Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has spoken on his decision to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Gbenga was a front-row member of the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), leading the campaign team of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar who was PDP presidential candidate in 2019.
The former governor apologised to his former party for the late notification, saying the decision took a “speedy curve” with the request of the national caretaker Chairman of APC, Ma Mala Buni, to visit him along with three governors.
“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,” he said.
“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 to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about three governors.
“While planning for the visit, Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me later today with another set of Governors later today.
“It, therefore, means that I have finally been captured. I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral.”
