Matthew Kukah

Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese Bishop Mathew Kukah has paid a condolence visit to Joe Okei-Odumakin, widow of the late Afenifere spokesman Yinka Odumakin, at their residence in the Omole area of Lagos.

Kukah, on Sunday, described the late Odumakin who died on April 2 aged 54 as a light to the new generation.

The cleric wrote in the condolence register, “We will remember you not with tears but with joy and hope. In a short time that you joined the race for a democratic Nigeria, you logged on so many miles.

“The journey goes on and the road is better and clearer because of the footprints you left behind as a light to a new generation.

“The future is in the Lord’s hands. It’s ours to build.”

Kukah prayed with Okei-Odumakin and her children that the peace of God would not depart from them.

“May God receive Yinka mercifully and give him rest. I pray for Joe, the children and all of us who loved you so dearly, peace be with you,” he prayed.
