Atiku Abubakar’s former campaign Director-General, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, in his reaction to the backlash he got for dumping PDP, has said he is old enough to make his decisions.
Gbenga Daniel who was also accused of being a mole with the opposition party, stated in a new press statement made available to newsmen that nobody should insult him for dumping PDP.
“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?”
