AfenifereThe Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) has thrown its weight behind the outcome of the Osun State governorship election.

The Pan-Yoruba group applauded the citizens of the State “for keeping faith with progressive politics that Yorubas are known for despite the heavy militarization and monetization politics that besieged them.”

In a statement released on Sunday by the group’s Publicity Secretary, Kunle Famoriyo, the group also congratulated the winner of the election, Governor Rauf Aregbesola, and charged him to renew his zeal for “welfarist” politics as exemplified by Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

“We thank the people of Osun for resisting strange politics that seeks to take root in our land. As the source of Yoruba progeny, they have shown us an example and we are confident they would be better off for it,” the statement said, while calling on all Yorubas to a renaissance of Yoruba progressive politics.
