Aare Afe Babalola speaks on Aare Oona Kakanfo chieftaincy title

Legal luminary, and Founder/Pesident of Afe Babalola University, Aare Afe Babalola, has said Aare Ona Kakanfo ranks above the title of a chief. Babalola has also congratulated the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Gani Adams, who was recently chosen as the 15th occupier of the position by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi. In a statement by the Director of Media and Communications to Adams,he quoted Babalola as saying this during the First South-West Stakeholders’ Summit held in Abeokuta, Ogun State. Babalola was quoted as saying, “Aare is higher than a chief. I was the one who fought for the installation of Chief MKO Abiola when Ooni of Ife didn’t want him to be Aare Ona Kakanfo. After that, I was made Aare of Yorubaland in Law by Alaafin; so, I am not at war with the new Aare Ona Kakanfo.”
