Amidst crisis in the group, the leader of the apex body of the Yoruba self-determination struggle, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide (IOOW), Professor Banji Akintoye, has resigned as the leader of the group and handed over to his former Deputy, Prof. Wale Adeniran.

Adeniran had resigned from the executive of the organisation in November, citing matters of principle as the reason for his resignation.

Akintoye, a Professor of History and member of the Nigerian Senate in the Second Republic, in a letter to Adeniran dated December 5th, 2022, a copy of which was made available to journalists yesterday cited old age and “weakened body system” for his decision.

Akintoye also apologised that he was resigning from the management of the organisation when the movement was in crisis and prayed that Adeniran brings everyone together and resolve all contending issues.

Daily Trust reports that the group has been in crisis in recent times with Akintoye dissolving the World Executive Council in July.
