I’m not backing Daniel — Fasehun

By Gbenga Akanmu
LAGOS—DOCTOr Fredrick Fasehun, Founder and leader of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), has said his support for peace in Yorubaland necessitated his comments on the on-going political crisis in Ogun State and not because he supports any of the factions as being suggested in some circles.

Fasehun who was speaking with newsmen in Lagos yesterday said those who said he was taking sides with Governor Gbenga Daniel got it all wrong, adding “I don’t want commotion or disruption in any part of Yorubaland”.

He maintained that if a conflagration is about to happen in Ogun State and you don’t criticize it to bring the attention of the people to it or raise an alarm to alert the people, it may spill over to other adjoining states.

“I am concerned; I love the peace in Yorubaland in particular that is why I am warning the people. I am not taking sides with anybody; I am not partisan in my views, when I see a commotion I have to cry out”.

He also commended the Lagos State House of Assembly for the town hall initiative, noting that “since they came there had been no commotion, conflict or disagreement which is why the state is progressing.

“Lagos State has become an example to be emulated by other states in the country and I want that to happen all over Yorubaland”, Fasehun said.
