Recall that former governor of Ogun state, Gbenga Daniel, had resigned his membership of the PDP on Saturday and announced that he was quitting partisan politics.
However, after the announcement, Gbenga Daniel made a U-turn when he expressed his readiness to join the All Progressives Congress, APC, after his supporters urged him to lead them to the ruling party.
Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, said it was sad that the former governor of Ogun state decided to dump the opposition party “before the conclusion of Atiku’s election petition.”Fani-Kayode also accused Gbenga Daniel of taking sides with President Buhari after Atiku Abubakar was “rigged out.”
Reacting to this yesterday, Daniel said he had not abandoned the former vice-president. Daniel also denied joining the APC, explaining that he told his followers to “join any political party of their choice.
According to him: “I have not, will not and will never abandon Atiku. Atiku is different from PDP. I have resigned from PDP and lost interest in partisan politics having put in about 20 years of my life in a thankless process.
“I will commit my God-given resources to help less privileged through my Foundation and will contribute sharing the body of knowledge through our not for profit Political Academy. That will be a thankful process.
“I will continue to support the political process in a non-partisan manner. I am clear with my position, without any ambiguity. There is no need to insinuate, speculate, extrapolate, anticipate or draw conclusions on my behalf.
“I did not expect such a simple personal decision can generate such national discourse and for that, I remain grateful to God. I am however most grateful to all my friends and well-wishers. The phones have not stopped ringing.”
