Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has opted out of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Otunba Gbenga Daniel had served as campaign manager of the PDP presidential candidate in 2019, Abubakar Atiku.
According to a statement, the former Ogun State governor apologised to his former party for the short notice, stating that his support for Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, was a pointer.
Otunba Gbenga Daniel explained that the decision took a speedy curve after request of the national caretaker Chairman of APC to visit him along with three governors.
The former governor 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 Chairman request to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about three 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.
