President and Founder of Oodua Peoples’ Congress, a Yoruba Socio-Economic Organisation, Frederick Fasehun, has announced his retirement from partisan politics and civil rights activism.

Fasehun, National Chairman of the Unity Party of Nigeria and campaigner for the re-election of former President Goodluck Jonathan, announced this at his eightieth birthday in Lagos, saying henceforth he would like to wear the toga of Elder Statesman.

He urged the Federal Government to show commitment to improving education of youths so as to promote unity and curb insecurity.

He commended President Buhari on the fight against corruption but warned against selective probing.

Former Chief Security Officer to late head of state, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamzat Al-Mustapha retired, described Fasehun, as a man with a large heart and a bridge builder.

Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state, stirred a new controversy on the relevance of the Nigerian police in securing Nigerians, saying the Yoruba nation was more protected by members of the Oodua Peoples’ Congress,OPC, than the Police.
