The Pan Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere, has abolished the position of Acting Leader and Deputy Leader of the group, presently occupied by Pa Ayo Adebanjo and Oba Oladipo Olaitan.
Pa Adebanjo became the acting leader of the group after the patriarch of the apex socio-political organisation, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, stepped down from the position, citing old age.
At a meeting held on Wednesday at the Ijapo residence of Fasoranti in Akure, the Ondo state capital, the leaders of the group unanimously moved the motion to abrogate the dual positions of the acting leader and deputy leader.
The motion, which was first moved by Dr. S.J Ibikunle from Ogun State, was later seconded by the members of the group from Ekiti, Kwara, Oyo and Ondo States.
They, however, declared that the responsibilities and authority of advising the leader of the group would now be vested in the Afenifere Elders Caucus.
