Gani Adams Reveals Why He Was Appointed 'Aare Ona Kakanfo'
“I am not as wealthy as the last Aare Ona Kakanfo, but the structure I have today with six million followers is something that cannot be wished away.
“I am going to be a bridge-builder and promote the unity of the Yoruba race. I will reach out to people who will help to move the Yoruba race. I am going to reach out to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other Yoruba leaders.”
The new Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, said this in Lagos while speaking with newsmen on Tuesday.
Describing himself as a human rights fighter, Adams, who is the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, added that he would reach out to a former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and other Yoruba leaders.
He said contrary to popular belief, the title is not a death knell for anybody chosen as the Aare Ona Kakanfo.
“Most men given the title were war generals. The myth that all the Aare Ona Kakanfo ended in tragedy is not true. We shouldn’t allow such a myth to cast a shadow on the good office of the Aare Ona Kakanfo.
“I am a fighter. You must understand that death is a product of God. I have been fighting for many years and will work to promote the Yoruba agenda,” he added.
