Chairman of the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, has resigned his position.
Fasoranti, in his resignation letter copied to the Secretary-General Sehinde Arogbofa, and obtained by SaharaReporters in Akure, Ondo State, expressed disgust at the level of disunity and continuous wrangling among members of the group.
“As events have been unfolding in the past few years, the focus and goals of the founding fathers of our great organization ‘Afenifere’ have gradually eroded.”, he stated in the letter.
Fasoranti explained that considering his age and the dispute among its members, he decided to step aside as the leader of the group.
“Considering my age, efforts and selfless dedication to my country, my state [Ondo], my political parties, my past leaders and my members in Afenifere both in Nigeria and in diaspora, I hereby wish to inform you all that I have decided to step aside as leader of our great organization Afenifere,” he said.
Fasonranti added that it was a “herculean task” for its members to work in unity to ensure the actualization of the Afenefere goals.
