The date for the national congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is drawing closer and former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel is campaigning to become the national chairman of the party.

Daniel said he can help return power to the people if he is elected and allow to run an open office.

Speaking during a meeting with party delegates in Kogi, Daniel described the PDP prior to the 2015 elections as crises-ridden and promised to deal decisively with all the problems that plunged its fortunes in 2015.

"I’m a crisis manager as I have just told you; and not only that, I’m a tested hand. I understand what it means to run an election. I have manned a state before and I have managed people.

"The bulk of the challenge we have in the party is just people management. For you to be successful, you must have the capacity to manage interlocking interests.

"As crisis managers, we must strive very hard to underplay areas of division”, he said.

Daniel has been visiting various states across the country to seek support for his ambition.

An election will be conducted during the convention scheduled for December 9, 2017 to determine the PDP's new national chairman.
