President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday played host to the former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Dimeji Bankole, at the State House, Abuja.
The two men recently defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Bankole is also from Ogun State.
The two were accompanied by the APC Caretaker Chairman, Mai Mala Buni, who is also the governor of Yobe State, the Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum and Kebbi Governor, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, and Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State.
President Buhari later held a closed-door meeting with the defectors.
