Nigeria will continue to struggle, until...— Gani Adams

Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, has described June 12, 1993, annulled election as the most defining moment in Nigeria's history.

According to him, the struggle to free Nigerians from the shackles of bondage will continue until the country is restructured into federating units.

Adams, in a statement on Thursday, June 11, by his special assistant on media, Kehinde Aderemi, expressed joy that part of the dreams of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) under his leadership, has been realized with the celebration of June 12 as the authentic democracy day.

According to Legit, the Yoruba leader, however, regretted that despite the sacrifices of the activists and pro-democracy groups, democracy is yet to take its root in Nigeria.

He expressed hope that Nigeria can only get it right with true federalism, pointing out that the only way out of the political logjam is to let the federating states develop at their own pace.

This has always been our problem. All our leaders have lost touch with the people at the grassroots, that is why we must continue to press for justice until we get the best for Nigeria and Nigerians.

Aare Adams also said the lesson of June 12 election is, indeed, for a lifetime for everybody, stressing that no matter how long the long arm of lies persists, the truth will one day prevail.
