Former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, has reportedly dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Recall that Daniel was a former presidential campaign manager of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar during the PDP primary election in 2019.
Mr Daniel, in a statement he sent to his supporters, said the move is in the best interest of “our people.”
“Our cause is just, well-considered, not for any personal gain or aggrandizement but in the overall interest of our people. What we all need to do is to be active and proactive with our responses as there will be no time for briefing,” read the note seen by PREMIUM TIMES.
“We all know what has happened to the intractable problem in the Ogun State PDP over the last decade or more with no end in sight. We can see the unfolding crisis in the SW (South-west) and the national situation does not look any better. The situation in the country also calls for serious engagement across board.
“Not that there won’t be challenges in the other parties but all considered and the benefit of what I know, this is the best thing to do now. If the dynamics change at any time we will take it as it comes. Regards to all.”
