PDP Suspends Ex-Gov Gbenga Daniel, 12 Party Leaders In Ogun State
The gale of suspension of party leaders still ravaging the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the national level has trickled down as the Ogun State chapter of the crisis ridden party has suspended the immediate past governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel along with 12 other chieftains for anti-party activities.
The suspension was announced today by the Chairman of the PDP in Ogun East Senatorial district, Otunba Doyin Fakoya who accused the former governor of being a member of PDP, Labour Party, LP and Peoples Party of Nigeria, PPN simultaneously. He justified the suspension of Daniel with what is happening at the national level of the party where two serving governors have been suspended and the directive of the national chairman, Bamanga Tukur to instil discipline at all levels of the party.
Fakoya who said the suspension was carried out by Daniel’s own Ward 12 in Sagamu local government area of the state, did not however disclose the names of other affected party leaders . According to him “As of today , I am the Senatorial Chairman of Ogun East Senatorial District. I have got a copy of letter that Otunba Gbenga Daniel has been suspended , he is no longer a member of the PDP he has been suspended by ward 12 Sagamu constituency 2.”
He said the ward acted based on the report of a disciplinary committee set up to look into the allegations levelled against Daniel and others. He further explained that “Otunba Gbenga Daniel was the one that brought the PPN to Ogun State , he is now financing Labour Party at the moment. You cannot be in two parties at the same time, you can not be in PPN, PDP and Labour Party at the same time what are we afraid of.
“Otunba Gbenga Daniel is like any other citizen that jumps political party, he was fortunate that he governed Ogun State for eight years, is that the reason for being in three political parties at the same time. Alhaji Bamanga Tukur said we should put discipline back into the party and his 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 and I have sent one to the press”.
