Members of the United African Methodist Church, U.A.M.C will on Sunday, 13 February hold a one-yearÂ remembrance service for one of its fallen heroes, late Otunba Adedipupo Akanni Dina.
The service, according to the Lay President of the organisation, Dr. Akinola Ogunlewe, will hold atÂ the U.A.M.C Oyinkansola Dina Memorial, Eruwon Road, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, which the late politicianÂ singlehandedly built for the organisation in 2009.
According to Ogunlewe, the late Dipo Dina will forever be remembered in the organisation for the rolesÂ he played while alive.
â€We cannot but continue to remember Dipo. HeÂ was such an humble and loving human being who cannotÂ hurt a fly, guilty to a fault and philanthropist per excellence.
â€œHe was the treasurer of the organisation, Grand Patron of the Youth Council and a member of the BoardÂ of Registered Trustees till death on 25 January, 2010, and he was instrumental to some of theÂ achievements recorded by the organisation,â€ said Ogunlewe.
And as a sign of honour and respect for him, the first quarterly meeting of the organisationâ€™s WomenÂ Fellowship earlier billed for 13 March has been brought forward to hold this Sunday in Ijebu-Ode.
Members of Dipo Dina immediate family, business associates, politicians as well as friends and othersÂ closed associates of the late politician are expected to attend the service which will starts byÂ 10a.m.
