Adams says regionalism key to tackling Nigeria’s socio-political challenges
The Aare Ona Kakanfo Designate, Dr Gani Adams said to overcome the many challenges the country is grappling with, there is need to return to regional system of governance.
Adams made the plea in Lagos, while hosting members of the Nigeria Ethnic Nationality Youth Leaders Forum (NENYLF).
In a statement by the Director Of Media and Communication to the Aare designate, Femi Adepoju, Adams said the yorubas have spoken through a submit last September in Ibadan, that the country should revert back to the tested 1963 constitution, which prescribed regionalism.
According to him, there must be justice and equity to attain unity in the country and this he believes could be attained if the country reverts to the application of the 1963 Constitution.
The Aare submitted that the future of the country lies in the hands of the youths as all over the world, youths are taking over and Nigeria should not be an exception.
“The Ooni of Ife ascended the throne at 41. I started the struggle at 23 and I did not allow money or material things to derail me and at 47, I am the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land”.
The youth leaders who spoke one after the other recognised the leadership qualities in the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo and submitted that there is no one who suits the position in yoruba land better than Adams, because of his antecedent as an activist and promoter of culture.
