UN, others to pay last respect to Osotimehin


Family and friends of the late former Minister of Health, Prof. Babatunde Osotimehin, have concluded arrangements on how to pay their last respect to the deceased.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) will also play a significant role in last funeral rites for Osotimehin, who was the head of the organization before his death.

In a statement issued on Saturday by Niyi Ojuolape, who was Osotimehin’s special assistant, the celebration of the ex-minister’s life will take place in London, Abuja and Ibadan from July 10 to 21.

The event will commence with the Babatunde Osotimehin Lecture, organized by the UNFPA at the Family Planning Summit on July 10 by  5:00 p.m. at County Hall (Next to the Marriott Hotel), London, while the final funeral service holds on July 21 by 11:00 a.m. at the All Souls Church, Old Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Osotimehin’s impressive tenure as Nigeria’s Minister of Health from 2008 to 2010 was just one of the many crowning achievements of his life.
