A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has paid tribute to Yinka Odumakin, National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, who died of Coronavirus on Saturday.
The activist died at the COVID Isolation Centre of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital after a brief illness.
News of his demise was confirmed by his wife, Mrs Joe Okei-Odumakin, on Saturday.
Reacting to the development, Fayose described Odumakin as one who lived fighting for justice.
He said, “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 defense 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.”
