“The board has chosen Saturday, September 30, 2023, as the date of Jimmy’s installation,” he said.

He died less than two years after losing his wife, Nomthi, a South African, on November 9, 2021, following a two-year battle with cancer.





Odukoya’s marriage to Nomthi lasted 11 years and produced two boys.




Before Nomthi, Odukoya was married to Bimbo for 21 years.




Bimbo died in the 2005 Sosoliso plane crash in Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital.
