Oodua People’s Congress, the Yorubas’ version of Niger Delta militants, is undergoing a crisis of sorts.
Gani Adams, National Coordinator of OPC, says some dismissed and suspended ex-members are in cahoot with Bola Tinubu to remove him from the leadership position.
Adams says the members have sought financial assistance from the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, to remove or get rid (whatever that means) of him as leader of the OPC.
“This latest evil scheme of these disgruntled elements is coming on the heels of their earlier plans to assassinate Otunba Gani Adams which we exposed some months back. They have also mounted a campaign of calumny and malicious falsehood to malign the person of the national coordinator on print and electronic media all to no avail.”
While giving himself a vote of confidence, Gani Adams reminded the disgruntled elements of his antecedents and clearly stated that he brings in all the money into the group, hence, they should show some appreciation like others.
“The illegal and criminal conduct of these dismissed elements is no longer fashionable and not in tandem with the current aspirations of the repackaged OPC led by Otunba Gani Adams which has given birth to five different organizations, saddled with different noble responsibilities that are useful to the society both nationally and internationally.”
“These dismissed elements should come out with concrete evidence of any form of malfeasance or embezzlement of the funds of OPC or any other organization.
It is worthy of note that seventy five percent of OPC funding is sourced by Otunba Gani Adams and this noble act is appreciated by the National Executive Council; National Coordinating Council and the general members of the organization”
