Former Ogun State Govenor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has highlighted the reasons why he decamped from the People’s Democratic Party to the All Progress Congress – the ruling party.
Otunba Gbenga Daniel, who served as the campaign coordinator for the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar during the 2019 general election apologised to his former party members for the short notice.
He revealed that he was motivated to join the All Progress Congress after two consecutive visits by the National Chairman of the Party and some Governors.
The former Governor also added that his support for Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State whom he supported during the last election also influenced his decision to join the ruling party.
Otunba Gbenga Daniel put his thoughts into writing via a statement.
Dear friends and 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 three governors.
“While planning for the visit, the governor also decided to visit me later with another set of governors today. 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.
He is expected to pick up his membership card today.
