Wealth (AJE) is the abundance of valuable resources or material possession or the control of such assets . The festival symbolises peace, unity, wealth and prosperity for the people. Odun Aje the festival for the veneration and worship of the goddess Aje, who is the guardian goddess for wealth, profit, wealth creation and sustenance among the Yoruba race. If an individual wants to be wealthy the physical things he or she must engage in are quite apparent. For example, a trader at Oshodi market must get a shop and decide upon what to sell in the shop.

Aje is responsible for profit making in the market place, and in fact, supervises the entire aspects of life that relates to money. It behoves us to note the special place of this goddess in the traditional economy of the Yoruba race as it centres on the open air market place of old which of course still exists today.

There are many that passed through this planet with wisdom and talents but few are they that utilize these God-given gifts to the glory of God and the welfare of their people.
Otunba (Dr.) Gani Adams is a man of many parts; a visionary leader, a charismatic political activist, a reliable champion of rights of the masses, an embodiment of political morality and an epitome of humility. He is also a well known traditionalist to the core, and above all a God fearing leader who believes in Christianity, Islam and Traditional religions. The Almighty God who knew the roles destined for him to play on earth brought him into the world through a union of two great families of Pa Lamidi Adams and Late Madam Dada Adams, nee Aduloju.

Boko Haram is a big insult, Nigeria is not safe – OPC


The Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, has described the recent abducti of over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls from Chibok area of Borno State by the Boko Haram sect as a big insult to the nation’s security. Otunba Gani Adams, the National Coordinator of the group, said the incident showed that Nigeria was not safe for its people. This is coming after Dr. Frederick Fasehun, leader of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC) has said President Goodluck Jonathan must contest for a second term in 2015 in order to avert chaos in the country. Adams told Punch that the numerous security challenges were capable of discouraging foreign investors from bringing their resources into Nigeria and as well discourage Nigerians in other countries from returning home. He also strongly condemned the recent bomb attacks by the outlawed group in Kano and Plateau states where several Nigerians were brutally murdered. He further called on the Federal Government to look beyond the military in the fight against the Boko Haram menace by engaging relevant stakeholders. He said, “Majority of the Boko Haram members are not Nigerians; they infiltrated Nigeria through illegal routes. Report claims that there are 1, 400 illegal routes in the country. That is why we members of the National Security Committee suggested that there must be community police different from the regular police. “We suggested that the community police must be well-equipped to arrest and prosecute suspected criminals. We also suggested that border security must be emphasised to check the persistent infiltration of the country.”
