President of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), Dr. Frederick Fasehun has charged Nigerians to be vigilant, as he said the current spate of insurgents and terrorism have turned Nigeria into a nightmare.
The Founder of the OPC said efforts should gear toward preventing the terrorists from spreading their tentacles to other parts of the country.
Dr. Fasehun spoke at the inauguration of 29 newly appointed members into the National Executive Council of OPC at the Century Hotel, Okota.
He said, in view of the level of insurgency ravaging the Norh Eastern part of the country, “This time calls for men and women whom our people can look up to as a refuge of security in case the unexpected happens”.
He said “OPC must be vigilant. By the grace and mercy of God, terrorism will not rule Yoruba land and Nigeria”.
The OPC leader warned them not to see their elevation to the new positions as licence for criminality and greed as exhibited by the previously dissolved executive members.
On the political front, Fasehun said the new leadership will sit together and give directions to the organisation on the candidates members of the Congress would be supporting at the States and National levels in the coming elections.
