The founder of the Odua People’s Congress (OPC), Dr. Frederick Fasheun is at present at loggerheads with the outgoing governor of Lagos, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN).
The trained doctor turned social crusader has dragged the governor and the state government to court over the planned demolition of his property- Century Hotel.
Dr. Fasheun is praying the court to stop the intended demolition by the government because of what he termed as political undertone.
To the OPC leader, it is believed that the governor renewed his interest in the demolition simply because he rigorously campaigned and supported the opposition at the just concluded general elections that saw Gen. Buhari (rtd) and Akinwunmi Ambode emerging as the president and governor-elect.
The OPC leader maintained that the insistent demolition of his property is politically induced and he also claimed that the governor wants to demolish his property because he is a supporter of PDP, political party, and not the governor’s party which is APC.
The case which came up last week at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos has been adjourned till later this month.
