Otunba Gbenga Daniel (OGD), the former Ogun State Governor, has been received formally into the All Progressives Congress (APC) by five governors of the party, who were led by their colleague in the state, Dapo Abiodun.
They include, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Abubakar Bello of Niger, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi as well as Bello Matawalle of Zamfara, were in Ogun State for a peace meeting over the killing of Yewa people by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
However, after the meeting which took place at the Obas Complex in Okemosan, Abeokuta, the governors headed for the Asoludero residence of Daniel in Sagamu, to formalise his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) into the APC.
During the event, the APC governors, in their separate remarks, expressed happiness that the two-term former governor is joining the ruling APC.
Daniel in his response, said his decision to join the APC was a well-considered one.
He further stated that anybody who is patriotic at a time like this would join the government to find a solution to the many challenges facing the nation.
He appreciated the governors for coming to Ogun State in order to restore peace and normalcy to all troubled areas.
At the occasion, the governor of Kebbi State presented a broom to Daniel to symbolise his defection to the ruling party.
