Crisis engulfing the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, are far from being over as a group plotting the removal of the National Coordinator Oodua People’s Congress, Otunba Gani Adams has challenged him to present the statements of bank account of the congress from 1999 to date.
The call was made by the National Coordinating Council of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), through its spokesperson, Mr. Adesina Akinpelu in Ibadan Monday.
According to the group, other members have lost confidence in the leadership of Adams and that the most honourable thing for him to do was to resign from his position as the national coordinator of the congress.
While speaking with newsmen in Ibadan yesterday, the spokesman of the council, Akinpelu, pleaded with Yoruba monarchs and governors in the South West to prevail on Adams not to cause another orgy of violence within the OPC.
Recalling how lives were lost in the previous internal crises allegedly ignited by the OPC’s National Coordinator in Lagos and Ibadan in the past.
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 liberated from the shackles of Gani Adams, other state chapters will be liberated. Oyo OPC has equally been liberated. No amount 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”.
“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”, he alleged.
