The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the late Afenirere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, fought for equity, fairness and justice, to ensure that such principles thrive in the country.
In a statement on Saturday by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party expressed shock over the death of the right activist and social crusader.
The PDP described Odumakin’s death as a huge loss to the nation and particularly, the PDP, given his erudite contributions to national dialogue and relentless commitment towards the development of democratic ethos in the country.
The statement said: “He dedicated his life as a journalist, human right activist and social crusader for improvement in every phase of 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 PDP also condoles 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”.
