LAGOS OCTOBER 31ST (NEWSRANGERS)-National Chairman Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party , PDP and former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba (Engr) Gbenga Daniel has affirmed that he has the skill and capacity to reposition PDP as the ruling party in Nigeria if elected as the Chairman of the party.
Gbenga Daniel who gave the assurance on Sunday during a roundtable discussion with members of Guild Of Corporate Online Publishers, GOCOP at Maryland, Ikeja, Lagos said what they needed is to reboot PDP into power in 2019, adding that he possessed the skill, capacity and experience to return the party to national prominence in 2019 if elected as the chairman of the party.
He pointed out that the Chairmanship position of the party in a situation where it is not in control of central government should not be made to compensate some group of people, but it should be seen as a situation that call for work.
He noted that the potential National Chairman of PDP is putting himself out to be scrutinize, to be harass and to be dealt with because the party is not in power at the national level, stressing that the Chairman is taking over a party that is at the lowest ebb for repackaging, reprogramming , re-strategizing and re-orientation and as such it need a a hardworking and experienced person like him as the Chairman.
Gbenga Daniel who assured party fateful that he has the qualities to achieve the aforementioned goals that other candidate probably do not have stated, “ At the lowest level, I remove the government in power in 2003 in Ogun. I did it successfully without any bloodshed. I have also run elections successfully in various levels. Apart from Ogun state, in 2010 to 2011, I coordinated the Presidential election in the South-West.
“ I also happen to be a two term governor that have networked for several years. In this process, the experience I gain from the network as a governor is very important. I have a lot of network experience which I have acquired in the course of being a governor and doing my business. When you begin to take the aggregate of all this together you will actually come to the conclusion that I have the capacity to do it. But not only that, I am a pioneer. I have always been a pioneer in my life. I am a pioneer in hostile environment.
“I left a lucrative and well pad job and came to start Kresta Laurel. When I started Kresta Laurel, I was the Secretary, the technician and the Managing Director among others. I have been able to grow Kresta Laurel today that it is probably operating in about eight major cities in the country with over 600 workers. Come rain or shine we are still paying salaries. I think I have that capacity.”
He observed that virtually all the candidates contesting for the Chairmanship position of PDP are eminently qualified, adding that they equally have their strength and weaknesses.
Gbenga Daniel who disclosed that he will start his campaign tour across the country on Wednesday and it will go on for the month of November, said, “ I think that the work has to be done by the delegates is to painstakingly look at the position of the party today. As I said earlier on, if the party where to be in power at the federal government, probably any kind of chairman can do the work. But now that the party is not in power it is quite a different case. “
He lamented that Nigerians complain every now and then that things are not working well and when it is time to make a change they refuse to make a change that will make things better, stressing that when things become worst they began to gnash their teeth.
Taking a swipe on the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of All Progresive Congress, the former Ogun State Governor said Nigerians are bitter over the poor administration of this present government.
Hear him, “In the course of my consultation, I have gone round the country and discovered that all the strata of all those I met are unhappy. Wealthy people who suppose to be member of the status quo are not happy. The biggest factors are the commoners, the talakawas and those in IDP camp. They are saying that there is no food on the table. When you look at the various strata, everybody is not happy. This government is just lucky because of the level of personification now. It does not get to this level before you have other kind of intervention.
“ What is the exchange rate of the Naira today compare to when he got there? Has corruption been reduced? As people who are educated, we need to ask ourselves all this questions intelligently and then try to back it up with statistics. Has corruption reduced? I am not so sure. Has security improved? I am not so sure. Has road infrastructure improved? I am not so sure. Has anything differently been done in the railway transport system? I am not so sure. We are all in the position to say beyond the rhetoric what are the facts? And based on those facts, we can begin to make our choice.”
