The former governor of Ogun, Otunba Gbenga Daniel says he is a crisis manager and the best candidate for the national chairmanship position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He was in Kogi on Wednesday for a meeting with the party delegates from the state to seek their support.
Daniel said he could lead the PDP to bounce back and “change the change” at the federal and state levels it had lost, come 2019.
He described the PDP prior to the 2015 elections as crises-ridden and promised to deal decisively with all the crisis that bedevilled the party and robbed it of its prime position in the country.
“I’m a crisis manager as I have just told you; and not only that.
“I’m a tested hand. I understand what it means to run an election. I have manned a state before and I have managed people.
“The bulk of the challenge we have in the party is just people’s management.
“For you to be successful, you must have the capacity to manage interlocking interests.
“As crisis managers, we must strive very hard to underplay areas of division”, he said.
He promised to entrench the culture of internal democracy, if successful.
Responding, State Chairman of PDP, Sam Ohuotu, commended the former governor and his team for bringing their campaign train to Kogi, assuring him of members’ support.
