Former Military President of Nigeria, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, IBB, has anointed the candidacy of Otunba Gbenga Daniel for the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party.

According to a statement by Steve Oliyide, a media aide to former Governor of Ogun State, IBB threw his weight behind Daniel after a courtesy visit by the chairmanship aspirant.
Babangida, who is one of the founders of the PDP, described Gbenga Daniel as the 'breath of fresh air' needed as the National Chairman of the party.
IBB made this declaration at his Hilltop residence in Minna, Niger state on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, when OGD led a delegation to pay him a visit in furtherance of his nationwide consultation. Ibrahim Babangida
Speaking during the visit, Daniel said he had come to confer with the former President on his ambition, noting that no serious politician in the country would embark on such an important national task without seeking the wisdom and blessing of the former President.
Responding, Babangida said he was quite elated when he learnt that Otunba Gbenga Daniel was interested in offering his service to the country.

He said: "I was elated when I first heard that you were interested in volunteering yourself for this great service to our country, you represent the breath of fresh air that the Party deserves at this stage.
"I know OGD very well and I know his unparalleled capacity for work. I have a strong conviction that with OGD as chairman, the Party can be turned around again.
"I am supporting you because I know you very well. OGD, you're my Chairman in waiting" Gen. Babangida thereafter hosted the delegation to a private meeting.
