The 95-year-old National Leader of Afenifere and elder statesman, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, due to his old age, has relinquished his leadership of the Yoruba socio-political group, during a meeting at Akure, Ondo State. He asked Chief Ayo Adebanjo to become the interim national leader.
According to him,
“The group needs more than ever before to have an improved organization with a more effective approach to combat the monstrous invasion of our culture and pride as a people.
“Only a more alike and active leadership can achieve this. At 95 I am hardly able to provide such and so it is time for me to step aside.
“At this junction, I am proud to announce Chief Ayo Adebanjo a politician of the Awolowo school of thought as Acting leader.”
