NNAMDI KANU AND GANI ADAMS: A LESSON FOR THE
IGBO ELITES AND THE POLITICALLY CORRECT:
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? Lazarus

The undoing of Nnamdi Kanu is cursing and maligning other regions leaders.
If he had focused on Igbo affairs and development he would still be in circulation today.
He lost focus and he was booing pastors, Yorubas leaders, Hausa leaders etc.
At the end of the day dude was arrested in a hotel in Yoruba land with Hausa prostitute while his wife was pregnant.

We the young ones still believe so much in nnamdi kanu,our trust in him is not shaken.
Some people might not like kanus ideology but we understand why he did his thing that way,you cannot achieve a desired result by doing things the same way. He had to use a more radical approach to get the attention of his audience which he succeeded in believe it or not.

One preached hate , the other preach against injustice, exclusion.
One had warriors , the other had keyboard warriors.
One limited his angst against the Nigerian state to his ethnic nation , the other was pompously trying to encroach on nations that not his .
One deferred to his elders , traditional rulers and intellectuals, the other was giving his elders sliding tackle on radio .
One knew when it was time to slow down , the other put his leg on the gas even though he had already lost control of his revolution.

Gani Adams loved Yorubas and fought for Yoruba interests.. when Igbos were busy sabotaging our efforts to get a restructured Nigeria, the likes of Gani never backed down.
Kanu on the other hand was a fool.. threatening to burn down Nigeria, insulting other tribes and calling them names.
I'm so glad his own people sold him out, proscribed and accepted the terrorist tag on him. #karma

ettybaba:Why do yorubas lie as if their lives depends on it?? Can you show us pictures of Nnamdi Kanu with the so called hausa prostitute??
I will be waiting
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by enemybulldozer(m): 10:50pm On Jan 13|
What do you know?? Awolowo masterminded the killing of our women and children, oba akiolu threatened Igbos for election he is not even among the contestants and you expect Kanu to clap for you enemies of humanity??
You afonjas should keep dreaming and I don't want you goons to ever wakeup.

EchoCharlie:that is what you think but the ideology lives whether you like it or not it will never die. Infact he has left many in doubt with a psychological warfare including his enemies who ask everyday "where is nnamdi kanu"
A group that have moved to her new headquarters in Germany with a lot of programmes mapped out including the launch of a BBC Hausa radio broadcast to sensitize the uninformed cannot be said to be dead ,it is only a matter of time they are probably doing underground jobs. Sometimes you leave to fight another day
No matter how hard you try you can never silence the will of the people but you can only prolong it.
The sun must surely rise because there is no better alternative ,not even in the one we are seeing that have been disgracefully called a shithole by the most powerful president in the world.

One major difference; OPC did not target specific ethnic groups.They confronted the authorities and anyone who is against the interest of the Yoruba race.
IPOB and Kanu preached hate and urged his followers to attack Yoruba and Hausa/Fulani.Nnamdi Kanu failed even before he started.

|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by biafranation: 8:09am On Jan 14|
SHove that useless excuse of hate speech up your ewedu behind. Ojukwu never preached hate nor attacked yorubaa, yet Awolowo from no where injected himself and yorubaa nation into a fight between Eastern Region and North, starving 3 million Biafraan children to death. I mention this because Ojukwu never preached hate nor attacked yorubaa, yet yorubaa killed millions of Biafraans. So whether Nnamdi Kanu had preached hate or not like Ojukwu, Yorubaa will still hate out of envy.
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by Amarabae(f): 8:14am On Jan 14|
Nnamdi kanu still remain our hero and leader.
He has finished his work,
The ideologies he laid lives on.
No going back
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by nku5: 8:19am On Jan 14|
This Is a lie. Igbos never fought against restructuring. Is it not against nairaland rules for posters to post false information?? Prove it before I report you to the mods.
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by nku5: 8:22am On Jan 14|
Gani Adams OPC hunted and murdered Hausas, Igbos, Ijaws and others in Lagos.IPOB has not killed anybody. Do not come and lie on this thread.
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by ettybaba(m): 8:23am On Jan 14|
biafranation:Do you know Ojukwu wanted to take over Lagos?
Biafra army were stopped in Ore, a Yoruba land.
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by nku5: 8:26am On Jan 14|
Igbo leaders and so called elders that betrayed the cause will never recover from the shame. No more respect for them. See how our women disgraced Nwodo at the Igbo-Yoruba summit in Enugu
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by nku5: 8:42am On Jan 14|
If Kanu had been a violent agitator he wouldn't have been silenced.
Everybody including non-Igbos know how flaky and disloyal many igbo elders are to the cause. Except for a few like Ikenga Nnewi, Dr. Ikedife. Kanu never insulted him. Those disloyal so called elders sold the entire Igbo race out they didn't sell Kanu out. Kanu in the larger scheme of things is not an issue. He was just one man with plenty of liver
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by jollymizzle(m): 8:51am On Jan 14|
there was always something fundamentally wrong with the IPOB ideology.the igbo culture doesn't value respect as much as the yorubas, didn't encourage humility like the hausas and this was a big problem. diplomacy is the most valuable tool recognized in negotiations today. diplomacy doesn't say you shouldn't hate,or kill, it says you have to be reasonable, capable of restraint,and flexible, able and willing to appeal to the other sides sensibilities . diplomacy is virtually non existent in igbo culture and that adversely affected the fight. many things kanu and ipob did were just downright distasteful, unnecessary and in bad faith.like kanu, the igbo youths were drawn to braggadocio, they were tact less as you would have noticed,they never listened. listened in the sense that they were so arrogant they believed they were never wrong. they loved kanu for his insults to the yorubas and hausas, they loved him not because of what they wanted to accomplish but because he could dehumanize us in every way they dreamed. they lost focus.their fight shouldn't have been to trample us but to better their lots, either in nigeria or in biafra. what happened when the python came? , they scattered. self-doubt may be generally bad but if you aren't flexible,you end up becoming a tyrant. Kanu and ipob never listened to suggestions, they did things their way and believed no one e could question them. kanu as a leader should have not been so arrogant to dismiss advice from elders. he should have known that other people's opinions matter too. he kept insulting and annoying the rest of the county. no one was able to slow him down even the elders from his region weren't spared. Gani Adam's always submitted to the elders, that's why the Yoruba nation rallied to him when obasanjo imprisoned him. kanu believed Althouse who didn't completely agree with him were against him and in the end, almost everyone who mattered stood against him. igbos need a leader who listens, not some power drunk scum. the anambra election boycott order was the last straw, I'm sure many elders reached out to him to reconsider but he refused.

enemybulldozer:Go to your history book. I know your elders will not put it cos of what they want to feed you with.
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by ifyan(m): 9:38am On Jan 14|
What did you expect when the IGBOS did back him up on like Gani. Though l could remember some Yoruba ass licker to their Hausa master were against him.
If only IGBO leader could really understand Nnamdi KANU,he wouldn't have been missing by now.
Forget it the IGBO pulsations in large numbers love NNAMDI KANU but no strong backup.
Another thing that needed to take into consideration was what administration did they fight for that goal. Though KANU did calculate it well.
My humble opinion
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by turawafett(f): 9:45am On Jan 14|
I don't reply comment on nairaland as such, but having done research on OPC as my undergraduate project in 2003 I thing I can say a bit about the Gani Adams.
The OPC is a child of necessity then, its rose as a result of MKO election annulment.
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by nku5: 10:01am On Jan 14|
1. There is a clear difference here. Yoruba elders declared disenchantment with Nigeria when IBB annulled MKO Abiola's victory. Dr. Fasehun formed OPC and Gani joined. Later Gani fell out with Fasehun (who he called a sellout). Gani took his elders struggle to a new violent level. Many Igbo elders on the other hand had nothing for the youths to follow except for their stomachs. That's why a young man had to do something bold.
2. It is time to get over navel-gazing about "insults". Nnamdi Kanu brought more pressure to the national question than any other person or group since the civil war. Was it worth abandoning the most pressing issue because one man offended you?

The Mazi with the table tennis bat shaped skull is currently working in one mac Donalds at peckham in london while "miss Emma " Eze of bo bo" powerful" was last seen tweeting from one nkwobi and palm wine joint in aba yesterday!
|Re: Between Gani Adams And Nnamdi Kanu by jollymizzle(m): 10:09am On Jan 14|
nku5:we are over his(kanu's insults) but that wasn't my point.im saying it was because of those insults that many of your youths followed him, you still have to learn to be diplomatic. The fact is the Northerners seem more reasonable than igbos even if there are ruthless and pretty much dangerous. igbos need to stop being rigid and listen.the only time NK had an iota of reason was when he got bail and was seemingly concerned about the plight of some hausa inmates he met imprisoned without trial. imagine if he had continued on that path. he would have gained followers from all over nigeria and be powerful enough to actually make a difference. he went back to his nonsense and the rest is history
