Business magnate, Chief Adebutu Kessington, at the weekend said the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, a title bestowed on Mr. Gani Adams absolutely befits him, adding that he is eminently qualified considering his antecedents.

The Lotto boss, popularly referred to as Baba Ijebu, said Adams has started the work in earnest, and prayed for a successful tenure for the Generalismo of Yoruba land whom he charged to be conscious of the fact that he is the Aare Ona Kakanfo of the entire Yoruba land and not of a town or city.

According to him, a number of people were considered for the title but the choice of Adams fits perfectly.
“In my opinion, the Aare Ona Kakanfo title befits Adams considering his antecedent. Quite a number of people have been considered before the ball eventually fell in his court and i pray that his tenure will be successful, Adebutu prayed.

Meanwhile, Adams has given insight into how he intends to function as the Yoruba Generalissimo.
Speaking at the palace of Olu of Ilaro, Oba Kehinde Gbadewole, at the weekend, he said he intended to work with traditional rulers and everybody that he needs to work with to ensure the unity of Yoruba race and progress of the country at large.

Insisting that he will do “everything within my power to ensure this,” Adams said he was one of the people who played major roles in the fight for the enthronement of democracy enjoyed in the country, adding that nothing is too much to do for the sustenance of the hard earned process.

He said he intends to use the advantage the position is offering to foster unity among the people to enable progress because according to him” little could be achieved in the face of disunity and injustice”
