OPC leader denies collecting money from Ghaddafi, Jonathan

20 February 2016, 11:03

Lagos - National Leader of the Odua People’s Congress (OPC), Gani Adams has denied allegations by some members of his group that he collected the sum of $22 million from late Libyan President, Muammar Gaddafi, N9 billion from former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan and N1.6 billion from former Minister of State, Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro.

He also denied that he disrespected Yoruba traditional rulers or acted against the laws of the land.

It will be recalled that some former State Coordinators of the group were recently dismissed from the Congress for acts bordering on indiscipline, anti-congress activities and outright corruption.

The expelled State Coordinators include Maruff Olanrewaju Salami of Kwara State as well as Adeagbo Musediq and Rotimi Akinsonwon Oyo and Ondo coordinators respectively.

The members, who accused Adams of financial immodesty, also called on the EFCC to investigate some aides of Adams such as Ogunshola Olugbade and Femi Felix, who they referred to as his ‘fronts.’
