Former Ogun State Governor Gbenga Daniel Returns To PDPFeatured, Latest News, Politics Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
The former governor of Ogun state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel will formally return to Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday.
African examiner learnt that Otunba Daniel will declare for ruling party at the Aso Rock Villa, the same way governor Mimiko defected last week.
Daniel who ordered his supporters to join PPN in build up to 2011 general elections when PDP leaders in Ogun state denied his anointed candidate, Gboyega Isiaka the party’s governorship ticket.
It would be recalled that the internal crisis in PDP paved the way for Governor Ibikunle Amosun who run under defunct Action Congress of Nigeria to defeat PDP candidate, General Olurin and PPN flagbearer, Gboyega Isiaka in the governorship race.
Daniel who ruled Ogun state from 2003 to 2011 later joined Labour Party and promised to support president Goodluck Jonathan.
The Sagamu born politician has also vowed to work with others to dislodge Governor Ibikunle Amosun from government house come May 29, 2011.
Our correspondent gathered that Daniel would return to PDP because of Jonathan’s insistence that all his supporters must operate from the ruling party.
African examiner learnt that some aggrieved APC members in former governor Segun Osoba’s cancus will follow Daniel to PDP.
Political permutations in recent time shows that President Jonathan who yet to declare for re-election as President will surely contest in 2015.
