“Dr Mailafiya epitomised courage, conscience and conviction. Whenever he speaks, he breaks the ceiling of fear and unsettles a nation allergic to the truth.

“He kept power on its toes with his facts and intelligence. He was a northern star who shined in the darkness of silence and surrender. He raised the moral bar with his boldness.He was a man whose truth is without a season. Like most greats and champions of freedom, He inspired many and irritated the establishment in his journey of life.

May his soul Rest In Peace.”
