Gbenga disclosed this statement to newsmen, he also apologized to supporters for his sudden defection, adding that his defection should have been predicted, given his contribution of support to current Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, during the last governorship in the state.
According to him:
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.
The former governor revealed that the pressure to join the APC had increased in recent times, adding that this made his cross over inevitable.
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 to request to visit me at Asoludero on Wednesday with about three governors.
While planning for the visit, Governor Abiodun also decided to visit me with another set of governors. It, therefore, meant that I have finally been ‘captured.
I thought I should quickly brief the house before the news goes viral. Thank you for your understanding.
It is still undisclosed what the former PDP chieftain is nursing ahead of the presidential elections in 2023.
