Gani Adams may be the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, but he doesn’t have the respect or loyalty of a great number of the group’s members.
A faction of the Oodua Peoples Congress, has threatened Adams against attempting to create another internal war among the members of the group.
While advising him against causing further violence, the faction also demanded that Adams present the statements of bank account of the congress from 1999 to date.
“We have discovered that Gani Adams is only after his own interests and not the interests of OPC members. He has over the years used the organization to better the lots of his own family,” said the spokesperson of the faction, Adesina Akinpelu in Ibadan on Monday.
The group says other members of the OPC have lost confidence in the leadership of Adams, while advising him to do the honourable thing and resign from his position as the national coordinator of the congress.
He said: “It is on record that lives of many indigenes of Oyo state and Lagosians were lost in the battles between Otunba Gani Adams and Dr. Fasheun in Lagos and between him(Adams) and Alaka in Ibadan in the past. We will not allow him to shed any blood in Ibadan or Lagos again. Any attempt by him to cause another internal war within the OPC, the battle will be taken to Arigidi-Akoko, his hometown.”
“We now know the antics of Gani Adams, and we will never allow him to have his way to start another internal war within the OPC. Just as OPC in Ekiti state has been libereted from the shackles of Gani Adams, other state chapters will be liberated. Oyo OPC has equally been liberated. No ammount of threat and intimidation from Gani Adams and his cohorts will stop me and other members of the council opposed to his tyrannical rule from upholding the truth we stand for.”
