PDP Suspends Former Governor Gbenga Daniel, 12 Others

Published

Otunba-Gbenga-DanielFormer Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has been suspended the Peoples Democratic Party in Sagamu Local Government Area over his alleged romance with the Labour Party and Peoples Party of Nigeria in the state.

Also suspended for what it called “anti-party activities” were 12 other members of the party in the area – Idowu Osho,   Gbenga Sadiku,   Yetunde Majolagbe,  Mabawonju Shitta,  Ayantola Lawal,   Raufu Jinad, Oguntade Adeleke,   Gbenga Buhari, Yinka Sotunde,   Gbenga Sokoya, Zainab Lawal and Olu Osho.

The suspension order was announced by chairman of the PDP in Ogun East Senatorial District, Chief Doyin Fakoya, in Isara, Remo North Local Government Area, shortly after a meeting of party members in the area.

Fakoya remarked that the party in the former governor’s Ward 12 placed the suspension on Mr. Daniel in order to restore discipline to the party.

“As of today (Thursday), I am the chairman of the PDP in Ogun East Senatorial District. I have got a copy of the letter that Otunba Daniel has been suspended. He was suspended by ward 12 Sagamu constituency 2,” he said.

Flanked by the party’s  chairmen  in Sagamu, Ikenne  and Remo-North LGAs,   Fakoya said  a disciplinary committee set up to look into the allegations  against Daniel  and the 12  others found them guilty.

He said, “Otunba Daniel was the one that brought the Peoples Party of Nigeria   to Ogun State; he is financing Labour Party at the moment. You cannot be in two parties at the same time; you cannot be in PPN, PDP  and LP at the same time.

“Otunba Daniel is like any other citizen that jumps into any political party; he was fortunate that he governed Ogun State for eight years. Is that the reason for him to be in three political parties at the same time?

“Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, the national chairman of our party, the PDP, said we should put discipline back into the party and his (Daniel) ward said it has suspended him from the party. So be it, he is not God; he has been suspended by ward 12 Sagamu constituency 2. I have got the copy of the letter, I have sent a copy of the letter to the state secretariat of the PDP and I have sent one to the press.”
