The chairman of House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts and APC senatorial candidate for Lagos West has said that the protest led by Mr. Gani Adams faction of Odua People Congress, OPC that disrupted the economic activities of Lagos state and destroyed APC posters under Police security is akin to going on a slave errand as a slave.
Speaking to the Conference of Ward chairmen of APC in his office on the disruptive and destructive protest against INEC chairman Professor Attahiru Jega and support for President Goodluck Jonathan, Hon. Adeola said the protest by a faction of the ethnic militia was against the interest of Yoruba people in the South West adding that no true Yoruba son or daughter would support any administration that completely excludes its people from all the commanding political positions in the running of the affairs of this nation.
Hon. Adeola recalled that during the travails of the factional OPC leader under military rule and PDP led Federal Government before his new found pipeline security contract awarding ‘ Abuja friends’, leaders of the progressives in Yoruba land had come to his rescue in several life sustaining ways adding that it is now clear that Adams is pursuing his personal interest against Yoruba interest as attested to by many founding members of OPC who have dissociated themselves from his personal economic pursuit.
The APC senatorial candidate for the largest senatorial district in Nigeria reminded Adams of the historical consequences of biting the fingers that fed him in his time of need adding that majority of Yoruba people who are noted for pursuit of equity, fair play and justice would continue in that line irrespective of few individuals running slave errands for personal enrichment.
Hon. Adeola called on the ward chairmen to remain steadfast in their control of the grassroots for the party to end 16 years of PDP rule that has destroyed all sector of the economy adding that the change that APC is championing is in the interest of the Yoruba race and the nation.
Earlier on the chairman of the over 185 members Conference of APC Ward Chairmen in Lagos West Senatorial District Alhaji Tunde Afolabi commended Hon. Adeola for being a true representative of his people over his 12 years as a legislator as well as his role in exposing national corruption through his public accounts committee in the House of Representatives.
