Some loyalists of former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel have joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The decampees are members and leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

The defectors were led by Daniel's former Special Adviser on Youth and Sports, Raheem Ajayi.

Ajayi popularly referred to as Baglo, said he and others had decided to team up with the APC following the party’s resolve to field an Ogun West man in the 2019 election.

Ajayi, who lamented that no Yewa – Awori person has been elected governor of the state since its creation, 42 years ago, said it’s reassuring that APC is determined to help the zone break the jinx in 2019.

“My primary aim of getting involved in political process especially in Ogun State is to better the lots of my people. Part of which is getting one of us, a Yewa-Awori man elected the governor of the state.
