Former governor of Ogun state and a strong ally of Atiku Abubakar, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has dumped the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Buruji Kashamu and adopted the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Dapo Abiodun.
The Supreme court has declared Kashamu as the authentic candidate of the PDP ending the tussle between him and Ladi Adebutu .
Daniel said in a release on Thursday, ”
My Dear compatriots, You have noticed my studied silence in our local politics in recent times.
“I have busied myself with National politics having served the state for 8 years.
“I have also been very busy supporting the ambition of the son of our great Philantropist in Remoland to become the next governor of our dear state.
“You, however, would have become aware of the court decision yesterday which did not favour him.
“Going forward, I have directed all our structures statewide to cast all their votes on Saturday for Prince Dapo Abiodun, another bona fide Remo son despite current party differences.
“I, therefore, enjoin all to please go and cast your vote on Saturday for Dapo Abiodun in the overall interest of our people. With best regards.”
