I’m not afraid to die – 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams speaks!
Leader of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) , Otunba Gani Adams who was recently announced by the Alaafin of Oyo as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, has said he’s ready to bear the new title without any fear of death irrespective of the myth behind his new title.
Adams, who spoke yesterday in Lagos explained that his new title had placed a fatherly role on him as such he must be seen to be in good accord with all and move forward the Yoruba race.
He also revealed that he had earlier taken 52 chieftaincy titles before the new one. He said: “the attribute is not about wealth but about the ability to lead and I have over six million people supporting me in the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC). I have charity organizations that help the people. I spend over N250, 000 everyday on the people and I am not poor although I may not be as wealthy as the late Chief MKO Abiola when he bagged the title.
“I am now 47 years-old and old enough to rule the nation. So, the Aare Ona Kakanfo is a position I can bear very well with the support of God and the people.”
