Ogun: Coalition urges former governor to run for Senate
A Coalition of Civil Society Organisations in Ogun State, Ogun Democratic Agenda (ODA), has urged the former state governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, to run for a Senatorial seat.
Rising from its third quarterly meeting in Abeokuta, the State capital, the coalition said Daniel would complement Governor Dapo Abiodun’s achievements.
“We need more quality leaders, who have proved their mettle in their previous public assignments to aspire for strategic public offices, where they could collaborate with Governor Abiodun, with a view to moving the state to greater heights,” the group’s coordinators, Ismail Olawale and Secretary Olaide Babalola said in a communiqué.
“Otunba Daniel was outstanding during his administration. He possesses the laudable vision and inherent leadership capacity to translate ideas to reality… This is the time we need to consolidate on the framework of his laudable vision and create a synergy between Governor Abiodun’s transformational agenda, especially in the area of digital development of our dear state,” the group said.
The coalition said the National Assembly was in need of brilliant, charismatic and politically matured persons such as Daniel, who would bring their wealth of experience in the private sector, as well as their political network to bear in their legislative stewardship to the nation.
