Gbenga Daniel Quits Politics: How Ogun PDP Crisis Forced Him

The political crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State was one the reasons that made the former Governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, to resign from the party.

Daniel, in his letter to the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, dated March 14, 2019, also said he was quitting partisan politics.

In the letter, a copy of which also sent to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, Daniel said the decision to quit politics was personal to him.

Daniel was the DG of Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation before the former Vice President emerged as the presidential candidate of the PDP in the election conducted a few weeks ago.

“This is to inform you of my intention to resign from active and partisan politics with effect from today, the 14th day of March, 2019.

“My decision in this regard is entirely personal to me and having served in various capacities, including as Governor of Ogun State, I have resolved to immerse myself in some other vocations and take on some new challenges,” Daniel said in his letter.

However, reports indicated that Daniel was not happy the inability of the national leadership of the PDP to resolve the lingering crises rocking the party in his state.

Though he was said to be a staunch supporter of the Ladi Adebutu faction of the party in the state, at a point, he was said to have asked that the two factions be brought to a roundtable discussion on how to resolve the crisis. He advocated the sharing of political offices between the two factions.

A source, close to the happenings in the party, who spoke on condition, said, “Daniel wanted the crisis to be resolved. He was a supporter of Adebutu. But when Buruji would not let go, he wanted the national leadership of the party to come in and settle it. But unfortunately, it did not work.”
