As part of his nationwide campaign tour on his ambition to become the next National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Otunba Gbenga Daniel, again on Saturday visited a former President of Nigeria, General Ibrahim Babangida at his home in Minna, Niger State.

Daniel had earlier visited the former President in his house prior to embarking on the nationwide tour during which Babangida described Daniel as his "Chairman-in-waiting" and urged other members to support his candidature.

The latest visit was however part of Daniel’s determination to visit the party leaders and delegates across the nation on his ambition.

While receiving the aspirant and his entourage, Babangida expressed delight with Daniel's campaign team as they criss-cross the length and breadth of the country and prayed for the success of what he described as an unprecedented campaign efforts.

The former President reiterated his earlier position that Daniel possesses all the qualities the party needed in a National Chairman, adding that he would bring in a fresh breadth of air into the party if elected into the office.

Babangida urged the party members to see Daniel's ambition as selfless, while praying for his success at the National Convention, which holds in Abuja on December 9, 2017.

In his response, Daniel promised to do his best to uplift the party and restore its lost glory, if voted into office as its next National Chairman.

He emphasised that time had come to rescue the nation and its people from the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government, which he said had not offered the people anything good in terms of leadership and development since it got to office in 2015.

The former Governor of Ogun State was joined on the campaign tour by a three-time former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Interior and Sports, Alhaji Samaila Sambawa; a former Minister of State for Works, Alhaji Saleh Shehu, a former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Jelili Kayode Amusan; and several others.

While informing the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi through a letter dated October 31, 2017, Daniel said that he would be going on the tour ahead of the National Convention.

According to him: “The purpose of the tour is to sensitise the people about the efficacy of our party while also meeting the delegates and leaders of our party nationwide.

“The tour will commence in Sokoto where we will pay a courtesy call on the Sultan and seize the opportunity to celebrate with him on the 11th anniversary of his coronation.”

Daniel has since visited several states in the north, where he was warmly received by leaders and thousands of members of the party, who all promised to support him on his ambition.
