Yoruba Nation Agitation: Crisis Rocks Group As Banji Akintoye’s Deputy, Adeniran Resigns
The Deputy Alana of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, the umbrella/apex body of Yoruba Self-Determination Struggle, Professor Wale Adeniran, has announced his resignation effective from Sunday November 6th, 2022.
Adeniran, who is the pioneer Commissioner for Education of Osun-State, resigned from his position, 48-hour after the Spokesperson of the group, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, resigned from his position.
Though Adeleye’s resignation was rejected by the Worldwide Executive Council of the Self-determination group, he had yet to accept as of the time of filing this report.
In a letter of resignation, a copy of which was sighted by our Correspondent, Adeniran, a native of Ile/Ife, Osun-State, said notwithstanding his resignation, he shall remain a staunch member of Ilana Omo Oodua.
The two paragraphs statement reads “Dear Professor Banji Akintoye, as a matter of principle, I hereby give a notice of my resignation from the position of Deputy Alana, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, with effect from Sunday, November 6th, 2022.
“However, given my irrevocable commitment to the realization of an Independent and Sovereign Yoruba Nation State, separate from Nigeria, I hereby affirm that I remain a dedicated and staunch member of our freedom fighting organization, Ilana Omo Oduduwa.”
While Adeniran said he was resigning based on “Principle”, Adeleye, said he was resigning based on what “only him, Professor Banji Akintoye and Almighty God knows”.
