A former governor of Ogun State Otunba Gbenga Daniel says he was offered the Senate ticket of the PDP in the state for a price, according to Premium Times.
Daniel said the ticket was offered to him in his house in Sagamu by a “presidential delegation of the PDP, led by Tony Anenih”.
The former governor made the disclosure Wednesday at a social media forum known as PenPushing Platform.
Daniel said he was interested in vying for the ticket of Ogun East senatorial district on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP but became discouraged when he was told the ticket would go to the highest bidder.
“I was offered the ticket at a price but I rejected it because I could not come to terms morally and in good conscience with purchasing a ticket to contest election to serve.
“Some people even tried to pay the price but I stopped them. Insiders are fully aware of these details. Just setting records straight with respects.
“I voluntarily declined, as I was engaged to coordinate President Jonathan’s campaign in the SouthWest for PDP, while supporting most of our cheated candidates who went to PPN at that time”.
