The Director-General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, South, Gbenga Daniel, has endorsed the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dapo Abiodun.
Punch reports that, Daniel, a former Ogun state governor and PDP chieftain, speaking on Thursday, during a meeting with the APC candidate and other political bigwigs at his house in Sagamu, asked all his supporters to back Dapo Abiodun in the governorship election on Saturday.
Abiodun’s aide, Emmanuel Ojo, confirmed the development to Punch’s correspondent on the telephone. He said:
Otunba Gbenga Daniel collapsed his political structure and asked that all his supporters should back Dapo Abiodun. He said of all the governorship candidates on the ground, the APC candidate is the most qualified, competent, mature and suitable for the position. He said they also shared the same political principles and beliefs.
This happened at a meeting in Sagamu where Prince Dapo Abiodun was invited to. I was also there. There were a lot of top political personalities in Ogun State at the meeting.
Meanwhile, the outgoing governor, Ibikunle Amosun of the APC has since endorsed Allied Peoples Movement, APM’s Adekunle Akinlade.
