The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) says it has no connection with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former Lagos Governor Bola Tinubu and Ekiti Governor Kayode Fayemi
Publicity Secretary, Yinka Oguntimehin said the organization was not involved with a “Mega Accord of 57 civil society groups rooting for southwest presidential candidate”.
In a statement on Monday, he said those who dropped the name of OPC during a meeting at the weekend were engaging in fraud.
We are aware that when elections are approaching, some politicians usually use the OPC’s name to curry favours.
“There are some groups that are affiliates of political parties that usually make themselves available for politicians as at when due.”
Oguntimehin told the public that those masquerading as OPC members have no known ideals, programmes or activities.
“Even if an angel emerges the president of this nation today, without restructuring, nothing will change for the better.
“Our position on the future of Nigeria is clearly stated in our belief in restructuring. That is why we root for regionalism as the best option for peace and stability.”
