Tension in southwest as 2 powerful leaders split fire over Tinubu’s candidature

Legit.ng earlier reported that the crisis rocking the Afenifere, the leading pan-Yoruba socio-political group, is growing beyond the buzz to the surface since the group leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, endorsed Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate.

A section of the group led by Pa Ayo Adebanjo had earlier endorsed Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate. Still, Tinubu's endorsement was well attended by leaders across southwest states, including Kogi and Kwara.

However, Adebanjo, an acting leader of the group, had claimed that Fasoranti could not remove him, while Fasoranti has said the group meeting will henceforth be held in his house and that he remained the leader of the group.
