Yoruba socio-cultural organization, Afenifere, under the leadership of Chief Reuben Fasoranti has referred to the President-elect, Bola Tinubu as a true-born Yoruba son who will bring back Nigeria’s lost glory.
He expressed Afenifere’s utmost delight in Tinubu’s victory at the presidential poll. The Yoruba leader maintained that his group will honour Tinubu as President until the court of competent jurisdiction rules otherwise.
Fasoranti made these known in a statement while reacting to a communiqué issued by its successor and Secretary General, Pa Ayo Adebanjo and Sola Ebiseni, respectively, after its monthly meeting, held at Isanya Ogbo in Ogun State.
“This type of position is alien to us in Afenifere which does not conduct itself as an agent of the state let alone as an electoral umpire. We accept the results of the elections at all levels as declared by INEC until otherwise decided by competent courts in the land.
“Presently, the whole world knows that Nigeria has a President-elect in the person of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a true Yoruba son and nationalist. We in Afenifere not only acknowledge this, but we also take delight in his in-coming Presidency and are confident that he will, by the grace of God, return Nigeria to the glorious position that all of us will be proud of.”
