"I Have Finally Been Captured" - Gbenga Daniel Says As He Joins APC From PDP

Atiku’s campaign manager, Gbenga Daniel, decamps from PDP to APC
Former governor of Ogun State, and Atiku's campaign manager, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has announced joining the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), saying that the party has finally succeeded in capturing him.

Recall that Gbenga Daniel led the presidential campaign team of the defeated People democratic Party (PDP) under the candidacy of Atiku Abubakar in 2019.

Gbenga is expected to pick up the membership card of APC before the registration of new members closes today. 

In a statement, Daniel apologised to his former party for the short notice, stating that his support for Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, was a pointer. 

He explained that the decision took a speedy curve with the request of the national caretaker Chairman of APC to visit him along with three governors.

The statement reads;

“I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral.

“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 Chairmans request to visit me at Asoludero on Wed with about 3 Governors. 

"While planning for the visit Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me later today with another set of Governors later today. 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 OTUNBA GBENGA DANIELS.” 

According to Vanguard, Gbenga will meet with the chairman of the caretaker committee of the APC and governor of Yobe State Mai Mala Buni on Wednesday.

Expected to be part of the meeting are governors Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State and Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State.
