In a statement on Tuesday, Daniel said his decision to join the ruling party comes after the National Chairman of the APC visited his house along with some APC governors.
The ex-governor apologised to his former party for the short notice, stating that his support for Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, was a pointer to the new development.
“Dear friends and colleagues, pardon my short notice in informing you of my route to the APC which as you might have suspected started with my supporting Governor Dapo Abiodun during the last election.
“I have since experienced an avalanche of encouragement to come on board. However, in the last 48 hours, things took a dizzying speed with the decision of the APC National Chairman’s request to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about three governors.
“While planning for the visit, the governor also decided to visit me later with another set of governors today. It, therefore, means that I have finally been captured. I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral. Thanks for your understanding.”
The detection was in time for Mr. Daniel’s eligibility to pick up the APC’s membership before ongoing registration exercise expires later today.
KanyiDaily recalls that a former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, had said that anyone who leaves the PDP for the APC is driven by greed and enviousness.
