FORMER Governor Gbenga Daniel has reiterated the readiness of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to win the next general election in Ogun State.
Daniel, who stated this at a unification meeting held at his Asoludero Court residence in Sagamu said the coming together of a rainbow coalition of parties that dissolved into the PDP has made the structure that now constitutes the party as the most formidable in the state which remains the party to beat.
“With the array of major stakeholders of Ogun politics in this Hall, it is glaring that the ingredients for winning elections are at hand and ready to go for power in 2015,” Otunba Daniel said.
He stated that all the aggrieved members in the state that had issues have shifted ground with a collective resolve to work in unity and provide a better alternative to the present government in Abeokuta.
He added: “A leader worth its salti s saddled with the burden of providing leadership and guidance towards finding a credible successor and that is exactly why we are on this mission to present a formidable platform that can wrest power from the incumbent and rescue Ogun State before it is too late.”
Former Minister of State for Finance, Aare Jubril Martins Kuye, thanked all for the loyalty shown Otunba Gbenga Daniel who, he said, warehoused his structure and nurtured it into a very powerful political machine in Ogun.
And ahead of Daniel’s declaration in the state capital, Abeokuta, preparations are in top gear to receive him formally into the PDP.
The party’s chairman in the state, Bayo Dayo, has said that the move would give victory in the2015 general election and turn around its fortunes.
Also, a PDP governorship aspirant, Jelili Kayode Amusan, disclosed that the new merger with Labour Party [LP] was a “welcome development that would give a resounding victory to the party and the ordinary people of Ogun State who have been yearning for change.”
Dignitaries present at the unification meeting included Chief Kolapo Ogunjobi, Chief (Mrs.) Iyabode Apampa, Senator Lekan Mustapha, Senator Tunde Osolake, Hon. Apostle Dave Salako, Hon. Razak Adewusi, Chief Alani Akinde, Otunba Ayo Osinubi, Are Tunde Alabi, Chief Sarafa Tunji Ishola, Hon. Ladi and Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka and former Deputy Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly and a serving lawmaker, Pastor Remmy Hazzan among numerous others.
Daniel had recently at the National Secretariat of the PDP in Abuja rejoined his former political party, at a grand occasion which had its entire leadership in attendance including the National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, Senate President David Mark, Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, Southwest Zonal Vice Chairman, Chief Ishola Filani, National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisah Metu and Women Leader, Ambassador (Dr.) Kema Chikwe.
