Atikus’s media adviser, Paul Ibe, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
The statement read inter alia: “Malaye is a politician and a member of the 8th Senate, who represented Kogi West Senatorial district. He hails from Ayetoro Gbede in 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”.
It would be recalled that Dr Bwala decamped to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress (APC) last month over the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of a fellow Muslim, Senator Kashim Shettima as running mate.
