The embattled National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams, is against former Governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu because of selfish reasons, Kwara state factional coordinator, OPC, Morauf Olarewaju has claimed.

About a fortnight ago, Mr. Olarewaju and no few than seven other states coordinator denounced their membership Gani Adams-led OPC.

The Kwara state coordinator of OPC added that the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) played prominent role in thewedding ceremony of the OPC leader.
Olarewaju said: “Gani Adams believes in violence. He will never support a futuristic person. He will never support anybody that does not buy his ideas. He sees himself as lord and he believes he is above every other person.

“It is unfortunate that he is fighting Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We told him time without numbers that the former governor of Lagos state has etched his name in the sand of time. Senator Tinubu has been a public figure before notoriety brought Gani Adams to limelight. In
1993, Tinubu was elected a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, whereas Gani Adams was an ‘Okada’ rider.
“I can recall that during Gani Adams’ wedding, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu played prominent role. Gani Adams told me that two weeks before the wedding, the former governor gave him (Gani Adams) N1 million, two days to the marriage another N1 million and a day after the wedding another N1 million.
“What else does Gani Adams want this progressive-minded man to do? He said given his status in Lagos state and the entire Yoruba land, Tinubu ought to have empowered him by building about five petrol stations for him.
“At the Olumo festival last year in Abeokuta (Ogun state), Otunba Adams said that ‘Nigeria learnt about true federalism from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, but that Tinubu changed suddenly.’ He added that he used to see Tinubu as an hero. He claimed that Tinubu deviated from his previous ideology by joining the northern cabal and that he (Gani) had his future to protect as he needs money.
“You will realize that through his actions and utterances, Gani Adams is fighting Tinubu because of money. He expects Tinubu to hand over his life savings to Gani Adams.
“So also, Gani Adams has disrespect for former President OlusegunObasanjo. Gani Adams sees himself as the leader of Yoruba race. He is disrespectful to elders. He added that if Tinubu does not accord him recognition he (Tinubu) would not emerge as Yoruba leader. Can Gani Adams make anybody Yoruba leader? Who is he?”
