Afenifere Raises Impostors Desperation Alarm Over Dosunmu Awolowo. “Why National Back Atiku”

The pan Yoruba Social Cultural group, Afenifere has come heavily on those it described as “impostors parading themselves as AFENIFERE holding meetings and endorsing General Muhammad Buhari to continue in office as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in spite of his incompetence, cluelessness, nepotism, tribalism, religious bigotry, ill-health and glaring mental incapacity.”

In a communique issued  after its   General Meeting held at Akure Ondo State at the residence of the leader, Chief Reuben  Fashoronti, on Monday,  the group said “these pretenders are doubtlessly not AFENIFERE members but, as usual, only dubiously seeking to exploit the goodwill and reputation of AFENIFERE to market their bad political product.

“Their desperation in this regard is exemplified in the fraudulent printing of campaign posters in the name and picturing Ambassador Dr. Tokunbo Awolowo-Dosumu as endorsing Buhari and Osinbajo, which she has since disclaimed”

The group, thus called  “on Nigerians and all Yoruba people, in particular, to come out enmasse and vote for the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr. Peter Obi of the Peoples Democratic Party and to protect their votes in the interest of good governance and life more abundant for all Nigerians”

At the meeting, the Yoruba leaders also  affirmed the resolution of the leaders of Nigeria, consisting of the leadership of Afenifere, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Middle Belt Forum, Northern Elders Forum endorsing the candidacy of the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku
Abubakar GCON, Former Vice-president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his Running Mate, Mr Peter Obi and recommending them to Nigerians in the Presidential election on 16th February 2019.
Afenifere said the endorsement is based on shared commitment to restructuring Nigeria to guaranty true federalism,need to promote the feelings of inclusiveness and sense of belonging amongst Nigerians and promote much desired national patriotism and unity and the need to promote economic growth and prosperity as well as address the present insecurity in the nation and engender genuine security of lives and property.
The communique was signed by
Chief R. F Fasoranti OFR, Leader AFENIFERE,
Chief Ayo Adebanjo,. Chief Olu Falae GCON
and  Senator (Dr) Femi Okurounmi CON.
