Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has welcomed a former Governor of the state Otunba Gbenga Daniel to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Receiving the former chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dapo Abiodun hailed him as a true progressive.

He said, “Today, we had the privilege of receiving into the All Progressives Congress, APC, former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, OGD.

“OGD is indeed a true progressive, considering the unreserved support His Excellency has given this present Administration in the pursuit of a better society for the good people of Ogun State.

“We look forward to the positive vibe of the former Governor and innovative thinker as we jointly build the future of our dear State together.”

Gbenga Daniel announced his defection to the ruling party yesterday, saying, ”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 Chairman’s request to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about 3 Governors. While planning for the visit, Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me later today with another set of Governors. 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.”
