OPC Empowers Members

The Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, has  empowered its members through a poverty  alleviation and empowerment programme held at the OPC secretariat, Agodo, Ikotun,  Lagos.

Speaking at the occasion, president/founder of the OPC, Dr. Fredrick Fasehun, said  the OPC in collaboration with Unity Bank and Imperial Finance and Securities Limited   put in place measures necessary to fight poverty.

He added that they are giving out motorcycles, tricycles and loans to lift its  members out of joblessness and poverty.

Also speaking, the vice president of the OPC, Otunba Kazeem Badmus, said the gesture  is not for members in Lagos State alone, as they would be taking the empowerment  programme to all the South Western states and other states where the OPC exists.

“It is to show that the OPC is a responsible organisation with good plans for its  members,” Badmus said.

OPC members were also implored to embrace the opportunity given to them to insure  themselves against poverty, while the families of Mr. Gafari Oyesoga, who died in  active service were presented a cheque of N180,000.  Badmus appealed to the members  to always remain peaceful.
