Gbenga Daniel, a former Governor of Ogun State, has revealed the southwest is being considered to produce Nigeria’s next president.
Gbenga Daniel made this assertion on Monday, January 10, while addressing journalists at the remembrance service for his late father, Adebola Daniel, at the Abraham Tabernacle Baptist International Worship Centre in Sagamu, Ogun State.
He noted that the southwest stands a better chance of producing Nigeria’s next president; if the region agrees to a consensus candidate.
The former governor urged traditional rulers and political stakeholders in the region; to streamline and produce a consensus candidate.
According to Gbenga Daniel: “The western states or what you can call the south-west is being strongly considered; 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 really 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. Power is never served a la carte. They, therefore, have duties and responsibilities to come together and say we can present a candidate.”
