The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, on Thursday, assured that Oodua Peoples Congress would remain committed to its primary responsibility of keeping Yorubaland safe from external aggression.
Adams, who is also the National Coordinator of the group, then charged the leadership of OPC, especially in Osun State, to embark on membership recruitment and training of the new recruits to get them properly integrated into the group’s setup.
Speaking further at the Osun OPC state congress held in Osogbo, Adams, who urged both old and new members to stick to the ideology of the group, also challenged them to eschew infighting for them to be able to perform their duties as security operatives.
He said, “I urge you all not to forget the ideology of OPC, our commitment is to ensure that external forces never invade or outrun the Yoruba people. This is the foundation of OPC and we must remain faithful to it.
“As genuine OPC members in Osun, you must support the new Coordinator with a view to ensure that the group remains committed to its ideology.
“We must collectively protect OPC from both internal and external acrimony, doing this amount to protecting Yorubaland. Continue to mobilise more members and instill in them our ideology.”
He also called for commitment, discipline and dedication to duties and assured that the group would continue to work for a more secure Yoruba land where people can work and earn a legitimate income.
