Former Vice-President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has commended the Alaafin of Oyo over his nomination of a new Are Ona Kakanfo.
The Waziri Adamawa, in a press statement signed by his media office on Wednesday, 18 October, noted that the appointment of Otunba Gani Adams as the new Kakanfo is a call to national duty.
“In an age when cultural values are increasingly being forgotten, the new Are Ona Kakanfo has a responsibility to promote the rich cultural values of the Yoruba people.
“I know Otunba Gani Adams to be a man of deep philosophical leaning. I know he is capable of shouldering the responsibilities that come with the the office and I wish him success as he undertakes those.”
Atiku urges the Are Ona Kakanfo to use the privilege of his higher calling to promote the unity of Nigeria and to continue to be a good ambassador of the Yoruba people.
