu, citing his previous experience as a minister of the federal government.

However, Bwala disclosed that he had never spoken with Fani-Kayode, popularly referred to as FFK, on the matter, adding that he has only met the former minister twice in his life time but expressed confidence in his ability to perform better than some ministers appointed by President Tinubu.
His tweet reads in part:
"Femi has worked hard enough like every other appointee, but aside from that, he being a pragmatic person with previous experience, will impact PBAT’s government."
