Group splits over Jonathan’s endorsement

Lagos - Tuesday’s endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan’s re- election bid by the Pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, has created a crack in the group, reports Daily Independent.

A faction in the group, Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG), has disassociated itself from the endorsement.

Kunle Famoriyo, ARG’s Publicity Secretary, noted that the group was not a party to the endorsement and does not in fact think the performance of President Jonathan since May 2010 is worth the endorsement of any patriotic citizen.
