Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has written a letter to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, intimating him of his decision to quit partisan politics.
According to Daily Trust, the letter indicated that Daniel’s resignation takes effect from March 14.
His Media Aide, Steve Oliyide confirmed the development in a telephone chat with the newspaper on Saturday.
“Yes, it true. He wrote the letter”, Oliyide said.
Daniel served as the Deputy Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (South) in the just concluded presidential election.
He however directed his supporters to vote for Dapo Abiodun, the All Progressive Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate for Ogun state Saturday’s election, which he eventually won.
“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,” Daniel popularly called OGD, said in the letter.
