The Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniels, has defected from the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to All Progressive Congress, APC.
Revealing his defection to APC on Tuesday, Gbenga, who was the campaign manager for Atiku Abubakar, PDP’s 2019 Presidential candidate, said he had received mouth-watering encouragement to join the APC.
His defection to APC was needful following his support for Governor Dapo Abiodun; he also said it took a rapid turn after the national caretaker Chairman of APC with three governors visited him.
Daniels 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’s request to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about 3 Governors. While planning for the visit, Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me later today with another set of Governors. It, therefore, means that I have finally been ‘captured.’
“I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral. Thanks for your understanding.”
