Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos, says he is in support of the emergence of Gani Adams as Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland.

Ambode made this known on Tuesday when Adams, who is the national coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), paid him a courtesy call.

The governor said he was delighted when the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, announced Adams as the Aare Ona Kakanfo.

“Let me say that you have our support for your installation and beyond. We will work with you for the unity of Yorubaland and Nigeria in general,” he said

In his address, Adams said he paid a visit to the Lagos house to formally introduce himself as the aare Ona kakanfo-designate and invite him to his installation, which is scheduled to hold at Durbar Stadium in Oyo town, Oyo state, on Saturday.

He said the time had come for all Yoruba sons and daughters to unite for the progress of the race.

“Whatever happened in the past, we should put behind us and move ahead as one. Without unity, we cannot progress. We need ourselves moving forward,” he said.

He praised Ambode for the “developmental projects” carried out since his assumption of office over two years ago.

Adams urged Ambode to champion the promotion of the development agenda for Western Nigeria Commission and the ideals of the Oodua Group of Companies.
