Otunba Gbenga Daniel not our leader — South-West PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West on Saturday said a former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, did not lead its members in the zone to the inauguration of the reconstruction of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway by President Goodluck Jonathan.  The party said it was laughable that Daniel now known as the “chief promoter” of the rival Labour Party in the zone would be the head of the party’s delegation to the event presided over by a president elected on the platform of the PDP.

Jonathan had on Friday in Sagamu, Ogun State inaugurated the reconstruction of the road.
The South-West PDP in a statement by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Waheed Lawal, in Abeokuta said the clarification was necessary against the backdrop of reports in some sections of the media that Daniel led the party’s delegation to the event.

Gbenga Adeboye’s Carefree Nature Was His Greatest Mistake –Brother

Ten years after the demise of humour merchant and master of oduology Gbenga Adeboye, his brother, Femi, shares the family’s experience in this interview 

Ten years after Gbenga Adeboye’s death, how is the family taking it?
Because we so much believe in God in our family, we take everything as it comes. My father died in 2004 but my mother is still alive and she believes that nothing happens except God decrees it. At times she talks about my brother’s death but she attributes everything to God.

History’ll judge OBJ – Gbenga Daniel

Due essentially to adversarial kind of politics people play in this part of the world, hardly has any public office holder in Nigeria come out unscathed. This is particularly so for former Governor Gbenga Daniel of Ogun State who has been entangled in a web of controversies with his successor, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, over the debt profile allegedly accumulated by his administration.  In this no-holds-barred interactive session with some journalists, OGD gave a blow-by-blow account of his roles in all sensitive matters threatening his public image. Excerpts:
The government of Ogun State recently announced that you accumulated hundreds of billions of naira debt before your administration left office. What is your position on that?
