Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has hailed the appointment of the leader of the Oodua People’s Congress, Chief Gani Adams, as the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland as a deserved one.
Aregbesola, who said Adams deserved the title of the new generalissimo of seen and unseen native forces of the Yoruba race, said this in Iwo on Sunday at the 50th birthday ceremony of his Special Adviser on Information, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon.
Aregbesola said, “Some of us don’t know the nativity of Gani Adams, but I know the nativity of Gani Adams. I went to secondary school where he was born. I share a lot with him and I am happy that from far away Arigidi Akoko, Gani Adams has become the generalissimo of Yorubaland, both seen and unseen native armed forces.
“When I look at the circumstances of your emergence, definitely you are worthy of this title. I salute you!”
