The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Mudashiru Obasa has described the late spokesman of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Mr. Yinka Odumakin as a great man, who fought endlessly for the country and the Yoruba race.
Obasa made the remark on Tuesday when he led a delegation of lawmakers from the Assembly to the Lagos home of the bereaved family to condone with them.
The Speaker and his team were received by some civil society groups as well as the widow of the deceased, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin.
He described the late activist as a man who never deviated from whatever path he believed should be taken.
“It is an opportunity to urge others, particularly the civil society, to continue from where he has stopped and to put more efforts beyond what he achieved.
“This is because it is not yet El Dorado. We have to put more strength, determination and commitment to get this nation to the position of our dreams.
“To the family, the truth is that life is created in such a way that we come and go and people will come and say one or two things about us. It is only God that will remain,” the Speaker said.
He also noted that this is the reason every human being must strive to make impact and touch lives positively while alive.
