The ex-governor pointed out that there are “too many options” offered by the ruling APC.

Gbenga disclosed this to newsmen after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday. He was however accompanied by a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Daniel said, “Why APC? There are too many options at the party. One thing is sure that we are going through health and economic challenges, we must do less of political contestations and give support,” he said.
