”I have no presidential ambition’, says Gbenga Daniel
A former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, says he has no presidential ambition.
Daniel said this during a chat with journalists ahead of his forthcoming 60th birthday on Saturday.
The former governor said he would remain as an elder statesman, giving advice to politicians.
“I have no presidential ambition or any political position but would remain as an elder statesman, giving advice to politicians,” he said.
Daniel said the day he was arraigned in court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was the worst day of his life.
He said, “The day I will never forget in my life was the day I was arraigned in court in Abeokuta. Some students sponsored by the government that were singing abusive songs outside the court. They were calling me a thief. They said I took $3m of state funds, N1bn of local government funds but they were lies.”
