Ogun Politics: President Buhari meets new APC members Gbenga Daniel and Dimeji Bankole in Abuja
President Muhammadu Buhari hosted new members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and Dimeji Bankole in the State House, Abuja on Monday.
Former Governor of Ogun State between 2003 and 2011, Otunba Daniel confirmed his defection from PDP to APC last month following visit from Governor Dapo Abiodun and some Northern Governors while former Speaker of the House of Representatives from 2007-11, Bankole followed suit.
The meeting was said to be a welcome encounter with the President following their moves to the ruling party, and it had caretaker chairman Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State in attendance.
Earlier on Monday, Daniel and Bankole were added to APC’s high-powered contact/strategy committee which has 61 members which include 12 serving Governors.
