Says, ‘He is the Alfa and Omega’’
‘My birthday not spiritual’
The grand finale of the 46th birthday celebration of the national coordinator of Oodua People’s Congress (OPC),Otunba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams held on Saturday, April 30,2016,and was well attended.
The event which held at The Batten House, Alausa,Ikeja, Lagos attracted dignitaries from all walks of life, and will surely remain memorable in the life of the Arigidi Akoko, Ondo born activist cum culture promoter.
However, the guests were surprised at the celebrant eulogizing God in his speech, describing Him as “Alfa and Omega, the Lord of heaven and earth, the most powerful, the creator of creators, King of kings, the omnipotent, the omniscient.”
This, however, ran contrary to the belief of the vast majority of the attendees that the fiery OPC leader is an traditional worshipper.
Also, countering the erroneous impression from some quarters of the society that there is spiritual connotation in the annual celebration of his birthday, Adams said, “It’s a thing of joy, celebrating my birthday annually in an elaborate way. Doing that avails me the opportunity to gather people from different segments of the society. There’s nothing spiritual in it as some may be thinking. I only see it as a means of showing appreciation to God publicly,”
Among the dignitaries in attendance were: Hon Tunde Braimah, Hon Sikiratu Adegeye, Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation(NTDC) Director General, Sally Mbanefo, Ogun commissioner for Information, Mr. Dayo Adeneye, Alhaji Kamoru Lamina Oluwo (Sir K), Osun Director of Bureau De Publicity, Mr Semiu Okanlawon, Y omi Fas Lanso, Liz Anjorin, Monsuru Fala and others.
Fuji star, Alhaji Wasiu Alabi (Pasuma) and Lanre Teriba (Atorise) thrilled. The event was perfectly anchored by famous comedian and Master of Ceremonies (MC),Malam Nuru Sokoto, otherwise known as MC Kirikiri.
