VIDEO: Falana Blasts Afenifere Over Spurious Endorsement Of President Goodluck Jonathan

Prominent civil rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) ridiculed the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, over their claim that in endorsing  President Goodluck Jonathan for re-election, they believe he will implement the decision of the National Conference held in Abuja last year. After laying out the areas of the confab where Yoruba delegates failed to convince conferees, he stated that the Afenifere was not fighting on behalf of the Yoruba people.

He dismantles Afenifere's  use of implementation of Confab report as  their trump card for getting support from the SouthWest for the President.  Mr. Falana was speaking at the rally organized by the Nigerians United for Democracy (NUD) to oppose any attempt to further postpone the general elections slated for March 28 and April 11 2015.
