AARE ONAKAKANFO (OTUNBA GANI ADAMS) OFFICIAL VISIT TO SOUTH AFRICA

Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams is a man of many parts; a visionary leader, a charismatic political activist, a reliable champion of rights of the masses, an embodiment of political morality and an epitome of humility.

He is also a well-known traditionalist to the core, and above all a God fearing leader who believes in Christianity, Islam and Traditional Religions. The Almighty God who knew the roles destined for him to play on earth brought him into the world through a union of two great families of Pa Lamidi Adams and Late Madam Dada Adams, nee Aduloju.

It is breath-taking to know that Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams steers the ships of these viable and development-oriented organizations. One of them is the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), a socio-cultural organization that was established in 1994 to champion the course of the Yoruba race following the iniquitous annulment of the June 12, 1993, presidential election by the erstwhile military despot, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida. Among its major objectives are: to protect the interest of the Yoruba people in the nation-state called Nigeria; to fight for justice for the oppressed Nigerian’s; to agitate for a genuine federalism in Nigeria; and to clamor for and support self-determination struggle in all ramifications.
