The former Governor of Ogun State Olugbenga Daniel, who also served as Director-General of Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation has resigned from active politics but his supporters demand from him to lead them to the All Progressives Congress APC.
The supporters who cut across all the local government areas in the state asked him to, instead, lead them to the All Progressives Congress.
Daniel’s supporters who converged on his ‘Asoludero’ private residence in Sagamu GRA, held a meeting with him and prevailed on him to lead them to the APC, instead of abandoning them in “political wilderness.”
Daniel’s loyalists anchored their demands on the fact that they had worked towards the emergence of the governorship candidate of the APC in the state, Dapo Abiodun.
Some of those who spoke at the meeting included a former Chairman of Ogun/Osun River Basin, Iyabo Apampa; a former Director-General of Ladi Adebutu Campaign Organisation, Waliu Taiwo; former Special Assistant to Daniel on Youths, Ifekayode Akinbode; and senatorial candidate of the PDP, Jelili Amusan, among others.
They told their leader that they were not willing to entertain any excuse from him for quitting partisan politics.
They told him to forget whatever he might have personally suffered during his stay at the PDP, stressing that “life itself is full of ups and downs.”
Earlier, Daniel had informed the audience that his assignment in Ogun politics as well as that of Nigeria as a whole had been completed and was ready to quit politics “when the ovation is loudest.”
One of the party stalwarts, Akinbode led other members of the OGD Political Family to prostrate for Daniel, while women held his legs, pleading that he should lead them to the APC
