Expectations that Pan-Yoruba group Afenifere would elect a new leader today during its meeting in Akure, the Ondo State capital, did not materialise, afterall. A RayPower FM Lagos report said Pa Reuben Fasoranti has re-considered his decision to resign as the leader of the group, and has chosen to continue the leadership.

Pa Fasoranti was aid to have changed his mind following the intervention of top Yoruba leaders, including the governor of Ondo State, Mr Olusegun Mimiko.

News Express reports that Pa Fasoranti had earlier resigned from the leadership of Afenifere, saying that the group had deviated from the aims and objectives of the founding fathers.
