SECURITY:Gani Adams is obstructing justice – Yoruba Women

Onadeko and Adams

South-West women on Monday accused the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, of threatening peace and security, obstructing justice, distorting facts and embarking on a campaign of blackmail.

‘’We will not fold our arms and allow Gani Adams to rubbish the good name and excellent track record Mrs. Ngozi Onadeko has built over the years’’ the descendants of Oduduwa said.

They also tongue-lashed Adams for his apparent disregard for law.

‘’ Gani Adams and his co-travellers are behaving like a pack of juveniles. They don’t mean well for this country’’

In a statement in Osogbo, the women praised Onadeko for her extraordinary courage and absolute understanding of security issues in Oyo State.

They accused Adams of pushing the real issues aside and employing sentiments and blackmail to explain the security situation in Oyo State.

The notable South-West women expressed delight and satisfaction with the high degree of determination so far exhibited by Onadeko to address the security challenges in Oyo State.

Signed by the Chairperson of Yoruba Women in Government (YWIG), Chief Fumilayo Adesanwo, the women commended the courage and patriotism of Onadeko to rid Oyo State of kidnappers, arsonists and other criminal elements.

The women underscored the shameful show of power, uncivilized tactics and the rights of citizens.

They condemned the uncouth language, arrogant demeanor and use of brute force by Gani Adams and members of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC).

‘’Gani Adams did not put on his thinking garb before calling for the redeployment of the police commissioner. He is misinforming the people’’

Specifically, they took a swipe at the action of the OPC members in Kajola community, Ibarapa North Local Government, describing it as unacceptable.

‘’The solution does not lie in the use of blackmail or force’’

The women further praised Governor Seyi Makinde for protecting the lives and property of the people of Oyo State

They also urged the Inspector General of Police and the Police Service Commission to ignore Gani Adams.

‘’The South-West people are solidly behind Mrs. Ngozi Onadeko. We are very proud of her. She has given good account of herself in Oyo State’’ the statement added

Build independent power supply, rail system across southwest, Adams urges govs

Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams yesterday urged all the southwest governors to build an independent power supply and rail system that will link the entire region.

Adams made the new call-in Epe, Lagos State, during the 2020 edition of Grandmothers’ Festival, organized by the Olokun Festival Foundation.

The Aare Onakakanfo highlighted the need for uninterrupted power supply across the region, saying the new initiative will enhance commerce, tourism and drive the desired development across the southwest.

He pointed out that issues of security, power, and transportation are most critical to the development of a nation, urging the governors to look forward to creating a conducive atmosphere for investors in the southwest.

“All over the world, businesses thrive where the security and safety of the citizens are guaranteed.

“Stable and uninterrupted power supply is key to the development of every nation. In South Africa for example, the transportation system is amazing because of the effective rail stations between Johannesburg to Pretoria.

“Nigeria is a great nation, our leaders travel abroad and they see the kind of development spreading across the United Kingdom, America, Asia and Africa.

“With the passage of Amotekun bill this week, I am fulfilled that part of our dreams have been realised.

” This is a victory for all Nigerians. It is our victory in the southwest because 25 per cent of residences in Lagos and other southwest states are non- indigenes.

“In the southwest, we have all it takes to set the pace for the development of our region. That is why it is very important for everybody to brace up for the take-off of that laudable project”

In his remarks, the Oloja and Paramount of Epe Kingdom, Oba Kamorudeen Animashaun applauded Aare Gani Adams for spreading the gospel of cultural transformation to Epe.

The monarch said Epe traditional institution has always been supportive of any initiative that can boost Yoruba culture and tradition. He, however, urged members of the OPC to be focused on sustaining the core values of the Organization.

“I commend Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, for promoting our cultural identity and heritage. Aare has made a strong impact in Yorubaland and he will always remain a key player in the progress of our race” he said.

The guest lecturer from Lagos State University, Associate professor, Kolade Adams, implored the guests to emulate the unyielding spirit of the chief promoter of the Olokun Festival Foundation, and the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Adams, in sustaining the festival for over a decade.

“This is eco-tourism, it is usually one of the best means to improve the tourism potentials of every country. So what we are doing today, will definitely translate to improving the economic prosperity of Epe and its environs”

Aare Gani Adams also urged the Lagos state government to continue the development process embarked upon by the last administration.

“We can all testify to the various infrastructural developments around the town. The highlight of this transformation was the construction of modern roads in the town, making it a city of pride for all and sundry.

“Thanks to the former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode for bringing development to the doorsteps of the people of the ancient town”

“We cannot rule it out that Epe had enjoyed the unprecedented transformation in Lagos during the Ambode government”.

“Ambode’s Midas’ touch and influence was visible with the present infrastructure in Epe.”

Epe has also turned out to be one of the emerging stories of a visionary government. So, with Governor Olusola Sanwo- Olu on the saddle in the state, I know Lagos is up to the task.”It now behoves on the new government in the state to ensure that all these projects are completed in due time” he said

Other monarchs present at the event, include: Oba Shefiu Adewale Bangbopa, the Olu of Epe Fiwagboye Aareonakakanfo, Chief Ebudola Odedina, OPU member in Italy, Titi Hassan, and Epe Council of Chiefs, members of the National Executive Council, and. National Coordinating Council among others.
