Femi Fani-Kayode a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has said the decision of Gbenga Daniel to dump the party at the time it was challenging the presidential election result was tragic.
Fani-Kayode said in a tweet;
“For the 1st DG of Atiku’s PCO and his closest confidante in South West to dump PDP and join APC before the conclusion of Atiku’s election petition is sad,”
“For a man that was gunning to be SGF in an Atiku govt. to join Buhari after Atiku was rigged out is tragic.”

Daniel, a former governor of Ogun State was the director-general of PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar’s campaign organisation.
Atiku lost the 2019 presidential election to President Muhammadu Buhari. Atiku rejected the results, alleging the elections were rigged and filed a petition at the election tribunal.
AmeboClick had earlier reported that Daniel on Thursday, 14 March informed the PDP leadership of his retirement from partisan politics.
The reason for his retirement, he said, were “personal”.
