Gbenga Daniel

Gbenga Daniel, Atiku Abubakar’s former campaign Director-General has fired back at his critics as he stated that no one should insult him for dumping PDP.

According to the former Ogun State Governor,  he doesn’t understand the “insults” and invective hurled his way since he announced his resignation from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and partisan politics on Thursday, March 14, 2019.

Gbenga Daniel who was also accused of being a mole, stated in a new press statement made available to newsmen that nobody should insult him for dumping PDP. Recounting how he has worked to get to where he is now, he said;

“I am over 60 and have been a workaholic all my life.  I was listed by the then National Concord as one of 50 most fascinating businessmen in Nigeria in 1990 as CEO of Kresta Laurel Ltd. Before then, I was the first black DMD of a multinational conglomerate where I worked.

“My company Kresta Laurel @ 25, 3 years ago remains the only ISO certified in the country in Nigeria, I became the youngest Yoruba man to take a chieftaincy title in Ile Ife at Age 32, over 30 years ago. 

“I became governor at 47 and left at 55 after 8 years of governance some 8 years ago. In all my life, it’s been work, work and work and in the political arena it’s been the most thankless and insulting of all my life’s endeavor.

“Even to voluntarily step back which ordinarily should be applauded, it’s more insult. I think something is fundamentally wrong with us as a people. When a politician fails to leave, it’s complain galore from the younger generation.

“This one decides to step back at the peak before handing the baton to another DG and successfully helped others to replace a seating governor, you people have issues with that. Tell me what exactly do people want?”
