Dear APC, President Goodluck Jonathan deserves your praise- for approving a pipeline contract to the Oodua Peoples Congress.

According to the National Coordinator of the Yoruba group, Gani Adams, members of the All Progressives Congress should be grateful to the President for granting the OPC the opportunity to protect pipelines across the South-West.

He said the contract would provide at least 5,000 jobs for his members of his group and 10,000 jobs for other youths in the South-West.

Adams made the utterance while reacting to the allegation by the APC that Jonathan bribed ethnic militias with N9bn to derail the elections.

Last week Monday, Adams had led thousands of youths to protest against the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, in Lagos.

In his defence, Adams said: “The allegation is that the Federal Government gave us a contract: Pipeline security. What is the security of pipeline to the OPC? We have been running this organisation without getting a dime from any government but most of the security agencies saddled with the responsibility of protecting the pipelines have failed; people were dying every day.”

“Nigeria was losing more than N3bn everyday to the activities of the vandals and the agitation of that contract started from Dr. Fredrick Fasehun one and a half years ago and you know the bureaucracy of Nigerian ministries.”

“It was a long process and it was just granted and it will empower nothing less than 5,000 youths from my side. Altogether, that is about 15,000 jobs for Yoruba land. Will you deny Yoruba youths the opportunity of getting 15,000 jobs because of politics?”
