Stephanie Linus Commiserates With UNFPA On the Passing of Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin

Nollywood star and Goodwill Ambassador of UNFPA for West and Central Africa, Stephanie Linus signing the condolence register at the UNFPA Office in Lagos to mourn Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, Executive Director of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.

(6 February 1949 – 4 June 2017).

Today, I remember a great man, a renowned global public health leader and a beloved father who passed on recently. Dr Babatunde Osotimehin, who until his death a few days ago was the Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is someone whose contributions to reducing maternal mortality and promoting universal access to reproductive health always served as an inspiration to me. It’s sad that he is gone and I commiserate with his family and loved ones. He will always be remembered for his passionate and diligent service.

Rest In Peace.
