The former national leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti who is 95 years old stepped down from the position due to old age.
According to him, the development became necessary because the group needs an improved organisation with more effective approach to combat the challenges facing Yoruba people.

But speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, 92 year-old Adebanjo said he would have desired a much more younger person to step into Fasoranti’s shoes as the group’s leader, adding that the issue will be looked into in the near future.

“I am not at that meeting where the decision was taken today that I will be the new leader of Afenifere but I agree with them on the decisions taken” .“However, I believe they should have chosen a younger person as the new leader. I also agree with those saying it is time for younger generation of leaders to take charge of Afenifere. I believe we will look into that as time goes on” .

“People will say when a 95 year old stepped down for a 92 year old, what difference does it really make? I will really love a younger person to be in charge. I don’t have to be the leader to contribute my quota. There is nothing I have been doing now that I can’t still do.

We believe in restructuring of Nigeria and true federalism. We also believe in good governance without corruption” he said
