A former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, has described as lies reports that he stole state funds during his tenure in office and described the day he was arraigned in court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as the worst day of his life.
Daniel, popularly known as OGD, made this disclosure while addressing journalists ahead of his 60th birthday, scheduled for March 26, 2016.
“The day I will never forget in my life was the day I was arraigned in court in Abeokuta. Some students sponsored by the government that were singing abusive songs outside the court. They were calling me a thief. They said I took $3m of state funds, N1bn of local government funds but they were lies.”
The former Governor also said that he has no presidential ambition.
“I have no presidential ambition or any political position but would remain as an elder statesman, giving advice to politicians,” he said.
