The widow of Yinka Odumakin , the late human rights activist, Dr. Josephine Okei-Odumakin says if she had the chance, she would marry him again and again.
Okei-Odumakin said this on Saturday at Moro, Osun State where her husband will be buried.
She said, “Here is Yinka’s corpse. He was my friend, comrade, soulmate, and husband. If I came back to this world over and over, I would get married to him again and again.
“We are grateful to the State of Osun, for the great reception at this sober moment. When a spokesperson stops speaking, you know how heavy it is, but our consolation is that Yinka’s ideals and legacy live forever.
“He was against massive killings, he was for true federalism and a restructured Nigeria. He was for a Nigeria that works, he was for the protection of human rights, he was after doing things right.
“This is the heaviest part of my life, to speak about this comrade after knowing him for over three decades. One thing is certain, that his ideals are going to live forever.
“What he stood for will never die and the moment that his physical body will be interred, we want to plead that people should rededicate their lives to a better Nigeria for a race that works.”
