Afenifere Chiefs To Settle Fasoranti -Adebanjo Row

Leaders of the apex Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, have agreed to resolve the crisis in the organisation following the contentious endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Bola Tinubu, by the two leaders of the association.

KOKO TV gathered on Thursday a four-man committee comprising a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae; Senator Femi Okurounmu; an ex-Minister of Communications, Chief Cornelius Adebayo and the Afenifere Secretary-General, Bashorun Sehinde Arogbofa would meet with the Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti and the acting leader of the group, Pa Ayo Adebanjo to resolve the rift.

But while Omololu asserted that a reconciliation meeting would be held at Fasoranti’s residence in Akure, a chieftain and former Lagos State Deputy Governor, Senator Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele, said she was not aware of any meeting scheduled for Akure.

The Socio-cultural Yoruba group are the only ones openly canvasing for a presidential candidate. Both the Nze-Indigbo and the Arewa Consultative forums, are yet to openly support or annoit any candidate.
