The Yoruba leader addressed a virtual international conference attended by participants from six continents.
At the conference themed “Decolonizing Yoruba land: Speak up, speak out”, Adams stressed that the struggle for the decolonization of ancestral land must be a collective effort.
He urged the Yorubas to Wake up from their slumber and take their pride of place among other races in the world.
He lamented that the Yorubas are where they are currently “because they lost touch with the core values that are key to the progress of our race.
He said, “Our language, culture and tradition have gone into extinction. The religious institution has also failed to re-invent the true gospel of God.
The political class has done everything to divide us along political lines and politicians have failed to play by the rules.”
