OPC Factions In Renew Face Off Over 25th Anniversary Celebration

A faction of Oodua Peoples Congress, New Era has took a swipe on Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams over his plan to organize the 25th year anniversary of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC).

The group in a press release signed by its President, Comrade Razak Arogundade and National Public Relations Officer, Comrade Adeshina Akinpelu described the planned 25th anniversary of OPC by Adams as ill-conceived, selfish and attempt by Gani Adams to further destabilise the Yoruba pressure group.

Arogundade accused Adams of celebrating the anniversary of a group he was not the founder and trying to take credit for the works of others.

According to the release “It came to us as a surprise that Gani Adams will once again come out to hoodwink Yoruba people into believing that he founded OPC by organising its anniversary.

“Here is a man who never accorded the late founder of OPC, Chief Fredrick Fasehun any respect while alive. It is the sweat of late founder that he is trying to reap from today”.

Speaking further Arogundade said that it is very wrong for Adams who has continued to encourage disunity of the group and Yoruba race to organise anniversary of OPC’s existence.

“Ask Adams why celebrating the 25th anniversary of OPC due to the kind of relationship he had with the founder of the group, and other leaders who made OPC what it is today?

“Ask him if he had ever visited the families or had any welfare plan for the families of our members who died during the struggle,” the group added.
