New Yoruba leader emerges in June


A new Yoruba leader is to emerge next month, the Coalition of Oodua Self-Determination Groups (COSEG), has said, just as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Chief Vincent Ogbulafor, yesterday stressed that the late Senator Abraham Adesanya has immortalized himself.

A new Yoruba leader is to emerge next month, the Coalition of Oodua Self-Determination Groups (COSEG), has said, just as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Chief Vincent Ogbulafor, yesterday stressed that the late Senator Abraham Adesanya has immortalized himself.

COSEG President, Mr Wale Ogunlana, said that a planning committee to recommend Adesanya’s successor has been inaugurated.

He said that the committee would look at the credentials of eligible Yoruba sons fit for the position and recommend to COSEG.
“Upon the receipt of these names, we shall then look at those recommended before a decision is taken,” he said.

Ogunlana recalled that this was how the group recommended Papa Adesanya for the same position years back, adding that COSEG would remain apolitical.
Prominent Nigerians that visited the Adesanya’s home yesterday included Otunba Adekunle Ojora and wife, Ambassador Segun Olusola, Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye, Chief Abimbola Ogunkelu and Hon Nini Afuye.

Ogbulafor, who led a PDP delegation to the Apapa home of the Afenifere leader, said this was in view of the fear that Chief Adesanya was a dogged fighter who served the country well.
“He was a decent man who affected people’s lives. We needed him most when he left,” he said.

According to him, the PDP was largely touched by the death of the elder statesman when the party heard about his death during its National Working Committee (NWC) meeting.
This, he noted, was in view of the fact that Adesanya was a patriot who defended the cause of the country at all time.
