Gani Adams suitable for Aare Ona title – Ifa priest
A prominent Ifa Priest and community leader, High Chief Olayemi Alabi has congratulated leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Gani Adams, on his appointment as Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland.
Alabi, who is the Oluwo of Surulere Kingdom in Lagos State, also congratulated the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, for breaking the 19-year vacuum on the prestigious title.
He said the nomination of Adams as the 15th Aare Ona Kankanfo is a divine blessing for the Yorubas.
“Otunba Gani Adams possesses all the qualities required of that position and it is glaring he has the blessings of Olodumare.
“His emergence is coming at the most important time in the history of the Yorubas. His tenure will bring a lot of good things to Yorubaland,” he said.
Alabi added: “The Aare Ona Kakanfo-elect has always been at the forefront of the fight for the course of the Yoruba people.
“He truly deserves this honour. He is a man with a heart of steel and with the support of all Yorubas, he will succeed.
“My personal experience from my relationship with Otunba Adams leaves me with no doubt that he is the perfect choice for the position.”
Alabi, widely called Yemi Abore, prayed for longer life and peaceful reign for Alaafin.
