Afenifere leader, Ayo Adebanjo

Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of Afenifere, a Yoruba social-cultural group, has said that the youths should be ashamed of themselves for leaving leadership in the hands of aged men.

According to the Afenifere leader, when he was young, he was fighting for the nation but the youths of nowadays are waiting for the older generation to fight for them.

Adebanjo speaking during the 95th birthday celebration of Reuben Fasoranti, former leader of Afenifere, also lamented about the spate of insecurity in the country and said it shows that the Buhari administration has failed Nigerians.

“I have told them that in a better and civilised country, he should have gone long ago. If he has self-respect, he should have gone because everything has to fall,” Adebanjo said on Tuesday, May 11.

“What is he presiding over? Is it over corruption, security, education? Law and order have broken down in the country for the past three years. It is only because Nigerians are over-tolerance of despots; that is why he is still there.”

The Afenifere leader said the youths have also failed the country, adding that they “should be ashamed of themselves” as they have left leadership to the hands of aged men.

“The younger generation has failed the country. The country was not as bad as this when we were demonstrating for self-governance,” he said.

“They want the old men to fight their cause for them. Why should people like me be in the trenches at 93 and Baba Fasoranti at 95? Where are those in their 40s and 30s?

“When we were at their age, we were in the streets, at Lagos, London, everywhere.

“You are PDP in the morning, APC in the afternoon and SDP in the evening, and they say they are young; the youth should be ashamed of themselves.”
