A PDP chairmanship aspirant, Gbenga Daniel, has vowed not to step down for anyone regardless of the pressure being mounted on him to do so. The former governor of Ogun state, who was reacting to rumours that he might be stepping down for former deputy National chairman of the PDP, Bode George, insisted that he is the most suitable for the job and would not back out to further the interest of another person.
Quote: “All the aspirants for this position are my friends and competent people but I am the bridge builder and the best man for the job. I will not step down for anyone because I did my consultations during our convention in Port Harcourt and I know so many leaders in Yorubaland who support me.
“People contest for various reasons. Some people contest to enrich their curriculum vitae, some contest to get donations while some run to win. It is not a do-or-die affair. It is an in-house contest and I’m running to win so as to bring my experiences to bear on the party and work on re-positioning the party,’’ Daniel said.
