Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, has said that the Oodua Peoples Congress have protected the Yoruba land better than the Nigerian police.
Mimiko, stated this at the 80th birthday celebration of OPC founder, Frederick Fasehun, in Lagos on Saturday while giving eulogies of him.
He said that the formation of the group was one of the many legacies of Fasehun.
“You founded OPC. Today, I tell you in Yoruba land that many Yoruba people will feel secure with OPC guarding their streets than the conventional police.”
“It is not yet over; you struggled for democracy for this country; the second part of it is indeed the struggle for restructuring Nigeria into true federal states.
“One thing is clear and I have always said this that OPC is about protection of Yoruba people, because Yoruba people hate injustice.
“I speak on behalf of the government and people of Ondo state; we are proud of you. As a governor of Ondo state, I am proud to be associated with you.”
