CONGRATULATION Aare Gani Adams

BALOGUN GENERAL OF YORUBA LAND !

BIOGRAPHY OF OTUNBA GANI ADAMS - the new Aare Ona Kakanfo 15th of Yorubaland.

Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams was born on 30th April, 1970 at Arigidi-Akoko in the present Akoko North-West Local Government Area of Ondo State, Nigeria. He attended many primary schools due to the nature of his fatherís job. He started at the Army Childrenís School, Oturkpo until primary (3) before his father was again transferred to Lagos, where he completed his Primary School Education at Municipal Primary School, Surulere, Lagos in 1980.
He attended Ansar-Ud-deen Secondary School, Randle Avenue, Surulere before he went for furniture making and interior decorating training which he successfully completed in 1987. He was later employed by Italian Construction Company, Visinoni Stabilini, Apapa, Lagos and voluntarily resigned after some spell to establish his own furniture making/Interior decoration business. As a result of the bastardization of the Socio-Political and economic life of the country, Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams became an active Pro-Democracy Activist in 1992, when he pitched his tent with Campaign for Democracy (CD). And he later became the Public Relations Officer of Mushin Local Government Chapter in 1993.
He was a foundation member of Oodua Peopleís Congress (OPC) when it was formed in 1994 and he was the first Deputy National Coordinator and now the National Coordinator. Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams presents an interesting character with his crusade of selfless commitment to protecting Yoruba interest not minding whatever happens to him in the course of his struggle; it is obvious he has acted his script into history book. In spite of the vicissitude, Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams is optimistic with great hopes and unwavering determination that Nigeria cannot survive as a UNITARIAN nation state unless the union is decentralized and the federating units granted self-determination status and self autonomy.
In his drive for self improvement, he bagged a Diploma in Tourism Management from the International Aviation School, Tema, Ghana in 2003. To further sharpen his academic capabilities, he bagged a Diploma in International Affairs and Strategic Studies from the Lagos State University (LASU). As a strong believer in the attributes of the Yoruba culture, he had promoted several festivals, including Osun Osogbo and Oke Ibadan festivals, and he is also educating our people about Ifa and promising to bring on some other festivals in the nearest future. He has carried his cultural crusade across the Nigerian borders to Brazil, Ghana, Ethiopia and recently Namibia.

It is also breath-taking to know that Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams steers the ships of these viable and development oriented organizations. One of them is the Oodua Peopleís Congress (OPC), a socio-cultural organization that was established in 1994 to champion the course of the Yoruba race following the iniquitous annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election by the erstwhile military despot, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida. Among its major objectives are: to protect the interest of the Yoruba people in the nation-state called Nigeria; to fight for justice for the oppressed Nigerianís; to agitate for a genuine federalism in Nigeria; and to clamour for and support self-determination struggle in all ramifications.
Olokun Festival Foundation
Gani Adams Foundation GAF
Osun Osogbo Festival
Oke-Ibadan Festival
Ifa Festival
Okota Festival (which comes up on June 20th to 24th every year at Arigidi Akoko in Ondo State.)
He is also a well known traditionalist to the core, and above all a God fearing leader who believes in Christianity, Islam and Traditional religions.
