Otunba Adams expressed great delight at the turnout of dignitaries for the occasion, saying he saw the gesture as a reward for the service he had made to his people of Nigerian irrespective of ethnic background.
Adams, while giving thanks to God for what he done in his live and also praying Him to honour all those that came for the event, charged people of Nigeria to remain committed to fighting for what was right and just irrespective of criticism or victimisation as God was always ready to give reward for such contribution.
“Anything you are doing, continue with it, no matter the criticisms, no matter how people try to victimise you, once you are on the side of the people, at the end of the day, God will reward you. That is exactly what we are seeing here today, it is a reward for the service to the people, the Yoruba people and Nigerians,” he said.
“I would say that even though I worked for the Yoruba people, I still have the privilege to defend Nigeria on the path of peace and justice. I am happy people have come to this occasion from all parts of the country to honour me, they have honour me and God would honour them, every spirit in heaven and earth would honour them. God would elevate them."
“I pray that God should give me more years to serve the people and for the people to honour me,” he prayed.
