Otunba Gbenga Daniel, the former Governor of Ogun State gave an insight after a brief meeting with Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo concluding that the VP understands Nigeria’s challenges.
Chief Daniel, was until recently a leading executive of the opposition party, PDP until defecting to APC spoke with the media at State House Abuja.
“You must be aware that I and a number of my colleagues recently joined the party; and part of what we have decided to do was to go round; we have seen the party, President and quite a number of the leaders.
“It is also incumbent; in fact, we were to see the vice president after the president; but we didn’t have the opportunity up until now; so, it is purely a courtesy call.
Of course, we seized the opportunity to interrogate some of the challenges we have in the nation.
“We are quite excited that from what the vice president said, he has a clear grasp of the challenges and we are persuaded that efforts are being put in place. HH
“It is a very difficult period in the history of our nation and all hands must be deck.’’
The former governor narrated the main reason for his defection with others was to join forces with leaders in government proffer solutions to challenges.
He said, “There are various angels to it; but ordinarily, the only way to tackle security challenges is to tackle poverty and to create employment.
“When a large section of the populace is gainfully employed, you now will be able to isolate people who are sabotaging and who have other sinister motives.
“But to the extent that we have not successfully been able to tackle unemployment, is for the main preoccupation of any administration.’’
