(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, has left the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Daniel, who was the campaign manager for PDP’s former Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, disclosed this on Tuesday.
According to him, his decision to defect was due to his support for Governor Dapo Abiodun, saying that things happened quickly with the request of the national caretaker Chairman of the APC visiting him along with three governors.
He 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.”
