The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun has expressed grief over the death of the spokesperson of the Pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, Mr. Yinka Odumakin.
In a statement released in Abeokuta on Saturday and signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, the party described Odumakin’s death as shocking and saddening.
“Yinka Odumakin, right from his early days as a young journalist at the Guardian newspapers through his activism days during the military era and later as spokesperson of Afenifere, has given a good account of himself.
” He was a journalist, social analyst, political activist and social commentator. It is very sad to hear sad news of his death at a time he could still be useful to his oganisation and nation.
“On behalf of the leader of APC in Ogun state, Gov. Dapo Abiodun, leaders and all members of our party, we commiserate with the immediate and political family of late Yinka Odumakin, the Afenifere and other colleagues of his.
“We pray that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the loss,” he said.
