‘Streamline number of Presidential aspirants from South-West’ – Ex-Governor

On Sunday, a former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel, appealed to political leaders and traditional rulers in the South-West geopolitical to consult, consider, and streamline the number of presidential aspirants from the region ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He made the call in an interview with journalists at the Abraham Tabernacle Baptist International Worship Centre in Sagamu, Ogun State, on the sidelines of the 17th annual thanksgiving and 10th remembrance service for his late father, Adebola Daniel.

According to him, the call has become imperative because “the western states or what you can call the South-West is under strong consideration to take over the mantle of leadership for the President.

“As usual, you know how it goes; there are many of our people who are qualified, strong, willing and able.

But if we want to retain that opportunity, it is incumbent on all our leaders and elders to come together and streamline.

“If they come together, consider one or two people, the chances are that Nigerians would respond and respect that wish.

“That is why I am appealing to all our Obas and leaders not to rest on their oars.

No one serves Power a la carte.

They, therefore, have duties and responsibilities to come together and say we can present a candidate.


When asked if his proposition is realistic considering the different political divides in the region, Daniel responded, “The way it works, Power belongs to God, so It is for people who aspire to get, and there is nothing wrong with people aspiring.

“But everything is wrong in everyone struggling in a way that in the end, nothing is achievable.
