He equally directed his supporters to vote for the All Progressive Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate, Dapo Abiodun in the last Saturday’s election, wherein Abiodun emerged.

“Yes, it true. He wrote the letter”, Oliyide said.

“My decision in this regard is entirely personal to me and having served in various capacities, including as Governor of Ogun State, I have resolved to immerse myself in some other vocations and take on some new challenges,” Daniel popularly called OGD, said in the letter.
