Sources at the meeting said that Makinde extolled the capacity of Daniel as a politician and also emphasised on the need to for south weat pdp to take his stand and make his demands from the national leadership.
Makinde said if all former Governors of the PDP in the South West would rise to take back their party, the party at the national level will not have a choice than to align.
The Governor recalled the crucial role Daniel played in reorganising PDP in Oyo State before the 2019 elections to return it to winning ways in the state.
Oyinlola, a former Governor of Osun State, said he had met with three groups in Ogun State and the resolution was: “If we have to solidify our stand in Ogun, you (Daniel) have to take charge.”
He assured that once the leaders in the South West presented a common front, the national leadership would comply.
Speaking earlier, Daniel said the crisis in Ogun State PDP was very easy to solve if all parties are made to know their place, adding that the solution to the problem must be all encompassing.
He said: “I have relationships with practically everybody. The PDP is still a strong brand, if everybody comes together.
“Our administration remains a strong reference for governance in the state and you can see that almost everyone who has or is in power came from PDP.”
Daniel also emphasised that the party hierarchy in Abuja must realise the uniqueness of the South West so that they can properly intervene without truncating the process.
