Former Ogun Governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel on Thursday registered as a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in ward 12, Isote in Sagamu Local Government Area.
Daniel and his wife, Olufunke, were registered by his ward chairman, Suji Olusegun.
The ex-Governor, who was in power on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for eight years, resigned from the party in March 2019 after serving as the Director-General, Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation for the 2019 presidential election.
He formally joined APC on Tuesday night at his Asoludero country home, Sagamu and was received by Governors Dapo Abiodun(Ogun); Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo); Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi); Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano) and Abubakar Sani- Bello(Niger).
Justifying his decision to join APC, Daniel said: “To all our people in Ogun State, I can assure that the decision to join the APC is a well- considered, well thought out decision.
“More than any time in the history of this country, what we need to do is to speak together with one voice.
“Our people have challenges, there is despondency in the land because of security challenges and if anybody is patriotic, this is the time for us to join hands.
“And for us in Ogun State, we have no other choice, we have a good governor and we are determined to support him to succeed”.
