Two weeks ago, the news of the former Speaker National House of Assembly, Dimeji Bankole hit the nation. Bankole defected along with his People to the All Progressives Congress. Bankole was the Governorship candidate in 2018 Governorship Polls in the state. It should be recalled that Bankole defected from his Party, Action Democratic Party ADP to the All Progressives Congress APC. Meanwhile, The Former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel has earlier defected to the All Progressives Congress APC from the Peoples Democratic party PDP.
It means that both Dimeji Bankole and Gbenga Daniel have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress APC. Gbenga Daniel was Chairman of the Atiku campaign organization in 2018 Presidential Polls. He dumped Atiku Abubakr and the Peoples Democratic party PDP. Though, Bankole and Atiku's defection May Hit the Peoples Democratic party PDP but it is a blessing to the Party in Ogun State.
The Peoples Democratic Party PDP should be happy with The Defection of Gbenga and Bankole to the All Progressives Congress APC as their defection is a blessing to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP. Though, The All Progressives Congress APC Leaders have Laboured enough to ensure that the two Leaders, Dimeji Bankole and Gbenga Daniel defected to the Party. It should also be recalled that Gbenga Daniel has his faction in the Peoples Democratic party PDP before he dumped the Party.
Gbenga Daniel is having his faction in the Peoples Democratic party PDP and another faction in the Party is that of the Late Buruji Kashamu, Though, Late Buruji Kashamu faction has also Dumped the PDP for APC in Ogun State. These are the Leaders given the Problem. And The Party in Ogun state has not been putting her into order, Since the conduction of 2019 Governorship Polls in the state. The Party has not been able to settle the Crisis rocking the Party because of the factions here and there in the Party. Gbenga Daniel faction happened to be one of them.
The Peoples Democratic party PDP, Ogun State chapter should be happy that all the Leaders that may be giving the Party problem before the next election have dumped the Party for the All Progressives Congress APC. What the Party needs to do now is to setup a committee that will reconcile the agrieved members of the Party together ahead the 2023 Governorship Polls. This will help the Party, if the steps to reconcile the agrieved members together should be taken on time instead of wasting time on those who have dumped the Party.
The same things goes with the former Speaker Dimeji Bankole. Dimeji Bankole has dumped the Peoples Democratic party PDP for the Action Democratic party ADP years before he finally dumped the Party, ADP for the All Progressives Congress APC. Meanwhile, Not all his followers defected along with him to the All Progressives Congress APC. There are some of his followers that would Prefer going back to the Peoples Democratic party PDP than to Defect to the All Progressives Congress APC.
Both Dimeji Bankole and Gbenga Daniel Defections should not give Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic party PDP problem ahead the 2023 Governorship Polls. They should not express any fears. Politicians are minorities when it comes to voting but the real voters are the downtroddens who doesn't have anything. These are the People that will determine the faith of any Political Parties in any election. Therefore, the The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic party PDP should not worry too much about Bankole And Daniel's Defection.
