Afenifere backs Obasanjo to unseat Buhari, APC

The position of the group was made known by its leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, after a visit to him and other Afenifere leaders on Monday

Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has declared its support for the move by President Olusegun Obasanjo to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress in 2019.
The position of the group was made known by its leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, after a visit to him and other Afenifere leaders on Monday.
Obasanjo had said he was in Akure, the Ondo State capital, to visit his “father”.
Among other Afenifere leaders who received him were Basorun Sehinde Arogbofa, Chief Sola Ebiseni, Chief Kole Omololu, Chief Femi Aluko, Chief Bakita Bello and Demola Ijabiyi.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, Fasoranti said the group was in support of a realignment to kick out the present administration.
He said: “We are in full support of all the letters written by Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of the nation.
“We are dissatisfied with the state of affairs in the country.
“The country is not being run properly.”
Fasoranti said Afenifere was in support of the Peoples Democratic Party, Social Democratic Party and African Democratic Congress.
He said: “It will be the joy of everybody to present a formidable team to confront the evil government that is there now.
“Nothing is being done properly in the country presently.
“Look at the killings in the North.
“The President is very silent about it.
“We are all Nigerians.
“If he can keep silent about the killing of his people, that is bad enough.”
