You voted for change, don’t complain about hardship – Fasehun tells Nigerians

The founder of Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Dr Fredrick Fasehun, has charged Nigerians to stop complaining about the present economic hardship in the country since it was them that voted for change.


Speaking in an interview with Newsmen, he enjoined Nigerians to accept their fate with equanimity and be ready to endure whatever comes with their choice. Fasehun further stated that rather than complain, they should pray for President Muhammadu Buhari.

His words, “Nigerians voted for Buhari. They voted for change. The hard­ship and suffering they are going through now is part of that change. They should not be complaining.

“Instead of complaining, they should be praying for Buhari. Ni­gerians should pray for him, and for Buhari himself Nigerians were cheering him initially but now they are getting despondent. Buhari should not wait until Nigerians start jeering at him as a result of failed promises.”

The OPC founder, who asserted that the Buhari administration was far from meeting his expectations, said, “Hard­ship and suffering have increased. Many Nigerians today are hungry and angry. Even now, the rich also cry. The bad economy has wors­ened the situation with many Ni­gerians finding it increasingly dif­ficult to survive. The situation can’t continue like this, government must find a remedy.

“Power supply has not been encour­aging. Many industries are closing down while millions of jobs are be­ing lost to erratic power supply.

“Many Nigerians that are self-em­ployed including artisans like weld­ers, hair dressers and others who depend on efficient power supply to sustain their small scale ventures have been rendered jobless as a result of poor power supply. This has been a big minus on the part of the admin­istration. Increasing unemployment and job losses occasioned by poor power supply should be a source of concern to the president and his team.”



  1. sir,you are still smarting from the defeat of your hero and benefactor, GEJ. PMB is not ready to renew dubious pipelines protection contract.

  2. Fasheun is a bad man yes we asked for a change. to liberate us from thieves like you Agba oponu elenu mari maje your day of shame is at hand

  3. Nothing good comes easily… Nigerians should be patient… The change will come but it requires sacrifices, which is the hardship were facing at the moment.

  4. It is clear that this govt have no solution to the economic problems facing this country. Really, nigerians did not vote for apc rather apc won the election due to their violent and propaganda and threats to lives and property of nigerians. E.g monkey and baboon will be soaked in blood if apc lose the election.

  5. No matter the pains we go through, we far are better off compare with the reckless looting under your mentor. Soon the EFCC will get to your shady pipeline contract. Receiver of stolen items. Shameless old man.

  6. This old fool Faseun is still living in the tragic era of Jonathan where people like him can get dubious pipeline contract,with which they loot the public fund
