THE late social commentator and human rights activist, Yinka Odumakin was remembered in a big way as his widow, Dr. Joe Okei Odumakin, has registered a Foundation in his name.
The Foundation was formerly registered with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) as Oluyinka Odumakin Foundation (OOF).
Speaking about the registration, the widow and President of the Foundation, Joe, said,
“the purpose of the Foundation is to honour Yinka’s memory by keeping his ideals alive,”
She said the Foundation will undertake projects relating to the departed Afenifere spokesman and ward against attempts which might have the dubious motives of tarnishing his memory.
Among other eminent personalities on the Board of Trustees (BOT) is Dr. Tokunbo Awolowo – Dosunmu, who is the Chairman of the Board.
Dr. Joe Okei Odumakin said the public should look forward to more information about the Foundation, which is projected to function effectively at the crossroads where Nigeria currently finds itself by offering effective solutions to nagging problems.
