A South-West based socio-political group, Afenifere has denied endorsing the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu or any aspirant for the 2023 presidential election.
Recall that the leader of South West Agenda, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, in a statement on Tuesday claimed his group secured the support of Afenifere for its candidate during a visit to Pa Reuben Fasoranti, erstwhile Afenifere leader.
However, Afenifere in a statement by its Director of Communications, Sola Lawal on Wednesday denied endorsing any candidate.
Lawal stated that the group is still mourning the demise of its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, adding that all engagements were also suspended in honour of the deceased.
Lawal further noted that 96-year-old Pa Fasoranti had taken a “deserved rest when he formally handed over to Chief Ayo Adebanjo and the Ex-couldn’t have spoken for Afenifere during their visit to his Akure home.
“We have temporarily stopped all activities in honour of Odumakin who is still lying in the morgue, cold and lonely.
“ Adeyeye’s visit into Afenifere space at this period of huge loss and intense mourning is disrespectful and insensitive.
“Also, being a Ex-Afenifere top notch and Odumakin’s immediate predecessor, Adeyeye should cease all activities and join us in mourning at this trying times,” he said.
