Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has debunked media reports that he has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
A former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode quoted Daniel as saying this during a private conversation today.
Fani-Kayode tweeted, “My friend and brother Gbenga Daniel just reached me and assured me that, contrary to media reports, he has NOT joined APC. I am glad to hear that. I appreciate the clarification.”
The tweet, which was immediately deleted, came hours after Fani-Kayode appeared to blame Daniel for allegedly contributing to the loss of PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the February 23 presidential election.
Recall that several media organisations, including The Herald, on Sunday reported Daniel saying that his supporters were pressurising him to lead to join the ruling APC.
But reacting, Fani-Kayodetweeted:
For the 1st DG of @atiku's PCO and his closest confidante in SW to dump @OfficialPDPNig and join @OfficialAPCNg before the conclusion of Atiku's election petition is sad.For a man that was gunning to be SGF in an Atiku govt. to join Buhari after Atiku was rigged out is tragic!
