Founder of Oodua Peoples’ Congress, Dr Frederick Fasehun, has announced his retirement from partisan politics and civil rights activism.
Fasehun made the announcement on Saturday at his 80th birthday celebration in Lagos.
He also urged Nigerians to be patient with President Buhari as he rebuilds and re-organises the country.
“I give up placard-carrying; every Nigerian is my brother, Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and others. All of us should be committed to bridge-building; henceforth, I will be an advocate of peace to all.”
“We have not noticed the possible aspect of change but 100 days is too short. We want Nigerians to be patient; we want to advise President Muhammadu Buhari to concentrate on governance.”
“Our country needs to be re-organised and that is why I feel very happy that many ethnic nationalities are here because we want to use this opportunity to start bridge-building in this country.”
