A national chairmanship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Otunba Gbenga Daniel, has asserted that he has no plan to step down for any of his opponents in the race.
He said this in reaction to speculations that he might withdraw from the race, and pave the way for Chief Olabode George, a former deputy national chairman of the party.
Others in the race are Jimi Agbaje, 2015 governorship candidate of the PDP in Lagos State; Prof. Tunde Adeniran, a former Minister of Education and Prof. Taoheed Adedoja, a former Minister of Sports.
Daniel said: “All the aspirants for this position are my friends and competent people but I am the bridge builder and the best man for the job.
“I will not step down for anyone because I did my consultations during our convention in Port Harcourt and I know so many leaders in Yorubaland who support me.
“People contest for various reasons. Some people contest to enrich their curriculum vitae, some contest to get donations while some run to win.
“It is not a do-or-die affair. It is an in-house contest and I’m running to win so as to bring my experiences to bear on the party and work on re-positioning the party.”
