The leaders of Oodua People’s Congress fired their coordinator, Adedeji Aladesawe, in Osun State.
Aladesawe got fired for taking a N35 million bribe from Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who will be the new President. This money was to help him get more people to support him in the upcoming election on February 25th.
Another leader named Adeyemi Aboderin has taken his place. Aladesawe was the boss of OPC in Osun State, but he was told to stop doing that job.
Aboderin took over as OPC Secretary in Osun State after him, and he is now the current Secretary of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Osun State.
On Sunday, the OPC Publicity Secretary, Mr Yinka Oguntimehin, said that Aboderin was chosen for the job by the OPC NEC and the National Coordinating Council.
“The message said.”
Everyone, we want you to know that the National Executive Council has chosen Aboderin Adeyemi to lead the Oodua People’s Congress in the Osun State area.
“The appointment happened because the leaders of OPC want to keep promoting their organization’s basic beliefs.”
When asked, the person in charge of the group in Osun State before said that he was fired by the leader of the whole group because they accused him of taking N35 million from Bola Tinubu, who will become the president, to get people to support him before the last election.
I was taken away with the Oyo State Coordinator, Olumo, and two more people. People called our National Coordinator, Gani Adams, to ask if I really took money from Tinubu before the last presidential election. They said we were accused of doing this.
Someone said that I received N35m and a Jeep from Tinubu before the recent election. I haven’t met Tinubu or any of his helpers before. People said that Olumo and I, who is the Oyo Coordinator, took N35 million and cars.
The National Coordinator took us away without any proof of wrongdoing. We had to promise to tell the truth to the important people in the OPC group to show that we did not do anything wrong.
