My people are begging me to lead them to APC- Gbenga Daniel hints at defection after ‘retirement’

Immediate former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel seems not to have truly retired from politics as there are stories emerging that he might soon join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Daniel had announced his retirement from politics and resignation from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus last week.

However, addressing newsmen on Sunday after holding a meeting with his supporters from the nooks and crannies of the state, Daniel said his followers resisted his opinion to quit politics.

He said the agreed with him to leave the PDP but went ahead to urge him to lead them to the APC.

“You know that this process is about leading people and what we have done today is to call all of our people across the length and breath of the state to subject our decision to a kind of plebiscite and, of course, you have seen what they have said.

“Basically, they said, well, they agree that I could resign from PDP. They said I must lead them to APC and they said I cannot retire from politics.

“That is the summary of what I heard and we have to now take a look at it,”  Daily Post quoted him.
