25 People Contested Against Me To Become Aare Ona Kakanfo And I Defeated Them – Gani Adams
The Aare Ona Kakanfo of the Yoruba, Gani Adams, has said 25 influential Yoruba indigenes contested for the position which he won.
Speaking at a special thanksgiving service marking his successful installation at the Genesis parish of the church at Alakuko in Lagos, Adams said a top pastor of Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) predicted his victory as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo.
The Aare reiterated his commitment to the development of Yoruba cultural values and identity. He said he was the least richest among those who contested for the title.
According to him, his victory is “an imposition on all of them by the Almighty God”.
Adams said: “Genesis Pastor Israel Ogundipe predicted my emergence as the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land. That is one of the reasons I respect him as a man of God.
“He was at my former office at Palm Groove and he made three predictions, all of which came to pass in less than two weeks. I saw humility and the holiness of God in him. He is one of the few pastors I respect.
