A former Governor of Ogun State and the Director General of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has agreed to lead his supporters to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Daniel, who announced his decision to quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and partisan politics on Saturday, revealed his latest decision on Sunday after a meeting with his supporters in his Aseludero Court in Sagamu, Ogun State.
Available reports have it that Daniel’s loyalists at the meeting with him on Sunday kicked against his decision to quit politics.
Led by his Special Assistant on Youth, Ifedayo Kayode, the supporters asked him to lead them to the APC instead of quitting politics.
They hinged their request on the fact that they had worked towards the emergence of Dapo Abiodun of the APC as the governor-elect in Ogun State.
Indeed a few days before the governorship election on March 9, 2019, Daniel had asked his supporters to vote for Abiodun instead of the candidate of the PDP, Senator Buruji Kashamu.
Speaking after the meeting on Sunday, Daniel said: “Basically, they (supporters) said I could resign from PDP.
“They said I must lead them to APC.
“And they also said I cannot retire from politics.
“That is the summary of what I heard.
“Now we have to take a look at it.”
Asked what his position is on the demands of his supporters, Daniel said: “What else can I say?
“My people have spoken.”
