Former Vice President and presidential hopeful of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has appointed a former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, the Director-General of his 2019 presidential campaign.
The unveiling of Gbenga Daniel was disclosed in a statement by the Atiku Media Office on Monday in Abuja.
Daniel, popularly known as OGD, was two-term governor of Ogun State from 2003 to 2011, and he is believed to have extensive network within the PDP.
Before his election as governor in 2003, Daniel was the Chief Executive Officer of an engineering company.
The statement added that Daniel’s experience, both in politics and in the private sector, would have positive bearing on Atiku’s campaign for president in 2019.
According to the statement, other appointments into the campaign team would be announced when the leadership of the campaign resumes work.
