Why OPC Supported Jonathan For 2nd Term, By Gani Adams

National coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Otunba Gani Adams has explained why the congress gave former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan its support in the run-off to the last presidential poll

Speaking in Ile Ife during the second World Congress of Oodua Peoples Union, OPU, Otunba Adams also added that the fact that OPC worked for the success of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate during the election does not make the organisation a partisan one.

According to him, the position of OPC at the time was based on principle and the conviction that Dr. Jonathan was sincere about implementing the report of Confab where position of Yoruba people regarding some sensitive national issues was properly marshalled by the delegates.

His words: “Let me say it clearly that we supported the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan purely on principle of true federalism and towards the implementation of the outcome of 2014 National confab in Abuja, if he emerges as the president in 2015.”
