However, in dramatic twist on Sunday, OGD as popularly called, addressed his supporters and loyalists at his Asoludero residence in Sagamu on why “he decided to quit partisan politics.”

Hundreds of his supporters roared and rejected Daniel’s position, saying “he must lead them in to APC”, having worked for the victory of the ruling party’s gubernatorial candidate, Dapo Abiodun in March 9 election.

After about two hours of drama, Daniel left the hall without responding to his supporters’ demands.

When approached by newsmen, Daniel said “my people have spoken.”
