Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Jimi Agbaje, former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Lagos State in the 2015 and 2019 general elections, said Nigeria has lost a towering patriot in Yinka Odumakin, who died on Saturday.

The late Odumakin, who until his death was the National Publicity Secretary of the pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, died at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) COVID-19 Isolation Centre.

In his tribute, Agbaje said: “Nigeria lost a towering patriot in Yinka Odumakin. May his Lion’s soul Rest In Peace. Amen.”

Rip!
staying in this world for any person is just for some years, highest, it exceeds hundred with few years.
heaven is real, no amount of year given to anyone who lives in it and hell likewise.
we have to be asking ourselves the next part after this world.
heaven or hell
may we sow a nice seed that will lead us or make God accepts us in heaven.

Re: Yinka Odumakin: Nigeria Lost Towering Patriot – Jimi Agbaje by wink2015: 3:30pm On Apr 03
Very sad that he neither saw a restructured Nigeria or an Oduduwa republic materialised during his life time.

Yinka Odumakin was a regular columnist in the Vanguard newspaper.

I used to read his articles where he was critical of the Buhari administration and his style of goverance.

May the God Almighty help us to comfort his immediate family.

Rip!
