Papa and his wife were bosom friends and inseparable. He was a good man that maintained a quiet and unassuming disposition. Also, he lived a good life and you did your best possible to celebrate him at all opportune time;

The Lord giveth and He taketh. Let us, as believers, take solace in the Scriptures and believe that he is with his Lord in Paradise.  My condolences to Mama, Gabriel, Dorcas, you and Moji and to everyone who is affected by this demise;

My gratitude to the Vice Chancellor of our alma mater, the University of Benin and the medical team of UBTH for their excellent medical assistance at the critical stage of Papa’s illness;

In Islam, we say: inna lillahi Wahina illahi rajiuna: From Allah (God) we came and to Him we shall return. Be comforted with these words, knowing that it was Papa’s time to depart from this temporal world. May his soul rest in perfect peace”.
