The All Progressives Congress (APC) has mourned the death of Comrade Yinka Odumakin, spokesman of the Pan Yoruba Socio- Political and Cultural organisation, Afenifere.
A statement issued yesterday by the National Secretary of APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), John James Akpanudoedehe, said the late Yinka Odumakin contributed immensely towards serving the interest of Yoruba land and the progress of Nigeria.
According to the statement, “On behalf of the National Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Governor Mai Mala Buni, party leaders, members and supporters, we extend our condolences to the late Odumakin’s immediate family, particularly his wife, Dr Joe Okei-Odumakin and Afenifere.
“The Yoruba nation and indeed the country has lost a seasoned public analyst, activist, politician and patriot who was relentless in canvassing and serving the interests of Yorubaland and the progress of the country at large. He will be sorely missed.”
On this note, the party prayed Almighty God to comfort all that mourn and grant the late Yinka Odumakin eternal rest.
