A former governorship candidate in Kogi State and a front line Afenifere member, Prince Rotimi Obadofin is dead. Obadofin, who hailed from Aiyegunle Gbede, in Ijumu Local Government area of Kogi State was one time governorship candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, before it merged into the All Progressives Congress, APC.


Obadofin who was said to have died in Oshogbo, Osun State on Thursday night from ruptured appendix also contested the governorship ticket of APC in last year’s election but lost the ticket to late Prince Abubakar Audu.

The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has expressed shock over the death of Obadofin, whom he (Bello) described as a ‘frontline progressive’ who displayed exemplary zeal for the actualization of civil rule in Nigeria.

Bello in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kingsley Fanwo, described the late Obadofin as a “Pragmatic democrat, fiery human right defender and a believer in the core ethos of Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-cultural group that wrestled power from khakistocrats and returned the nation to representative democracy.”
