So now OPC dey fight OPC. Nothing wey man no go hear/see for my country Nigeria.
Some state chairmen of the Odua Peoples Congress, OPC, have asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to investigate the factional leader of the group, Otumba Gani Adams.
The members, who accused Adams of financial immodesty, also called on the EFCC to investigate some aides of Adams such as Ogunshola Olugbade and Femi Felix, who they referred to as his fronts.
They spoke on Sunday during a media briefing in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
We also call on President Muhammadu Buhari and the EFCC to investigate all Gani Adams banks accounts; Ogunshola Olugbade’s account as well as Femi Felix account from February to November 2015.
“Moreso, President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration should give very closed monitoring to the bank and industry sectors because how can someone within a month save more than a billion in an account without any alarm from the bankers?”
The Kwara State OPC boss further said Adams was not financially transparent to members of the organization.
Olanrewaju said, “Adams promised our members that if Jonathan released money, each member will get between N200,000 and N250,000 as empowerment. When Jonathan released N1.6bn through Musiliu Obanikoro, for that empower, there was nothing to show for it.
“He should explain how Jonathan’s money was spent. Before the election, there was a publication by a former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress now Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed that Adams had collected N9bn from Jonathan to disorganize the Yoruba race. We denied that but later we came to the realization that truly he collected the money.
“At the first meeting after the election, he told us that he spent N800m on OPU outside the country. Where did he get the money? He also bought some properties. After the election, he went to London to establish Odua Voice Radio, which cost him thousands of dollars. Where did he get the money from if he did not collect N9bn from Jonathan?” According to the Kwara OPC boss, Adams collected $22m from a former leader of Libya, late Muammar Gaddafi. He further alleged that Libyans had been demanding for the refund of the money.
“Adams should explain how Jonathan’s money was spent. We demand immediate reaction to the allegation of $22m Gadaffi money. He should show to the world the registration certificate of Olokun Festival Foundation, Oodua Economic Empowerment Initiative and that of Oodua Voice Radio,” Olanrewaju said.
