A former leader of Ilana Omo Oodua and the Yoruba Nation self-determination struggle, Prof Wale Adeniran, has said he has not changed his mind on the decision to withdraw from the group.
Adeniran, in a statement sent to our correspondent on Tuesday, also disclosed that he would make public his next line of action after the findings of the probe panel he requested to investigate allegations against him had been made public.
The one-time Commissioner for Education in Osun State, on Friday, January 6, released a video in which he announced his stepping aside from Ilana Omo Oodua and the Yoruba Nation’s self-determination struggle.
Adeniran’s decision to quit his position was said to be in protest of allegations bothering on corruption made against him by an aide of Prof Banji Akintoye, the pioneer head of the group.
The statement further read in parts, “I also stated in the said video that I am prepared to submit myself for scrutiny by an investigative probe panel to be set up by reputable and respectable Yoruba elders.
“This is to determine whether or not I am guilty of the allegations of financial impropriety being sponsored against me. I wish to state firmly and unequivocally that I have not reneged on my decision to withdraw from Ilana Omo Oodua and the Yoruba Nation’s struggle.
“It is only after the findings of the probe panel that I requested must have been made public that I will determine my next line of action.”
