Group Tells Adebanjo To Step Down As Afenifere Head

A group, under the aegis of Concerned Oodua Defendants, has called on Chief Ayo Adebanjo, the acting Leader of Afenifere, a Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, to step aside.

Its South-West Coordinator, Mr Lai Gboluaje, made the call in Ibadan while leading a protest staged against the continuity of Adebanjo as leader of Afenifere.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adebanjo became the acting leader of the organisation after Chief Reuben Fasoranti stepped aside on account of old age.

Gboluaje said the call became necessary for the sustainability of Yoruba heritage.
He stressed that whoever would lead Afenifere must be in support of whatever Yoruba people stands for.

“We have watched with dismay, disappoinment and sadness how noble ideal of Afenifere founding fathers had been bastardised in the last one year.

“We can no longer fold our arms and watch our noble heritage going into mud. If we do, the likes of Pa Awolowo, Pa Ajasin, Pa Adesanya, Pa Ige, will not forgive us,” he said.(NAN)
