Afenifere’s Visit To Daniel Set Bad Precedence - Afenifere Renewal Group by Ovularia: 7:13pm On Oct 21, 2011
‘Afenifere’s visit to Daniel set bad precedence’

Written by  Sesan Olufowobi

The Afenifere Renewal Group on Thursday, flayed Afenifere leaders’ visit to former Ogun State Governor Gbenga Danel, saying they had set a bad precedence.

The Afenifere leaders led by Chief Reuben Fasoranti, offered Daniel solidarity when they visited his Sagamu home on Wednesday.

Daniel is currently facing a 16-count of corruption against him by the Economic and the Financial Crimes Commission.

But the ARG said the leaders should have waited until Daniel was cleared by the court before reacting and showing solidarity.

The spokesman for ARG, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, said the visit was inappropriate.

He said, "There is also the question of morality and value. Elders are supposed to be custodian of truth. Elders should not intervene when a case is still in court. If there should be any visit, it should be from Daniel to explain what is going on and not from the elders.

"I am not saying that Daniel is guilty; the elders should allow the judiciary to run its course. If he is pronounced innocent, the elders can then speak. What they are doing now sets bad precedence and sends wrong message to the young ones that when they grow up and anything goes wrong, they could expect elders to show solidarity."

The ARG Chairman, Mr. Wale Oshun, however, declined comment.

He said, "We decided to renew because we felt that things could be done in a more efficient manner."

The Ogun State deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the April election, Mr. Tunde Oladunjoye, said the Yoruba elders that visited Daniel were not representing their people but themselves.

"These people are contractors. They have benefitted directly and personally from Daniel and their visit was not a surprise in any form. But they should have waited for the court of law to make its judgement before jumping the gun," said the former Ijebu East Local Government chairman, who spoke to THE PUNCH on the telephone.

"They should also know that their pronouncements were contrary to the conditions on which Daniel was granted bail."

However, a leader of the PDP in Ogun State, Chief Bode Mustapha, said Daniel was the architect of his own misfortune.

Mustapha, a former member of the House of Representatives, also dismissed the allegation by Daniel’s camp that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was behind the former governor’s travail.

Theres no more Afenifere ( these old people have failed us) what we have now is Afenifere renewal group,they r trying to recreate the Afenifere of old.Those guys who paid [b]Ifa[/b]gbenga a visit are RElics( though i respect dr. Falae ).

The biggest opposition,threat to ACN would probably come from these young guys in Afenifere [b]renewal [/b]group if ACN fails to meet expectations, but it  all depend on Odumakin,PS.Tunde Bakare,Omoyele (SR),Ogundamisi etc wink

I would love a situation like this at least no more pdp to blame grin grin grin ( i hate pdp though)

It is simply the behaviour of the average Nigerian on display.
A man is being tried for embezzling 58billion and the very people he is alleged to have defrauded go and pay him a solidarity visit. Something similar happened in Delta state, when after the elders had worked so hard to send Ibori where he belongs, some misguided youth decided to pick up arms in his support.
That is Nigeria for you.

The Afenifere leaders are clearly broke and needs some egunje from Daniel so they can push GEJ to block the case from the executive arm. It can be done n Nigeria for sure and all it will cost him is a few millions. I do not necessarily care about those shameless old men but I must say that I am very surprised that Olu Falae will be in that bunch. Never put your trust in humans because they can disappoint you anytime.

Ileke why is your stomach so big in your profile pic?

Are you pregnant? or is it too much pounded yam plus  burger plus no exercise?

Hey Ileke, you need to heed to the writings on that shirt, do some track for gods sake.

I like your full chest though. Enough 'mammillary' for the boys , BTW, how is your back holding up? Hauling those heavy stuff around must be doing your back in somehow, No?

Are you expecting a baby that you implanted in her womb?. What is your business with the contents of her stomach?. I thought it is only Ezeuche who has been riding that bus o after the demise of Bawomolo.

That's what I repeat time and again. People come and go, they constantly change and that's why institutions are better. That's what we should be building. They endure better.

I agree, what makes me happy is the fact that Yoruba people are cleaning up and not afraid to condemn or prosecute bad leaders who indulge in illegal activities - Accountability. We are showing the rest of the country the way forward. I find Daniel, Akala and Dimeji very disappointing - I hope we can make an example out of them to prevent this in the future.

I think if these ARG guys really take the fight to these old cargoes they will need Sowore,if not for anything atleast his media network.We dont really have mainstream at the moment what we have are splintered groups,look at those who attended the last meeting at the Awos and you would see that we still have a very strong political block outside the Acn platform who may decide to jettison pdp cos of its reputation to float another party.

Any name would do man, i loved it growing up seeing barely educated old people talk politics with so much passion. Grew up hearing alot about Afenifere and i admired the reverence which people talk about them then.They were ethnically conscious,powerful,relativelyhonest and political.

wow!!! we are still respecting "elders" in Nigeria? where there are none?!!!!!!

They have left nothing in their path but destruction and monumentally bad legacies of corruption, laziness, immorality and irresponsibility.

Left to me I will stone all over 55s in Nigeria to death.

Those who have not participated in governance are also culpable by their cowardice silence.

Add Oni to that list abeg.

I think a public "liberation" will do. As much as I dislike what was done to Ghadaffi, do to them what was done to Ghadaffi.
