As Aare Ona Kakanfo, Adams Now Ceases To Be OPC Leader – Factional Groups
Leaders of two factional groups within the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), on Monday declared that with his pronouncement as 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi 111, Otunba Gani Adams has ceased to be the leader of OPC.
In a press statement jointly signed by Comrade Rasak Arogundade of New Era OPC and Comrade Dare Adesope of Reformed OPC, which was made available to DAILY POST Monday evening in Ibadan, Arogundade and Adesope insisted that “the position has compulsorily retired Gani Adams as OPC leader.
The groups while commending the Alaafin for pronouncing Adams, who is the National Coordinator of the group, as the new Are Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, also insisted that the process of harmonising all OPC factions had commenced.
They said in the statement that “In as much as we have our reservations with the choice of Adams as the new Aare Ona Kakanfo, we have no doubt in the wisdom of our father, the Alaafin of Oyo.
“We believe it is in the best interest of Yoruba race that Gani Adams, who had hitherto being a cog in the wheel of unity in the OPC has been compensated with the title of Aare to pave way for one OPC.
“The era Fasheun OPC or Gani Adams OPC has gone forever with the new chapter that has just been opened in the history of the group.”
