- Gbenga Daniel reportedly says he will not abandon Atiku Abubakar as was being believed in some quarters
- The former governor of Ogun state reveals that his next move would now be to help the less privileged
- Daniel says he would still play roles in politics, but that this would be through non-partisanship
Gbenga Daniel, the former director-general of the presidential campaign council of Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the recent election, has said he would still be involved in politics.
Daniel, however, said his involvement would be taken from the non-partisan point while adding that he would not abandon Atiku Abubakar, according to New telegraph.
The former governor of Ogun state said in a statement on Tuesday, March 19, that he had lost interest in partisan politics which he reportedly described as a thankless process after 20 years of his involvement.
“I will commit my God given resources to help the less privileged through my foundation and will contribute sharing the body of knowledge through our not for profit Political Academy. That will be a thankful process.
“I will continue to support the political process in a non partisan manner. I am clear with my position, without any ambiguity.
“There is no need to insinuate, speculate, extrapolate, anticipate or draw conclusions on my behalf.
“I did not expect such a simple personal decision can generate such national discourse and for that I remain grateful to God.

“I am however most grateful to all my friends and well wishers. The phones have not stopped ringing. All the advice are well taken. My very deep appreciation,” he said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Gbenga Daniel had taken a definite stand concerning his alleged political move to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former governor, who announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a letter to the party’s headquarters recently, was believed to have moved to the APC after he revealed that his supporters wanted him to lead them to the ruling party.
