A former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has officially resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Igbere TV reports.
In a letter addressed to the National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus, the ex-Gov said he was also retiring from ‘active and partisan politics’. The letter was sent to Igbere TV on Saturday.
Daniel, who was the Director General of Atiku Abubakar’s campaign organisation, said the reasons for his retirement were “personal”.
“This is to inform you of my intention to resign from active and partisan politics with effect from today, the 14th day of March 2019,” Daniel said in the letter, a copy of which Igbere TV saw on Saturday.
Stating that his resolve in this regard is entirely personal, the former governor said that he plans to give his attention to vocations and endeavours of life.
“My decision in this regard is entirely personal to me and having served in various capacities including as Governor of Ogun State, I have resolved to immerse myself in some other vocations and take some new challenges,” he said in the letter.
