Ogun PDP crisis: Top PDP members meet's Daniel

A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, on Wednesday led a team from the Presidency to a private meeting in Sagamu, Ogun State with the state governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, over the political crisis rocking the state.

Other members of the delegation were the Chief of Staff to the President, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe, and the PDP National Secretary, Alhaji Kawu Baraje. They met with Daniel at his Asoludero residence in Sagamu.

The meeting, which lasted for over three hours, followed speculations that the governor was planning to dump the PDP for another party in protest at the non-submission of the candidates list from his faction to the Independent National Electoral Commission. Addressing journalists after the meeting, Anenih said the delegation was in Ogun “to greet the governor.”

Anenih, who denied knowledge of Daniel’s alleged plan to dump the party, said, “I’m a member of the PDP. We are here to greet the governor.

“The state governor is one of the leaders and pillars of the PDP. I don’t believe he said what you are saying.”

On the way out of the political logjam in the state, Anenih said, “PDP has a way of solving its problems. So, we will solve the problem in our own way.”

However, Ogjiadomhe and Baraje declined to speak, saying it was not necessary since Anenih had addressed journalists.
