President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Gani Adams, on his investiture as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo asking him to use the position for national unity.

Buhari in his congratulatory message on Friday said Chief Adams should use the new position to pursue worthy goals of security, peace and national unity.

The president’s congratulatory message was made available to journalists in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

“The President commends the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi 111, on the appointment of a new Aare Ona Kakanfo, who will assist him in the arduous task of leading the illustrious Yoruba people.

“President Buhari urges the new Kakanfo to bring quintessential courage, wisdom and astuteness to bear on his new office, for a more secure life for the weak, vulnerable and voiceless in the country,” the statement read in part.

Buhari, therefore, prayed God will grant the Aare Ona Kakanfo a favourable reign.
