Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, have decamped from the People’s Democratic Party PDP to the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC.
Gbenga Daniel played a significant role in holding the siege of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as he leads the campaign team of former Vice president Atiku Abubakar.
Daniel is expected to pick up the membership card of APC before the registration of new members closes today.
In His statement made available to pressmen, Daniel expresses his displeasure as to how the notice was a shock, he could have brief the house earlier before the news got circulated.
He was believed and known to have supported Governor Dapo Abiodun in his quest for attaining the governorship seat then.
“I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral,” he said.
“Dear Friends & Colleagues, pardon my short notice in informing you of my route to the APC which as you might have suspected started with my supporting Governor Dapo Abiodun during the last election.
“I have since experienced an avalanche of encouragement to come on board. “However in the last 48 hours things took a dizzying speed with the decision of the APC National Chairmans request to visit me at Asoludero on Wed with about 3 Governors. While planning for the visit Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me later today with another set of Governors later today.
It therefore means that I have finally been ‘captured’ “I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news go viral. Thanks for your understanding OTUNBA GBENGA DANIELS.” The statement reads.
Former Ogun State governor said he will meet with the chairman of the caretaker committee of the APC and governor of Yobe State Mai Mala Buni on Wednesday.
Expected to be part of the meeting are governors Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State and Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State.
