Economic recession still manageable – Fasehun

Founder and President of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), Dr Federick Fasehun, yesterday spoke on the lessons learnt by Yoruba on marginalisation  of descendants of Oduduwa in Federal Government’s  key positions, despite the support of the Southwest for the administration.

Yorubas have learnt useful lessons on marginalisation, says Fasehun

He said the recession is manageable in spite of the present challenges, and hoped that Nigeria would not fall into depression.

Fasehun spoke in an interview in Lagos when the OPC honoured some Nigerians. According to him, the Yorubas will not be like the “mad dog” that barks all the time, but will take calculated steps to make its position known on the state of affairs of Nigeria.

Fasehun said the Yorubas are keenly looking forward to the next election, adding that ”The Yoruba have learnt a big lesson for what happened in the last administration, as well as the current government. We have assisted other ethnic groups to get to power and that struggle has not been appreciated.

“But, we have recorded it. But, as a decent race, we will not be like the ‘mad dog’ that barks all the time. We do not have to criticise the government all the time.Yorubas have taken everything in their stride from the people doing the damage to us.

“We will learn how to react and we look forward to the next general elections,” he said.

Fasehun added  that the OPC decided to honour some Nigerians, who are not Yoruba, as evidence that the group is interested in defending the rights of all.
