Former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has said that he’s not nursing a presidential ambition.

Daniel made the comment during a recent discussion with journalists, according to Punch.

“I have no presidential ambition or any political position but would remain as an elder statesman, giving advice to politicians,” he said.

“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,” he added.

Daniel served as governor of Ogun from May 2003 to May 2011.
