Yoruba Nation Agitators Back Adeniran As New Leader
The leader of the Ilana Omo Odua worldwide, Prof. Banji Akintoye on Thursday stepped down from his position.
Naija News had earlier reported that following Akintoye’s decision to resign from his position, he affirmed his former deputy, Adeniran as his successor.
Akintoye in a letter released on Thursday noted that he resigned from office because of old age and a weak body system.
He further stated that his decision had nothing to do with the perceived crisis rocking the self-determination group.
The General Secretary of the organisation, Tunde Hamzat in a chat with Punch on Thursday confirmed that Adeniran is the new leader of the group.
According to Hamzat, there is no need for an election to be conducted to select the next leader of the group following Akintoye’s resignation.
He further stated that the congress of Ilana Omo Odua Worldwide has affirmed Adeniran as the new leader.
Speaking on the speculated crisis in the self-determination group, Hamzat noted that there is no crisis rocking the group.
He said, “Wale Adeniran is the new leader. No election is taking place. The congress already affirmed him.”
Asked about the alleged crisis rocking the self-determination group, he said, “There is no crisis.”
