Lagos OPC Dismisses Gani Adams Expulsion Rumour
The recent allegation that a set of people have come together to harmonize Oodua Peoples Congress as a body has been described as a statement from dreamers and jesters.
According to the Lagos State Coordinator of the OPC, Alhaji Mutairu Adéshínà, the statement coming from these set of people expelled from the Otunba Gani Adams-led OPC in 2015, is a tissue of lies and a fabrication of what they dream of.
Adeshina said: “How can they claim to have expelled Otunba Gani Adams from a body he started and today is the most visible and vibrant body?
“They should come out and tell me their grouse.
“Is it the fact that in Yorubaland Otunba Gani Adams remains one of the prominent figures?
“Is it because people are suggesting that Otunba be given the mother of all chieftaincy titles, which comes with a huge sacrifice to the holder and a prominent chieftaincy title to be given a Yorubaman?
“Is it about the fast growing progress of Oodua Progressive Union already in 78 countries and still growing?
“Is it their lack of will to even come up with a Yoruba ideology that they represent that is their problem?
“We heard that Razak Arogundade calls his group New Era, and Dare Adesope calls his OPC Reformed.
“Why are so desperate to push a vibrant leader away?
“In the field of music, football and even struggle, there are various interests and they all work to defend their interests.
“What have they done as individuals?
“How many members do they have?
“Is it the cultural promotion that Olokun Festival Foundation is championing in the last 17 years?
“Or the recent success of the raiding of Badoo hotspots in Ikorodu via joint action with Nigeria Police and other stakeholders?
“Where is their office?
“Where do they operate from?
“Let them come out with pictures of their members.
“Otunba Gani Adams is too focused to be distracted by these bunch of clowns.
“This is just to warn the general public that they are nonentities who don’t have anything to do with their lives than being tools in the hands of desperate politicians and land grabbers.
“They have been dismissed since 2015 and they remained dismissed.”
