“If there is a reincarnation, I want to go through my life with you again. It is extremely difficult to talk about Comrade Yinka Odumakin having known him for three decades.
“He is an encyclopedia of positive activism. He was a great live wire.
“We spent 24 years together. Comrade was very selfless. The week before going to the hospital, he told me his itinerary but the physiotherapist said his oxygen was low. But, he still went ahead with his itinerary for the Nigerian course.
“All that had been said about him would always remain as soothing balm. One thing that is assuring is that his ideals will live forever,” she stated.
