Former governor of Ogun State and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), national chairmanship aspirant, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has described the conferment of the chieftaincy title of Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland on the National Coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams as God-ordained.
The decision of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi in picking Otunba Adams as the new Generalissimo after about 20 years of wait, the former governor said, is divine and a sacredly delayed act in order to choose the anointed one.
In his message signed by his Media Officer, Ayo Giwa, Daniel stated that with the appointment of Otunba Adams as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo designate, “the Yoruba race is in pole position to take its rightful place in the comity of regions that made up our nation, Nigeria.”
The appointment, he stressed has embedded the name of Otunba Adams as one of the foremost Yoruba men of our era and a man of history.
“The courage, bravery and patriotic acts in the areas of promotion of culture values, security and overall development of Yoruba nation are the exemplary virtues of Otunba Adams that stood him out as a true son of Oduduwa who the region needs at this particular moment of our national history.”
He then pray God to grant Otunba Adams the wisdom of Solomon in his new role as the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland as he carries the sociocultural responsibilities of the region.
