PDP not dead —Daniel

EX-governor Gbenga Daniel has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is not dead, as claimed in some quarters, submitting that the party only lacked spirit and father figure to overcome its present challenges.

The former governor who administered Ogun State for eight years under the platform of the party, explained that there is no political party without challenges, insisting that both Senator Ahmed Makarfi and Senator Ali Modu Sheriff must come together for the party to regain its lost glory.

He said, “PDP is not dead. It is a national party. It may not be strong in some parts of the country. The party may be ailing. Virtually all parties have challenges. The two sides must work together if the party must walk on the path of glory.

“Don’t let us forget that there is crisis in the All Progressives Congress. They have been managing their crisis. There is no visible father figure in the party. It’s now left to various caucuses, various local champions.”

Daniel stated this while featuring on a live radio interview in Abeokuta,also noted that the crisis in the party was not a crisis of performance.

He commended the fight against corruption of the present administration and advised that much more is still to be done in the area of economy.
