Late Comrade Yinka Odumakin
…describes death as a setback towards a restructured Nigeria
The umbrella youth body of the Ijaw ethnic nationality, the Ijaw Youths Council has commiserated with the Yoruba Nation over the sudden death of Comr. Yinka Odumakin, who until his death, was a vocal voice of the AFENIFERE SOCIOCULTURAL GROUP as it’s Spokesman.
The IYC through its National Spokesman, Comr. Ebilade Ekerefe described the death of the pro-democracy activist as a shock and a great loss not just to the Yoruba Nation, but to every Nation within the Nigerian state that is fighting for the liberation and emancipation of its people under the contraption we’ve found ourselves.
Comr. Ebilade Ekerefe noted that Ijaw youths drew admiration from Yinka Odumakin because of its unrepentant advocacy for a structured Nigeria that will reflect the principles of equity, fairness and justice. Which is the fundamental reason upon which the Ijaw Youths Council was founded.
The IYC reemphasized how painful it is that Nigeria has lost a voice to the voiceless. A nightmare to anti-democratic actors whose sudden demise is coming at a time leadership has failed this Country at all levels and his input and thoughts to Nation building would’ve been needed the most.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, especially his brave wife, Joe-Okei Odumakin and the entire Yoruba Nation over this great and irreplaceable loss.
