A former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and quit partisan politics.
According to Daniel, in a letter he addressed to the national chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, and dated March 14, 2019, he said that his decision to quit partisan politics was personal to him.
You will recall that Daniel was the director general of Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation before the former Vice President emerged as the presidential candidate of the PDP in the presidential election conducted on March 23, 2019.
In the letter, Daniel said:
“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”.
