Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Gbenga, who led the presidential campaign team of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, is expected to pick the membership form of the APC before today’s closing date for the registration.
The former Ogun governor explained that Governor Dapo Abiodun was instrumental in his decision to join the APC.
A statement announcing his decision obtained by VANTAGE NEWS reads, “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 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.”
