Gbenga Daniel, A Shameless Merchant Of Falsehood – APC


Ogun chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed former Governor, Senator Gbenga Daniel, over his latest interview, describing it as  ‘drama of absurdity and cocktails of lies’.

Daniel, who represents Ogun East, alleged in an interview that Governor Dapo Abiodun is still in dagger drawn with him for supporting President Bola Ahmed Tinubu during the APC presidential primaries of 2022 among other allegations.

But reacting to Daniel’s interview on Monday, Ogun Assistant APC Publicity Secretary, Olusola Ogunsanya, described the interview as an embodiment of falsehood and  blatant lies.

In a statement by Ogunsanya, APC stated that at no time did Gbenga Daniel make a definite position to support the President, as it accused him of double standards and pecuniary tendencies.

The party accused Daniel of supporting  the PDP and its candidates during the last general elections in Ogun State, alleging  that the lawmaker worked against the APC.

Ogun APC said: “Daniel, an outlier of outsider in the APC during the presidential primaries of June 2022 who was neither a delegate nor had a single delegate from Ogun State, claimed that he supported Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu against Governor Dapo Abiodun’s wish. What a shameless merchant of falsehood!

“To put it succinctly, Governor Abiodun, being a genuine leader and a progressive never worked against his party, APC unlike Senator Gbenga Daniel. And to give credence to his unflinching commitment and loyalty to the party, as soon as Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged the presidential candidate of the APC, he immediately deployed all his political machineries and structures to support him, stoutly resisting all the  gang-up within the fold spearheaded by Gbenga Daniel and his co-travellers. During the February 25 election, he won the State for Asiwaju Tinubu by a wide margin. 

“That was quite unlike Gbenga Daniel who worked against the APC and its candidates in the presidential and gubernatorial elections.

“We, therefore, implore the former governor to turn a new leaf  from  his now legendary dubious political  antics, act of  ingratitude and political  prostitution that have dishonourably  marked his political career over the years with matchless  notoriety and  infamy. These are indeed unbecoming of a man of his age.”
