The Are Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, has acknowledged the strategic position of Osun State in Yoruba affairs. He said yesterday in Osogbo,the state capital,that he is interested in the September 22 governorship election because Yoruba interest is involved.
He spoke at the IleriOluwa Campaign Organization, when he paid a courtesy visit to the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola.
Adams said he admired the virtuous characters of the incumbent governor, Mr. Rauf Areegbesola and of Oyetola.
He promised support for the APC candidate because of “Yoruba interest.”
He warned that the Yoruba agenda must not be politicized under any guise and for whatever reason.
Responding, Oyetola expressed gratitude to Adams for the visit.
He corroborated the strategic position of Osun in Yorubaland, saying values for which Yoruba are known must not be allowed to die.
He promised to use his office when he becomes the governor to promote culture and tradition of the race.
Oyetola maintained that he would ensure that the progress recorded by the Rauf Aregbesola in many sectors of the economy does not suffer a set back,adding that he would break new grounds that would be the pride of the Yoruba .
