The Director-General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Daniel, former director-general of Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, says his supporters have been pleading with him to lead them to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former Governor of Ogun State made this known 24 hours after he resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and announced that he was quitting partisan politics.
On Sunday, he invited his supporters to a meeting at his Sagamu residence and they reportedly told him that they were satisfied with his decision to leave PDP but he should lead them to the ruling party.
Daniel played a significant role in the emergence of Dapo Abiodun, governor-elect of Ogun, having directed his supporters to work for Abiodun, who contested under the APC.
Abiodun defeated Adekunle Akinlade, his Allied Peoples Movement (APM) rival, with less than 20,000 votes. Abiodun had expressed gratitude to Daniel whom he held a private meeting with moments after Daniel announced that he had left PDP.
In his letter or resignation to Uche Secondus, the national chairman of the PDP, Daniel recollected how he toured the country canvassing votes for Atiku.
