POLL SHIFT: FASANMI ADVISES NIGERIANS TO REMAIN CALM
Five days to the rescheduled general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission, the national leader of Afenifere Egbe Ilosiwaju Yoruba, Senator Ayo Fasanmi, has called all Nigerians to remain calm.
In a statement by his media assistant, Mr. Adebayo Temitope, the Second Republic said that in spite of what the postponement might have caused Nigerians they should not see it a s a barrier to forge ahead.
He advised Nigerians to exercise faith more so that the electoral umpire had promised that the election will be free and fair.
He said: “Therefore, I urged the people in the south west and the members of real Afenifere Egbe Ilosiwaju Yoruba to remain firm like an anvil under the stroke, like our indefatigable leader, late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, has taught us that it is not life matters but the courage that we bring into it.
“Afenifere has spoken, Yoruba have spoken and our traditional rulers have spoken. The Yoruba will not abandon the legacy of progressivism handed to us by our great immortal Awo. By the grace of God we shall overcome.”
