Joe Okei Odumakin Congratulates Wole Soyinka On His 88th Birthday

President of Women Arise, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, has felicitated Prof Wole Soyinka, as he clocked 88, saying that his strides all through to the present moment and still counting had been of immense benefit to generations.

Okei Odumakin said this in her message titled: “The Lion is our Jewel… Happy birthday to Prof Wole Soyinka,” a copy of which was made available to Swift Reporters, noting that the Nobel laureate at his advanced age of 88 was still marching against tyranny.

An excerpt is the full text of her felicitation:

Who else is still marching against tyranny at 88?

Who is still giving space and study to humanity with full-blown silver strands?

Which Laureate is aging like fine wine on this turbulent globe?

Whose tenor still strikes today as it did in the 60s?

The strides of our own WS all through 87 and counting have been of immense benefit to generations.

We greet Kongi again as we shall do again.

Happy birthday Prof. Many happy returns.
