Former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, on Friday said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the 2015 general elections in the state.
Daniel stated this at a unification meeting held at his Asoludero Court residence in Sagamu, saying the coming together of some parties into the PDP made it the most formidable in the state.
“With the array of major stakeholders of Ogun politics in this hall, it is glaring that the ingredients for winning elections are at hand and ready to go for power in 2015,” the ex-governor said.
“A leader worth its salt is saddled with the burden of providing leadership and guidance towards finding a credible successor and that is exactly why we are on this mission to present a formidable platform that can wrest power from the incumbent and rescue Ogun State before it is too late,” he added.
Daniel had on Wednesday at the National Secretariat of the People Democratic Party in Abuja rejoined the party after dumping the Labour Party.
His formal defection was witnessed by PDP top shots including National Chairman, Adamu Muazu; Senate President, David Mark; Deputy National Chairman, Uche Secondus; National Publicity Secretary, Olisah Metuh, and the Women Leader, Kema Chikwe.
Mu’azu had told Daniel “PDP is your roots. I am happy today and sincerely welcome you back to your roots. The Peoples Democratic Party is a truly democratic party which is committed to widening and deepening democracy and shall so do everything possible to ensure equity, fairness and justice for all its members both old and new.”
