YORUBA NATION: Prof Akintoye’s Deputy, Spokesperson Resign
The Deputy Alana of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, the apex body of Yoruba Self-Determination Struggle, Prof. Wale Adeniran, has resigned from his position.
Adeniran, who is the pioneer Commissioner for Education in 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 is yet to accept it as of the time of filing this report.
In a statement on Monday, Maxwell said Adeniran’s resignation took effect from Sunday, November 6th, 2022.
In a letter of resignation, Adeniran, a native of Ile/Ife, Osun-State, said notwithstanding his resignation, he shall remain a staunch member of Ilana Omo Oodua.
The two-paragraph letter reads “Dear Professor Banji Akintoye, as a matter of principle, I hereby give 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”.
