Afenifere blasts Northern Elders
The Pan- Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere has lambasted the Northern Elders Forum NEF for condemning its position on the Igbo presidency in 2023, insisting that it has no apology.
Afenifere declared in a statement by its General Secretary, Chief Sola Ebiseni in Akure, Ondo State that the group’s position was in the “interests of fairness, equity and national inclusiveness and without apologies.
Recall that the Afenifere leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo had canvassed an Igbo Presidency in 2023 for fairness and equity.
In a swift reaction, the Director, Publicity and Advocacy, Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Dr, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed blasted Adebanjo for canvassing for an Igbo president in 2023.
Ahmed said that ” the real politicians, who know and understand the depth of the Nigerian nation and what it will take to lead it know that it is talk like this from Chief Adebanjo, and not the identity of the next President, that represents threats to our future.
