Gbenga Daniel apologises to PDP over ‘sudden’ defection to APC

Former Ogun governor Gbenga Daniel has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Daniel was the Director of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) failed 2019 presidential campaign of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

Daniel said that he had been “captured” by the ruling APC, adding that he was sorry he did not inform his former party earlier.

“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,” Daniel said in a statement on Tuesday.

“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’s request to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about three governors.

“While planning for the visit, the governor also decided to visit me later with another set of governors today.

“It, therefore, means that I have finally been captured. I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral. Thanks for your understanding.”

The Daniel development came shortly after a former governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Osun State, Iyiola Omisore, also joined the APC.
