Editor’s note: Nigerians are used to kvetching about all and everything but there are still some uniques who appreciate those dedicating their lives to the public benefit and Gani Adams is one of them.

Mr Adams is a Nigerian social activist, politician and the leader of a faction of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC),  a secessionist and nationalist organisation based in Nigeria, which supports a sovereign state for the Yoruba people.

Abdulahi Sanni has contacted Naij.com to express his gratitude for Mr Adams’ commitment to his people and exerting every effort to unite the Yorubas all around the world.

I love this man

I see him as a peace loving someone. He’s now a refined and reformed cultural activist per excellence. He has repackaged OPC and moved this organisation to a very serious cultural revolution group with a lot of activities mostly on a daily basis.

I have been monitoring this man for over a decade ago, OPC under his leadership has become what people can be reckoned with. Although I disagree with his political stand during the last general elections but he had come out to cleared air on it.

He gave a lot of reasons for supporting Goodluck Jonathan base on GEJ’s promised to implement the outcome of 2014 National Confab. The reasons which I think are very reasonable, expecially the reason why Nigeria should be restructured, as the only solution to the lingering crises which we are witnessing in Nigeria.

He’s now moving from one country to another making sure the Yorubas in diaspora are all united through the formation of Oodua Progressive Union(OPU), an organisation present in over seventy countries.

Let’s give it to this man

He deserves to be honoured, he deserves to be commended by the the Yorubas. Day by day, you will see his members selling all his activities to the entire world. OPC members will do theirs in thier own way, same as OPU members but despite all his efforts, some Yorubas does not love him just because of their selfish agenda.

He’s very close to the Christian and Muslim families despite his cultural struggle and belief. If our brothers in the north can emulate this kind of gestures, the sky would have been the limit. These incessant in killings the name of Boko Haram would have become things of the past.

When our brothers are busy killing and maiming our people here in the north, Gani Adams is propagating Yoruba cultural heritage values, engaging his members in cultural activities, as well as uniting those in the overseas. Using what he has to get what he needs.

I look forward to meet him one day. Adams should continue the good work for the Yoruba race. Let’s give it to him.

Historical reference

Oodua Peoples Congress was formed in 1994 as a socio-cultural group to promote Yoruba people and culture.

As the founding member and National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Gani rose to nationwide popularity after Inspector General of Police Musiliu Smith declared him wanted in 2000 with a financial reward of N100,000 for his group’s involvement in violent clashes.

He was, however, arrested on 22 August 2001 but was later released after being held in prisons in Lagos, Abeokuta and Abuja.
