Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko said Yoruba land was more protected by members of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) than the Police.

Speaking at the 80th birthday celebration of OPC founder, Dr Frederick Fasehun, in Lagos on Saturday, Mimiko commended the octogenarian for his exploits saying he is proud 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,” he said.

“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,” Mimiko said.

Also speaking, Maj. Hamzat Al-Mustapha (retd), former Chief Security of Officer (CSO) to late Sanni Abacha, former Head of State, described Fasehun as a bridge builder.

“He has done quite a lot; nobody can quantify the much he has put across the country.

“He has the capacity and the wisdom and the large heart to build bridges of peace in Nigeria,” he said.
