Adeola Tokunboh, Akure, Niyi Akande, Osogbo.

Pan Yoruba social cultural group, Afenifere, on Tuesday suspended the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the last Osun governorship poll, Senator Iyiola Omisore.

The group in a vieled refrence to Osun governorship poll, said the ex deputy governor acted at variance with its directive.

Inside sources within Afenifere told Osun Daily that the group wanted Omisore to support PDP candidate in the poll, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

It was also learnt that Pa Ayo Adebanjo, onbehalf of the group, met with Senator Omisore to secure his support for PDP.

The group, however, after its meeting in Akure, Ondo state capital, announced Omisore's suspension through Pa Ruben Fasoranti.

But reacting, Senator described as unfair the slammed against him by the group without listening to his side of the story.

Omisore in a text message sent to Osun Daily editor said: "Acting at variance? Osun SDP passed a resolution to coalesce with APC.

"Osun SDP members are not affiliate of Afenifere. Politics is local, so I acted in consonance with the position and will of Osun SDP. 

"I'm yet to be informed, if so, Afenifere bypassed principle of fair hearing. I wasn't given any directives, it might be oversight on Afenifere's part or assumptions."

  1. Well these people are Yoruba fathers distinct from politics.However, LTS quite surprising that their statements and actions now has shown clearly that they have a score to settle with Asiwaju Tinubu courtesy the recent statement credited to Baba On as an no on Asiwaju.I would advise that they should stand clear away from poltics and remain as the Umbrella for the entire Yoruba's race regardless any politica party which may be choice of Yoruba son and daughters.
