#National Unity: OPC Distance Self from Odua Republic Agitation

Share This Story Now!

The Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) has dissociated itself from the ongoing agitation for Oduduwa Republic, stressing its support for restructuring of the country.

The group’s President, Otunba Wasiu Afolabi, who belongs to the late Frederick Fasheun faction, made the declaration during his inauguration as the new leader.

Oluwabunmi, son of Fasehun, founder of OPC, also emerged as national secretary at the national convention of the organisation.

Afolabi, while clarifying the group’s position on agitation for Oduduwa Republic in his acceptance speech, said: ‘Let me quickly address the matter of those agitating for a separate Yoruba nation.

I was Deputy President to Dr. Fasehun for over eight years. Along with many people, we undertook several projects, programmes and journeys together with Baba. In his life-time, Dr. Frederick Fasehun never spoke to us about Yoruba independence. Anyone who tells you Baba ever said so is a liar. What Dr. Fasehun was concerned about was for Nigeria to hold the sovereign national conference (SNC). Baba preached the gospel of restructuring in which the states or regions will enjoy devolution of power and resource control. That is where OPC stands. He also urged members to operate within the confines of the law in their zeal to tackle insecurity.” Sunday SUN reporting for;

    Broom thank you for sharing. This nice. But, I wish to state for likely critique:

    Now flash back 1:

    When late Pa Enahoro raised motion for independence of Nigeria, some people opposed it.

    Now flash back 2:
    Those who opposed the motion then, are now holding and would not let go the positions of presidency and influence on Nigeria.

    And 3

    When respected Dr Fredrick Faseun died, his vibrant faction became dormant or dull and without leader or silenced leader. (Leader? In-fighting??)

    Now and suddenly a leader is inaugurated. (Good)

    4. Let Otunba Wasiu Afolabi make comments on the killings, rapping of women, destruction of farms and ransome. (Freedom of speech/comment/opinion. No question?)

    5. Gani Adams’ OPC is PDP and Wasiu Afolabi’s OPC is APC? This is normal expectation in any society.

    I raised issue that we can positively examine for our societies (politics involve discussion?).

    Abi wetin I talk?
