Why state OPC leaders were sacked

Comrade Rotimi Olumo, the new state coordinator of Oodua Peoples Congress(OPC) in Oyo state has explained why some state leaders of the organisation were deposed.

He said that they were removed for an alleged misconduct.

The new state coordinator also reacted to negative statements against the National coordinator, Otunba Ganiyu Adams by the aggrieved and deposed state coordinators who alleged that Adams collected N10.6b from former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to Olumo who addressed journalists in Ibadan on Monday, the allegations against Adams were simply attempts to taint his good name.

Olumo said that the immediate former state coordinator, Comrade Adeola Adeagbo was derailed from the focus of the organization which has portrayed him as a betrayal to his boss and National Coordinator, Otunba Adams.

He maintained that, about 12 members were expelled from the organization last year and were allegedly lobbying the deposed state coordinator with goodies at the detriment of the organization.

He said it is on this backdrop that the National Coordinator, expelled him and replaced him.

He also mentioned the relevance of the OPC members in promoting peace in the society contrary to the the notion that the members were miscreants.

He therefore pledged his allegiance to police to support them in getting the state rid of thuggery and other anti-social activities.

He also described Otunba Adams as a good leader with focus to promote and support Yoruba ideologies among other ethnic groups in Nigeria and diaspora.
