A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described as tragic and sad, the impending defection of a former Ogun state governor and Director-General of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign organization to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Fani-Kayode said it was nothing short of tragic for Gbenga, who was gunning to be Secretary General of Federation, SFG, had Atiku won the February 23rd presidential election to say he might be going to the APC.
Gbenga had only days ago, announced his decision to quit partisan politics and resign his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP – However yesterday, he revealed after a meeting with his supporters in Sagamu residence, Ogun state that they(his supporters) were pleading with him not to retire from partisan politics but lead them to the APC.
It is not yet clear if Daniel will yield to his people’s cry and move them to the ruling party.
Speaking about the defection plan, the former minister said;
For the 1st DG of Atiku’s Presidential Campaign Organization, PCO and his closest confidante in South West to dump the PDP and join APC before the conclusion of Atiku’s election petition is sad. For a man that was gunning to be SGF in an Atiku govt. to join Buhari after Atiku was rigged out is tragic!
