Vice President, Osinbajo with Akeredolu, Fayemi grace OPC founder’s funeral
VIA Trends  - Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday attended the funeral of late Dr Frederick Fasehun, the founder of Oodua Peoples Congress(OPC) at the Cathedral Church of Saint Stephen, Oke-Aluko, Ondo, Ondo State.
The OPC chieftain passed on Dec. 1 at the Intensive Care Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja (LASUTH).
Osinbajo was accompanied to the service by Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, Gov. Kayode Fayemi, among others.
Former governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko was also in attendance.
In his tribute, Osinbajo said it was a great honour to be at the service to express his own condolence on behalf of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Government of Nigeria.
He said that Fasehun was exceptional in everything he did as he was medical doctor, a sociologist as well as a versatile acupuncturist.
“He studied acupuncture in 1977; and set up the very first acupuncture centre in Africa at LASUTH.
“ He was such a brilliant medical doctor; one would have thought that he would just restrict himself to practice of medicine.
“Of course, many of us know he was the proprietor of Bestcare Hospital, which catered for the poor; so many people were able to receive medical attention.
“But beyond that, I think that what he will always be remembered for is what he did with the OPC; of course, many of us know about the struggle.
