The Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) has disowned the duo of Yinka Odumakin and Jimi Agbaje, saying they are no longer members of the group.

A statement by the Programme Officer of the group, Segun Balogun, stated that the group was surprised that the media are still linking both Odumakin and Agbaje to membership of the group when they have left long time ago.

“We are surprised they are still being linked to ARG in the media after some attempts we have made to notify the public. A particular report even described Mr. Odumakin as “leader” of ARG.

“This notice is not to diminish their contributions to ARG in anyway but state the truth about their membership status.

“Since the past two years, all our media relations is being conducted by Mr. Kunle Famoriyo, who took over as ARG’s Publicity Secretary after Mr. Odumakin left.

“Similarly, Architect Ayo Osunloye became the substantive Lagos Coordinator of ARG more than a year ago, after Mr. Agbaje left.

“The ARG wish the duo well in their endeavours but they should not be linked to ARG in the present tense. They maybe linked to ARG in the past tense as a former member, and who knows, maybe in the future tense too, but certainly not in the present,” the statement said.
