These are not the best of times for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has denied supporting his presidential ambition.
Afenifere Director of Communications, Sola Lawal in a statement titled, ‘Afenifere denies endorsing presidential aspirant’ said;
“Afenifere is still mourning the demise of its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, in whose honour the group suspended all engagements.”
“96-year-old Pa Fasoranti has taken a “deserved rest when he formally handed over to Chief Ayo Adebanjo three weeks ago after leading the group for 12 years and so the former couldn’t have spoken for Afenifere during the SWAGA visit to his Akure home.”
“Afenifere has temporarily halted all activities in honour of Odumakin who is still lying in the morgue, cold and lonely”.
“The Adeyeye foray into Afenifere space at this period of huge loss and intense mourning is disrespectful, insensitive and unwarranted.”
