Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti
Elder statesman, Chief Rueben Fasoranti, has declared as false the report that he said Chief Ayo Adebanjo is no longer the acting leader of Afenifere.
Fasoranti, also said that the meeting of the group would continue to be held at Chief Adebanjo’s country home, in Ogbo-ljebu.
He was reacting to media reports on the contrary following the disagreement between him and Chief Adebanjo on the endorsement of two presidential candidates, Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress.
Chief Fasoranti, in a statement dated November 3, 2022 and signed by his personal assistant, Mr A. Abiola, also declared that he never said future meetings of the group would be held in his Akure home.
A copy of the statement was sent to the Nigerian Tribune on Thursday afternoon.
Chief Fasoranti described the false report as designed to cause confusion and polarise Afenifere.

“Papa’s main concern is the interest of the Yoruba in the complex political situation in Nigeria.

“It is hoped that this information will be adequately circulated.
