Dr. Joe Odumakin is perherps the most distinguished among living African patriots. She has lived a better part of her life as an activist, traversed, courageously, where even some men fear to tread and remained consistent without minding the hazards to her person in a society where critical voices are loathed by an unjust system which rewards the crook and punishes the just. She has been arrested and detained for over 17 times by agents of oppression in our society but still remained undeterred. MMS Plus observed that aside her activism, her simplicity, eloquence and high level of intellectual disposition is worthy of emulation. Her consistency and unwavering determination for survival of democracy in Nigeria made Professor Wole Soyinka describe her as “a tireless fighter whose frail bearing bellies an inner strength and resilience purpose, a veteran of affirmative marches, of crude arrests and detentions, baton charges and tear gas who has lent luster to the struggle for justice and human dignity, who remain an inspiration of men and women, old and young.” . Her presentation at the MMS Plus Woman Of Fortune, Hall of Fame last week attests to the fact that she is indeed a source of inspiration to all woman.
