Election 2015 – The OPC leader, and the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Chief Gani Adams, has said the group is not supporting any of the presidential candidates contesting for the 2015 Presidential election that will hold on February 14 election.
Chief Gani Adams, who was represented by the Assistant General Secretary of the group, Lasun Ogunfowokan, made this statement in Ile Ife on Friday at the sideline of a quiz organized by the OPC for students in Osun State.
He stated that the group was not supporting President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammad Buahari (retd.) and other contestants.
Adams added that his faction of OPC was not partisan and would not support any of the candidates against the others.
“We are not partisan. The OPC led by Chief Gani Adams is made up of freedom fighters. We are not supporting any of the presidential candidates.
“But we are calling on all our members and other Nigerians to go and collect their permanent voter cards to enable them to participate in the general elections.” he said.
He also urged the Yoruba people to be united and shun politics of bitterness for development to continue in the region.
Speaking earlier at the quiz, he lamented on the way some Yoruba were relegating the language to the background, saying this could endanger the existence and usage of the Yoruba culture.
