Ogun East Ex-Gov. Daniel shuns State APC chair, begins campaign. The former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, has begun his door-to-door campaigning in Ogun East as the party’s senate candidate.
Daniel is disobeying the APC Chairman in Ogun State, Yemi Sanusi, who had requested that all APC candidates hold off on launching their campaigns until the party issues additional instructions.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has requested that presidential and National Assembly candidates begin their campaigns as of September 28.
On October 2, however, the APC Chairman in Ogun forbade candidates from beginning their campaigns, claiming that the party wanted to coordinate its programs in Ogun with the calendar for the national election and that the State was in the process of forming its campaign committee.
Before creating a campaign schedule for Ogun, the campaign committee, according to Sanusi, will consult with the Governor, the Presidential Campaign Council, and the APC National Headquarters.
However, the party has refused to issue any new instructions since more than two weeks ago, and candidates continue to be “stagnant.”
According to DAILY POST, Daniel started his campaign trip on Monday, visiting all 10 council wards in the Ijebu North East Local Government Area of the State.
He said that while Nigeria was endowed with plenty of material and people resources, it still needed strong leaders to carry on the aspirations of its forefathers.
