“The Foreword to the book is written by none other than the enigmatic pastor and social crusader, Pastor Tunde Bakare, while the Chief Presenter is


Zacch Adedeji, Executive Secretary, National Sugar Development Council,” Odumakin said.

Odumakin further said due to COVID-19 regulations, attendance at the event is strictly by invitation and participants are to register ahead of time.

“While he lived, YO devoted his entire adult life to the pro-democracy struggle; the defence, protection and advancement of fundamental human rights; and the pursuit of an egalitarian Nigerian society where none is oppressed or denied of the basic necessities of life.

“YO’s abiding faith in God was beyond question and he hallowed Good Friday, the day Jesus Christ was crucified, setting it apart to meditate on the life, times and crucifixion of the Saviour of mankind.

“Little wonder, then, that the Lord chose the same Good Friday to take YO home; we are in like manner choosing the same occasion to flag off the first anniversary of Yinka’s transition.

“April 2nd and Good Friday will, therefore, remain important signposts in all activities dedicated to keeping the memory and legacies of YO alive,” Odumakin also said.
