Director General of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign organisation and former governor of Ogun state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ogun state to vote for Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressive Congress, APC during Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

Daniel made this known in a statement on Thursday following a court decision that affirmed Senator Buruji Kashamu as the governorship candidate of the PDP in Ogun state.

Daniel, a two-term governor who was rooting for Ladi Adebutu, who enjoys the support of the national leadership of the party, said the court decision has forced him to support Dapo Abiodun.

“You would 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,” he said.

Dapo Abiodun led members of his campaign team to meet Daniel on Thursday’s evening, hours after the former governor endorsed him.
