Otunba Gbenga Daniel, the former governor of Ogun State has decamped from the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC.
Notice of his defection was contained in a statement which he tendered apologies to his former party, stating that his support for Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, was a pointer.
With the defection, Daniel is expected to pick up the membership card of APC before the registration of new members closes today.
It is worthwhile to note that Gbenga was a front row member of the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, having led the campaign team of defeated presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku.
A full copy of the statement made available to newsmen reads:
“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 Chairmans request to visit me at Asoludero on Wed with about 3 Governors. While planning for the visit Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me later today with another set of Governors later today. It therefore mean that I have finally been ‘captured’
“I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news go viral. Thanks for your understanding.
