Fasehun’s OPC embraces Sanwo-Olu


Even as it is not yet sure who the Gani Adams-led Oodua People Congress side is supporting in the governorship race in Lagos State, the OPC led by the late Fredrick Fasheun declared support for the All Progressives Congress’ Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday.
Leaders of the congress, led by the deputy president, Wasiu Afolabi, made the move when they visited the Independent Campaign Organisation (ICG) office at Oduduwa Crescent, GRA, Ikeja, for a meeting with Sanwo-Olu; Campaign Manager Tayo Ayinde; his deputy, Cardinal James Odunmbaku and other committee members, said the interest of the Yoruba race remained paramount to OPC.
Afolabi said, “We have the power to vote; we have the power to defend the votes. These two objectives we will accomplish.
“Let it be known that in the formation of the OPC by Dr. Fredrick Iseotan Fasehun, the National Leader of APC played a role. We are proud to be back home.
“Fasehun had put his differences with Asiwaju Tinubu aside. But he died when the group was about to finalise the agreement with him. We have resolved to cooperate with Asiwaju Tinubu. We will deliver the whole of the Southwest in the next elections. I have to thank our leaders who made this possible – Afolabi Salami and Olalekan Akintade.”
Sanwo-Olu thanked the OPC leadership for the endorsement and assured them that they would not regret voting for him.
