Odumakin’s death huge loss to Nigeria ― PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock over the death of right activist, social crusader and spokesman to Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, saying that his demise is a huge loss to the nation and particularly, the PDP, given his erudite contributions to the national dialogue and relentless commitment towards the development of democratic ethos in our country.
A statement issued on Saturday by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the party observed that Odumakin was consistently focused on fighting for a nation in which the principles of equity, fairness and justice will thrive in every sphere of our national life.
The party added: “He dedicated his life as a journalist, human right activist and social crusader for improvement in every phase of the life in our country.
“Indeed, if Yinka Odumakin had the last pint of blood in his vein and there was a need to drop same for democracy to be strengthened in our country, he would have readily made it available
“Our party commiserates with his dear wife, Joe, who has also remained steadfast in fighting for human right, good governance, credible elections as well as justice, especially for the downtrodden.”
The main opposition party also condoled with the larger Odumakin family, the Afeniferi fold as well as the civil society community while offering prayers to God to grant our nation the fortitude to bear this huge loss.
