Gani Adams speaks on OPC joining partisan politics

Gani Adams, National Coordinator Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), has stated that the group may soon joined partisan politics.

According to him, the move is geared towards liberating the Yoruba nation from poverty and injustice.

Gani Adams made this known while speaking on Thursday at the 25 anniversary of the socio-cultural group in Lagos.

He said: “Without mincing words, let me say categorically that the next few months will determine whether we will remain politically neutral or partisan.

“Do not forget that what gave birth to OPC was struggle for the revalidation of June 12, 1993 election.

“From there, we went to demand for the total restructuring of the country.
“The most recent irreducible for those who have followed this restructuring is for government to implement the recommendations of the National Conference convened by administration of Goodluck Jonathan.

“It is in light of this that I say that in the next few months, if there is no tangible evidence that this country will be restructured, then OPC will become partisan.

“We are still keeping the details to our chest. However, with a membership of over 6 million, even if its members of the legislature at the federal and state levels that we are able to produce, we will be in position to influence what happens in government at all levels. Time for ‘siddon look ‘ is over.’
