Tinubu Visits Odumakin’s Residence

All Progressives Congress chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has on Monday, visited the Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin widow of the late Afenifere Afenifere spokesman and activist, Yinka Odumakin.

Odumakin when he was alive had been a strong critic of Tinubu.

Tinubu had on Saturday evening released a statement of tribute to the late activist.

Tinubu who said he was shocked to hear of Odumakin’s death, said in the statement: “In the course of the last two and a half decades, Odumakin and I had cause to collaborate in various organizations and in pursuit of different political causes at different times and I can testify to his capacity for hard work, his brilliance, his tenacity in his loyalty to his cherished principles.

“Even if we differed politically, I had no cause to doubt his sincerity in charting his chosen path. He will forever remain a model of what a citizen who places the good of his country above his personal interest could be. For, given his talents and abilities, Odumakin could easily have opted to focus on his personal welfare and that of his family rather than embroil himself in the several struggles he dedicated his life to.”
