2023: Vote for only those who can lead well, Daniel urges electorate

...As he begins ward to ward Ogun East senatorial campaign tour 

By Our Correspondent

Former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has urged electorate to vote for only those who can engender good governance in the 2023 general elections.

He stated this during his ward to ward tour of Ogun East senatorial district which he started on Monday, October 17, as the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the district.

 He made the statement while responding to those who spoke at the event in Ijebu North East Local Government Area of the state, where he started the tour.

 The speakers had eulogised Daniel and expressed confidence that he would provide quality representation at the hallowed chamber of the National Assembly, if elected senator.

They recalled Daniel’s developmental strides at the grassroots level, when he was governor of Ogun State. And added that his track records were capable of endearing him to the electorate.

The mammoth crowd relived Daniel’s outstanding performance as governor in all sectors, especially on development of the rural communities via provision of water, healthcare and educational institutions.

In response to the people's comments, Daniel said he was excited by the massive support from the residents and promised not to betray the confidence reposed in him if given the opportunity to represent Ogun East Senatorial District.

The APC senatorial candidate pledged to attract viable and people-oriented projects to every part of Ogun East towards improving the lot of teeming residents.

He noted that Nigeria was well endowed with abundant human and natural resources but required good leaders to fulfill the dreams of its founding fathers.

Daniel pleaded with the people to exercise their civic responsibilities in the coming elections by voting for those that would engender good governance.

OGD, as he is fondly nicknamed, governed Ogun State between 2003 and 2011, under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, during which he transformed the state from its civil service cum agrarian status to a commercial hub. 

He decamped to the APC during the 2019 governorship election when the PDP protracted crises couldn't be solved amid litigations.

 He launched his senatorial campaign two Sundays ago, on October 2, by flaging-off an unprecedented Mega Empowerment program at the palace of the Akarigbo and paramount ruler of Remo Kingdom, where mammoth crowd stormed, to be part of the event.

During the Mega Empowerment program, he has given out a Jeep, N10 million worth of tractor and many other items like sowing machine, generators, among others, to those who won his campaign raffles, who were mostly poor electorate.

This his new ward to ward tour commenced on Monday from Ijebu North East Local Government Area of the state, with all the 10 wards of the council toured amidst fanfare.

With solidarity songs and jubilation he was received by thousands of APC members and supporters as well as well-meaning residents, as he began the tour.

He toured places like: Odosenlu to Igede/Itamarun through Imomo and stopped at Ibido/Idorunwo wards, where his large entourage with him were received enthusiastically.

The Daniel's campaign train also drummed support for the candidacy of APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as well as other candidates of the ruling party in the 2023 elections.

The ongoing tour would also see Otunba Daniel and his campaign train stopping at each of the 103 wards across the nine local government areas in Ogun East Senatorial District.
