Former Ogun State Governor and Director General of Atiku Abubakar‘s Presidential Campaign, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has quit active politics and the opposing party, in a letter written to the National Committee of the party in Abuja.
Otunba Gbenga Daniel, former Governor of Ogun State, has resign from active politics. He has also resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In his letter to the national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, Gbenga Daniel said he decided to leave the scene to “rejuvenate my charity based organization, the Gateway Front Foundation (GFF) which will literally continue to dispense succor to our people in need, address and assist in the areas of some of their health challenges. “I also plan on resuscitation of the non-partisan Political Leadership Academy (POLA) which I established some years ago as a platform of political education to our citizens.”
