Concise News reports that Daniel, a chieftain of opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) resigned from partisan politics on Friday after their defeat in the presidential election of February 23, 2019.

The former governor had thrown his weight behind Dapo Abiodun, abandoning his former party’s candidate in the governorship election, Buruji Kashamu.

Also, Abiodun on Saturday visited the Paramount Ruler and Olu of Ilaro, His Royal Majesty, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle.


He writes: “This evening, I paid a ‘Thank You’ visit to the Paramount Ruler and Olu of Ilaro, His Royal Majesty, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle. While at the Palace, I expressed my profound appreciation to the Paramount Ruler for his fatherly support during the course of my gubernatorial ambition.”

The governor-elect also hosted Ademola Ogunbanjo and his team in his Iperu home. They paid him a congratulatory visit.

He promises the team that he would lead the state with wisdom and the grace of God.

The governor-elect would be sworn-in on May 29.
