Chief Adams, who promised to follow the elections “keenly from the sidelines,” clarified this was because of what he called “the enduring Yoruba Interest.”
A statement by the Gboyega Oyetola Campaign Organisation, signed by Sulaiman Salawudeen, clarified Adams warned the Agenda must not be politicised under any guise and for whatever reason, acknowledging the strategic position of the State in Yoruba affairs.
The foremost Yoruba leader spoke during his visit to the All Progressives Congress (APC) Candidate in the 22 September 2018 governorship election in the State, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, in his Ileri Oluwa Campaign office, Osogbo.
Adams who was in town for the 2018 Osun Osogbo Festival, described the incumbent governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola and Gboyega Oyetola as gentlemen who he believed would play the game by the rules.
Oyetola expressed gratitude to Adams for the visit, assuring he (Oyetola) was already committed to the ideals of what he called ‘Omoluabi’ which, according to him, offered a summary of the Yoruba leader’s “Yoruba Agenda” vision.
Oyetola maintained he would sustain and consolidate sterling development process recorded by the Rauf Aregbesola administration across many sectors of the economy if he won the election, adding “I would, even in doing this, seek to break new grounds that would be the pride of the Yoruba.”
The APC governorship hopeful maintained values for which the Yoruba are known must not be allowed to die, promising to use his office as governor to promote enduring culture and tradition of the race.
