The crisis rocking the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) is getting messier, as the National Coordinator of the organisation, Gani Adams, and its factional leader, Adesina Akinpelu, accused each other of certificate racketeering.

A mercenary was alleged to have written the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) for Adams.

The OPC General Secretary, Tanimowo Babajide, had described Akinpelu as an ingrate in a statement while reacting on behalf of Adams to an allegation by Akinpelu that Adams collected N1.6 billion from President Goodluck Jonathan without fulfilling the promise of delivering six million votes for the President in the March 28 poll.

According to Babajide, “Akinpelu is an ingrate; this is a man who was almost at graveside in year 2000 when he had terminal disease.

“It was Otunba Gani Adams that took him to Ola-Oki Medical Centre in Badadry where he was admitted for more than three months. The medical bill was paid by Otunba Gani Adams.

“Besides, Otunba Gani Adams sent him to International School of Aviation some years after his recovery. That is the only school certificate he can be proud of in life,” Babajide added.
