Gbenga Daniel has dumped the PDP, his longtime political party, for the ruling APC. 

Mr. Daniel, twice governor on PDP’s vehicle, will pick up the APC’s membership card on Tuesday in Sagamu, he said in a statement to friends obtained by Peoples Gazette. 

The decision was in time for Mr. Daniel’s eligibility to pick up the party’s membership before ongoing registration exercise expires later today. 

He will be receiving party chairman and Yobe Governor Mai Mala Buni and about three other APC governors as part of the political move, which would leave the PDP without a visible leader in the Gateway State. 

Mr. Daniel was the campaign manager for Atiku Abubakar during the 2019 presidential election, helping the former vice president to a drawn primary victory.
