He therefore solicited for Akande’s support in the task of bridging all political interests in the region.
Daniel said: “I think the missing link in our politics is about engagements.
“We need to engage one another; we need to look at matters and issues even from the perspectives of those agitating for self-determination; we need to understand and appreciate their frustration, but above all we must be able to engage them and share alternative perspectives so that they can understand that we are better off as a country, but in a fair, just and equity nation where everybody will have equal opportunities.”
Akande commended the efforts and initiatives of Daniel and said he has no doubt in his ability because he knows that the former Ogun State governor has a progressive foundation for so many years.
