Afenifere sets up four-man reconciliation committee
Yoruba socio-political group, the Afenifere, has reportedly set up a four-man committee to look into the disagreement between two of its leaders – Pa Reuben Fasoranti and Pa Ayo Adebanjo.
TheCornet reported that Fasonranti and Adebanjo disagreed on whom between Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi is the group’s adopted presidential candidate. While Fasonranti backs the All Progressives Congress standard-bearer Tinubu, Adebanjo, on his part, prefers the Labour Party’s candidate, Obi.
A report has that four-man committee composes of Chief Olu Falae, who is a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation; Senator Femi Okurounmu, former federal commissioner for works; Chief Cornelius Adebayo, an ex-minister of Communications; and Bashorun Sehinde Arogbofa, the Afenifere Secretary-General.
Kole Omololu, who is national organising secretary of Afenifere, allegedly confirmed the peace move.
In addition, Fasoranti on Thursday clarified a wrongful attribution in the media saying he had removed Adebanjo as the acting leader of Afenifere.
