A former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, had given reasons for dumping the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to the ex-governor, he defected to APC because of “too many options” offered by the party.
Daniel said this after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, alongside a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The two politicians, who hail from Ogun State, recently joined the ruling All Progressives Congress.
They were led to the meeting with the President by the Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the APC and Governor of Yobe, Mai Mala Buni; Governors of Jigawa State, Mohammed Badaru and Kebbi, Atiku Bagudu.
Daniel said, “Why APC? There are too many options at the party. One thing is sure that we are going through health and economic challenges, we must do less of political contestations and give support,” he said.
“One thing that is for sure, is that the entire world is going through challenges that are global challenges, economic challenges, health challenges. And when you are in a situation like this, as I usually opined, we should do less of partisan contestation, all of us must come together to support whoever is in power.
“And what we have decided to do is to come and give our support to the president so that jointly, we can continuously navigate the country, that is what is relevant.”
