National Coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, Otunba Gani Adams was installed as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland by Oba Lamidi Adeyemi on Saturday, January 13, 2018.
The event held at Durbar Stadium, Oyo.
At his thanksgiving service yesterday, Otunba Gani Adams revealed he defeated 25 influential Yoruba people for the position and that a Senior Pastor of the Celestial Church of Christ predicted his emergence as the 15th Aare Ona kakanfo.
Adams, who said he was the least wealthy of the contestants, described his emergence as “an imposition on all of them by the Almighty God.” He said:
“Pastor Israel Ogundipe predicted my emergence as the Aare Ona Kakanfo. 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 which all 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 that I respect.
When we started jostling for the post, I told him to pray along with me and promised him that I would do my thanksgiving in his church if the Lord answered my prayers.”
“25 of us contested for the position and I was the least wealthy among them. The Lord imposed me on all of them.”
Otunba Gani Adams also promised to always use his position as the Aare Ona Kakanfo to promote religious harmony among the people of the Yoruba race.
