I have received several calls and messages asking me to refute or clarify the information related to the Adoption of Dcn Dele Adesina,SAN by Egbe Amofin Oodua.

For the avoidance of doubt, both Messrs Ajibade,SAN & Adesina,SAN were in attendance at Egbe Amofin ni Eko meeting yesterday.

It is an indisputable fact that Egbe Amofin Oodua did adopt Deacon Dele Adesina SAN as its candidate for OPNBA 2020.

It is also indisputable that *Egbe Amofin ni Eko is an affiliate of Egbe Amofin Oodua* . Recall that we hosted Egbe Amofin Oodua meeting in February 2019 here in Lagos.

It is therefore correct that Egbe Amofin ni Eko stands by, and is indeed bound by the decision reached on December 14, 2019 in ibadan.

It is correct that I did pronounce that any departure from that decision could only be discussed at Egbe Amofin Oodua meeting and not at Egbé Amofin ni Eko.

I am aware that another meeting of Egbé Amofin Oodua comes up on February 22 at ibadan and I encourage our members to attend.

Finally I remind our members that irrespective of our personal preferences, Article 10 of the Constitution of Egbe Amofin ni Eko enjoins us to prioritize the groups interest in our quest for NBA offices.

I thank you for your time.
