“Fulfil your stance on federalism”, Afenifere tells Tinubu

Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has expressed concern over the lack of commitment of President Bola Tinubu to ensuring true federalism in the country amid his stance on the issue as former Governor of Lagos State.

The Yoruba group said that Tinubu, as the President of the country, who is regarded as a prominent figure in national politics, should use his influence to ensure the implementation of the recommendations made during the 2014 National Conference.

The group, in a communiqué after the end of its monthly meeting held at Isanya-Ogbo, Ogun State, the country home of its leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, urged the Federal Government to summon the courage to match and reconcile the resolutions of the 2014 National Conference and the reports of the APC (el-Rufa’i) Committee on Federalism.

The group also called on the Government and security agencies to urgently take steps that would be more effective in tackling the insecurity threatening the socio-economic well-being of the people.

“Afenifere tasks the Federal Government to meet the December deadline given for Port Harcourt refinery to resume production. The government should also accelerate actions that would strengthen the value of our currency, enhance productivity, and reduce the costs of items.

“The organisation also calls for acceleration of actions in the power sector by the Minister of Power and Energy, Adebayo Adelabu in view of the pivotal roles that power is playing in the economic and social lives of the people”.

In attendance at the meeting were representatives from various state chapters of Afenifere as well as a coordinator of the organisation in the United States of America and Canada.
