Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has said the choice of Chief Gani Adams as Aare Ona Kakanfo is divine, pledging to give him all the needed support.
Ambode expressed the belief of Lagos State in the candidature of Adams and assured him of massive support and prayers.
“This visit is not ordinary; it is significant and it also shows that we are the embodiment of the Yoruba heritage.
“We support fully your ascension to the title of Aare Ona Kakanfo.
“This title is one of the most significant titles that bind the Yoruba culture and heritage,” he said.
“We will make sure that everything that has to do with the Yoruba culture; we protect it with all our heart.
“We believe that Lagos remains the bulwark of the future of the Yoruba race and we will not let it down,” Ambode said.
Adams also commended Ambode for his role in the South-West regional integration and the erection of the statue of Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
“You are more interested in the integration of the South-West and I must commend you for that,’’ he said.
