19 September 2016, 14:01

Abeokuta - Former Governor of Ogun State,  Gbenga Daniel, says the current leadership crises rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was due to the exit of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, reports Vanguard.

Daniel while featuring on a private radio programme, Sweet FM’s “Poduim” in Abeokuta, said if Obasanjo was still in the party, he would have help resolve the crisis in the party.

He urged both the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi and factional Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff to close ranks in order to ensure victory at the polls in 2019.

According to Daniel, “While I was the governor of Ogun State, Makarfi was a governor, also while I was still the governor, Ali Modu-Sheriff was also a governor. So the two of them are close to me. The two sides must work together, because the road to victory has no room for divisionism.

Daniel, who noted that it was not only the PDP that had crisis, added that the All Progressives Congress (APC,) was also engulfed in internal crisis but has been able to manage it well.
