Expelled Members Enlist Tinubu’s Support To Oust Gani Adams – OPC

gani-adamsThe Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, has warned the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, against associating with some of its former members.
The OPC, in a statement on Tuesday by its Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Yinka Oguntimehin, said it had uncovered plans by dismissed members of the group to co-opt the former Lagos State Governor in their desperate attempt to oust Chief Gani Adams as the organisation’s President/National Coordinator.
According to the OPC, the dismissed members of the group had written a letter, dated August 4, 2015, to Tinubu, seeking his support and blessing to remove or get rid of Adams as the OPC president.
A copy of the said letter was signed by Rasak Balogun, Monsuru Akande, Musiliu Amusa, Adesina Akinpelu, Olayiwola Ogunsolu, Lateef Ogungbayi, Gbenga Egunlusi, Ranti Akande, Lateef Oshodi, Soji Folorunsho, Segun Olusanya, Idowu Akintunde, Sunday Bankole, Kehinde Ogunyale, and Sunday Adebayo.
The statement read, “The dismissed members, in a letter dated August 4, 2015, and signed by all of them, appealed to the former governor to help them with their plans to remove or get rid of Mr. Gani Adams as the National Coordinator of OPC.
“The names, handwriting and signatures on the letter tally perfectly with the information available in our archives. They have also mounted a campaign of calumny and malicious falsehood to malign the person of the national coordinator in the print and electronic media all to no avail.
“In their letter to the former Lagos State Governor, a copy of which was brought to our notice by a good Samaritan, the dismissed group regarded themselves as ‘The Ten Million Boys Strike Force’ – an appellation for their crude conduct. They are so desperate to enlist Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to get the support of the former governor and enlist some Yoruba leaders to create crisis in the OPC”.
The congress said its National Coordinating Council was in “unequivocal support” of the leadership of Adams and urged members of the general public to disregard its former members.
It further described as unreasonable, the alleged efforts of the ex-OPC members, “who were expelled on account of their illegalities”, to seek the support of Mr. Tinubu in order to oust Adams.
