Island Club Crisis Deepens


Resolution of the long drawn internal crisis rocking the prestigious elite club,  Island Club, Lagos, appears far off, as warring members brace up for the final  onslaught on the soul of the club.

While some members led by the General Secretary of the club, Mr. Oluwole Iyamu and  the Assistant General Secretary, Barrister  Flavius Akerele, have fixed Monday, 22  November for an extra-ordinary general meeting of the club to resolve the lingering  crisis and set in motion processes to elect new executives to run the club, the  incumbent chairman, Chief Olufemi Adeniyi-Williams and his supporters have asked  members to ignore the notice.

Chief Adeniyi-Williams, in an advertorial, disclosed that no unauthorised  extra-ordinary general meeting of the club will hold until an appeal filed by an  aggrieved member on the crisis rocking the club at the Court of Appeal is decided.

The club’s general secretary and his supporters who had earlier fixed today for  their extra-ordinary general meeting, but shifted it to 22 November, due to the  suspended strike and the Eid-el-kabir celebration, however, insisted that the  meeting will hold irrespective of the pending matter at the Appeal Court.

In his advertorial, Mr. Iyamu declared that the requirements for the extra-ordinary  general meeting of the club under Rule 13 of “our constitution have been met and  fully complied with.

“Despite the empty threats and attempts to dissuade our members otherwise, the  extra-ordinary general meeting will hold and it is the members of the Island Club  who, ultimately will decide the fate of their club and not a self-serving minority  clique.”
