BREAKING: Akintoye steps down as Yoruba Nation leader

Prof. Banji Akintoye has resigned as the head of the Yoruba self-determination struggle’s apex body, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide.

It was learned that Akintoye resigned as a result of alleged disagreements among self-determination supporters.

However, the group’s General Secretary, Tunde Amusat, stated in a statement on Thursday that Akintoye handed over leadership responsibilities to his former Deputy, Prof. Wale Adeniran.

Amusat guaranteed Akintoye gave over the mantle of initiative to Adeniran, refering to advanced age and a debilitated body framework as his reasons.

Amusat claims that the worldwide congress of Ilana Omo Oodua held on December 17, 2022, confirmed Adeniran as the group’s new leader and accepted Akintoye’s resignation.

He went on to say that the amendment to the constitution that would make Adeniran the chairman would be put up for vote by registered members at the next worldwide congress before the end of the year.

“Akintoye extolled the principled virtues of Adeniran, commending him for his consistent patience against all forms of blackmail, slanders, and defamatory affirmations that had been unleashed against him in the past by those he (Akintoye) described as “disgruntled elements.” Akintoye extolled the principled virtues of Adeniran.”
