How Gbenga Daniel, two-term former governor's defection will move, influence PDP and APC nationwide


A two-term former governor of Ogun state, Otunba Daniel, defection to the ruling party, APC and he is expected to take part in the party's registration and revalidation exercise to officially validate his defection and membership of the party.

Recall Daniel was the campaign manager of former vice president Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 general election and a strong pillar of the PDP in the southwest.

As PDP continues to count its loss, Legit has highlighted some of the effects of Gbenga Daniel's defection in Ogun.

For PDP it is a huge loss For PDP, it is no doubt that the party has arguably lost its most influential chieftain, poster boy, arbitrator and gladiator to the opposition side.

Otunba Daniel has been a powerline and one of the financial engines of the opposition party, having served as governor between May 2003 - May 2011, with numerous businesses in the state to prove his solid influence.

His defection means the party structure in Ogun state has partly collapsed, and there is a clear reality of the opposition party's hope of returning to power being dashed again in the 2023 governorship election.

For APC, it is added advantage - and trouble
The APC has been largely reaping from the recent massive defection from the PDP, meaning that the party is receiving confidence and hope of retaining power in 2023.

And of course, Daniel's defection means PDP is a party to beat as APC does not have a problem with the state come next election.

It should be noted that all the governors (Aremo Segun Osoba, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Senator Ibikunle Amosun) who have governed Ogun state since 1999 are now in APC.

Besides, the state governor, Dapo Abiodun, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo are also in the ruling party. All APC needs is to dance to the beautiful tunes.
