There are three signs of a hypocrite: when he speaks he speaks lies, when he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he betrays his trust.
It’s highly pathetic and saddened to read from a man (Gani Adams) who proudly claiming and boasting of promoting Yoruba culture, traditions and unity attacking a calibre of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who he is old enough to be his father.
I was appalled and astonished while watching and monitoring abusive comments coming from Gani Adams and his members lately on different social media platforms against Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of All Progressive Congress and one of frontline Yoruba leaders.
It is on this note that the Oodua Progressive Care Initiative (OPCI), a registered Yoruba organization with the aims and objectives of promoting, reviving Yoruba cultural heritage values hereby openly and outrightly condemned the verbal attacks on Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu by Mr Gani Adams.
In every sense of reasoning, no any responsible and reliable Yoruba will support such such dastardly acts from Gani. Where is the place of Integrity (Omoluabi)? Was he appointed as Aare Onakakanfo to unite Yorubaland or to bring disharmony?
It is on record that ninety percent of predicament and tribulations that were faced by Chief Obafemi Awolowo from 1953- 1983 came from the Yorubas, same as untimely death of Chief MKO Abiola to claim his June 12 mandate. It is the same Yorubas that contributed to his problems.Yoruba, we lare the problems of ourselves all the times. Why this acrimony, rancor and bitterness against ourselves always? The biggest enemies of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo today are Yorubas.
It is highly unfortunate that Gani Adams is treading the same paths of destroying the Yoruba prominent sons and daughters. He never reasons beyond his nose and think twice before throwing verbal missiles on any Yoruba personalities who failed to play with him with money, forgetting that he is writing another unforgivable history for himself and his children.
Gani Adams has never seen anything good in Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, the same thing he did to Dr. Fredrick Faseun, the founder of Oodua People’s Congress, after he plotted a coup against the leadership of the man in 1999. Faseun is no more, Chief Obasanjo is no more in power. It is now Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, why only you Gani Adams always? There are a lot of Yoruba enemies that you ought to have wage war against if you truly want to fight for the Yorubas. Why destabilizing the peace and harmony of Yorubaland?
The Oodua Progressive Care Initiative is not not a political party neither we have an affiliation with any political party, but we belongs to every political parties and all political parties belongs to us as far as there Yorubas are in the party.
For those of us who have been with Gani Adams over the years before we parted ways with him as a results bad Leadership manner and of his selfish aggrandizement. It came to many of us as a surprise that Adams quickly forgotten the roles and efforts of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his life, when he was Mr nobody. This is very unfortunate. He’s an ungrateful man “An ungrateful man is like a hog under a tree eating acorns, but never looking up to see where they come from”
However, just on Tuesday, he instructed all his State Coordinators of Oodua People’s Congress to issue Press statement in support to dent the image of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. He threatened them and placed them on oaths. Is that who you call a Leader? Someone who claims to be protecting the interests of Yoruba race.
Therefore, we hereby call on general public to ignore Gani Adams’ statements and outbursts on Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. We know him for such whenever he’s down financially, he can go extra miles to blackmail people in exchange of money. He’s very smart when it’s comes to rope people.
Gani Adams is a pathological liar, he should be checked.
His activities during the 2015 general elections are still very fresh in our memories, when he openly declared support for Dr Goodluck Jonathan. He sold his conscience because of money. He destroyed many valuable properties in Lagos.
It will be very disappointing to see anyone believing Gani Adams has the inerest of Yorubaland at heart. “The philosophy of our friend is money for hand back for ground”.He’s a wheeler dealer
What should be Paramount to all Yorubas now is how to overcome all the challenges facing our dear Yoruba Nation and to support ourselves to achieve the achievable goals.
Thanks and God bless.
Chief (Dr ) Maruff Olarewaju,
The National President of Oodua progressive care initiative (OPCI)
