Sen. Dayo Adeyeye, National Chairman, South West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023 (SWAGA), has said that Afenifere, the Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, is not divided on its support for the presidential ambition of All Progressives Congress (APC) Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Adeyeye made this known in a programme monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Thursday.
He said that Tinubu’s candidacy enjoys massive support from a majority of Afenifere members in spite of contrary insinuations in some quarters.
“I have respect for Adebanjo. He is my leader in Afenifere. As of today, the leader of Afenifere, for clarity, is Reuben Fasoranti.
“There is no faction in Afenifere. What Fasoranti has merely done was that since he is advanced in age, he appointed someone to act on his behalf in the interim and that person is Ayo Adebanjo.
“If a decision is going to be taken by Afenifere, it is not a one-man show.
“What I read in the papers was a personal decision of Adebanjo and not the opinion of Afenifere,” he said.
He further said that “whatever Adebanjo said was not a statement issued at the end of a meeting of the organisation, it was his personal decision.
“It is not a fact that Afenifere is divided or there is factionalisation.
“Ninety-nine per cent of the Afeniferes are behind Tinubu,” he said.
