The Are Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Otunba Gani Adams has stated that his people of the Southwest will support any presidential candidate who is truly committed to the peaceful coexistence of Nigerians in all facets of national life.


He made this statement when a former Governor of Ogun State and the Deputy Director General/Chairman, (South) of the PDP presidential campaign Council, Otunba Gbenga Daniel led a team of some stakeholders in the Southwest geopolitical zone to pay a courtesy call on Adams at his Lagos residence on Saturday.

He emphasised that restructuring is very key in Nigeria’s march towards nationhood, and a candidate who preaches this as one of his core agenda in the coming election will be considered above others.

According to him, “The coming election will be based on ideologies rather than partisanship or sentiments as it was in the past.”

Adams, who is also the national coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), revealed how Otunba Daniel averted what could have been a bloody scenario in the Yorubaland when two factions of the group were enmeshed in a battle of supremacy some years back.

He recalled that it was Daniel who waded into the matter and established a lasting truce between the leaders and members of the two factions forestalling what could have snowballed into violent unrest.

In his response, Daniel thanked the Are Ona Kakanfo for the warm reception, words of encouragement and support.

He stated that a situation where the Yoruba people appear not to be getting it right in the governance of the country especially at the centre was one of the reasons he got involved in national politics which took him around the country on about three occasions.

He assured that he is convinced of the electoral promises of Atiku Abubabar who he described as “a thorough and visionary politician who is so passionate about the Nigerian project, a lover of the Yoruba people, an honest and true Nigerian who will not say what he could not do”.
