Former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayo Fayose, has expressed shock and sadness over the death of the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Mr Yinka Odumakin, saying he fought for justice and equity.
Odumakin died in the early hours of Saturday at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), according to a statement by his wife, Dr Joe Okei-Odumakin.
Fayose said Odumakin lived a life of justice, fighting for justice and equity for all.
The statement read, “Shocked and saddened but with total submission to the will of God.
“Yinka Odumakin lived a life of justice, fighting for justice and equity for all.
“He was a man in total defence of justice and fairness for all. He had a life well spent, not how far, but how well.
“In it all, he will be remembered for his undiluted love for the Yoruba race and Nigerians in general.
“My prayers are with his wife, children and the leadership of Afenifere at this difficult time. May the soul of Yinka Rest In Peace.”
