Today across Yoruba land, there is celebration among the old, young, male and female.
The celebration is not because the tragedy that befell Nigeria as President has been dethroned.
The celebration is because Otunba Gani Adams’ is being installed as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land.
In case you don’t know Gani Adams, He is the leader of the Odua Peoples Congress. A group that picked up arms against the marauders.
He demanded for Oduduwa state!
Nnamdi Kanu and Gani Adams have some things in common.. They both love their people.
They both fought for the freedom of their people.
They were ready to sacrifice their lives for the freedom of their people.
The difference is that Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB did not pick up arms like Gani Adams and his OPC.
While the Yoruba’s rallied round Gani Adams, the Igbo elites and the politically correct betrayed him.
While the Yoruba’s defended their own, the Igbo elites and the politically correct in partnership with their masters in the north fought against Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.
Today as all roads lead to the installation of Gani Adams’ as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land ( The defender of Yoruba land), Nnamdi Kanu is nowhere to be found and Igbo land is without a defender and true leader.
Today, both those who never liked Gani’s style are at the venue for the installation.
The irony is, even the Yoruba’s who criticized Nnamdi Kanu’s courage are today celebrating the installation of Gani Adams as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land.
The lessons in this case is that you shouldn’t betray your own no matter what…. Another lesson is, that we need strong and courageous people to confront the marauders masquerading as owners of Nigeria.
The Igbo’s lost a great opportunity in the person of Nnamdi Kanu.
As Gani defends the Yorubas against the marauders, who will defend the Igbo’s?
