"Nike my cousin, where do I start? A woman of courage and wisdom is gone, leaving a big gap that can never be filled. You will surely be missed by all of the family, especially your siblings. Nike loved to bring a smile to everyone she came in contact with from what my mum told me.  You have been the rock behind your sibling's success and  may almighty God give them and the rest of the family, the heart and strength to bear your loss. It's a shame I haven't seen you face to face, but only spoken to you on the phone. Nike may the Lord almighty grant you internal rest. Amen. Until we meet again my dear cousin."

"The news came to me direct and brief,"we lost Nike this Morning." I went blank, was that a nightmare? It was a bombshell. However we take solace in the fact that you lived for the Lord and you are resting in the bosom of the Almighty God. "O death where is thy Victory, death were is thy Sting."For all the precious gifts you and siblings showered me with, for all the visits when I was not putting up with you;for all the time you accompanied your husband to see me off at the Airport. I will never forget. We love you Nike, but Jesus loves you most. Adieu. RIP till we meet to part no more.From "your Mother -in-Law"Auntie May""

"You always treated me with a lot of respect and consideration. You were never shy about your views and I was never restrained from sharing my own thoughts. There was never a dull moment…

My father had and confessed a lot of respect for your incisive wit as I did; and you would burnish a write-up or two of mine…

I came to you with a ragtag idea; but you understood it, articulated it, saw its potential and even started resourcing it without any prompting from me…

I came home on one of those difficult days and we embraced and I could feel you say, “Look at me, Oje; look at what I have become…”

I visited on another of those difficult days and you wanted to break down in tears once you saw me; but you noticed I came with someone and you quickly switched, composed yourself, put up a strong appearance and started fussing over hosting us…how could you be in such pain, such distress, such helplessness, and still want to be so hospitable..? That switch – it happened in a flash; but I saw it…

I brought the guava you had been craving for and you kissed the fruit and my hand before you devoured it…

I think you smirked when I made to leave the Sunday before…I think you didn’t 100% approve of my leaving…

We want to be with those we love when they walk the last mile of their way. But I think the pain of this mile was too much, too personal to be felt by anyone else but you. I was with you sometimes; but I cannot say I was there…

And the last time I saw you, you had gone – while I slept, haunted, you slipped into eternity…

All these thoughts wrench my heart and flood my eyes…

Your memory is immortal. A long goodbye, my sister-in-law…"

"Aunty Nike, my amiable boss. I have so much to say about you having worked with you directly. I must say that your type is rare, God only sends a few people like you at a time. You made my stay at WorkStation memorable and enjoyable. You were more than a boss to me, you were a big sister and a friend. I could tell you anything and I will always appreciate the listening ear, the love and concern you showed me. You always shared your lunch with me and the monkeys behind our office (laughs).
You were extremely capable, fast thinking, very intelligent and you talked almost at the speed of light!! I'm laughing through tears, your memories still bright and fresh in my heart. I miss you already, it hurts that you're no longer here but I take comfort in the fact that you are in a far better place. I'm sure you've caught up with your friends and parents already. Rest in peace dearest Aunty Nike, till we meet to part no more......."

"Dear Sister Nike, you left us too soon. When I saw you on June 20, 2016,  I did not know that was our final meeting on this side of eternity. You were  so warm and loving despite your situation. Thank you for sharing your life with us and for your generosity. My husband and I remember the roasted peanuts you gave us in February.  I thank God for your life and all the lives that were touched and brought to Christ through your witness. I most especially thank God for your marriage to Amaize and the evident love, joy, and peace in your union. It is very hard to imagine how he is coping with your loss but we know that the Holy Spirit will comfort him as well the Adesuyi and Ojeikere families. Till will meet in Glory, ADIEU."

"I don't know what to say but i actually have to say something. I cant believe that you have gone so soon My Dearest Aunty Nike Ojeikere. I told you that am traveling, but l will comeback soon. I didn't expect not seeing you again. On your birthday, I saw you in my dream happy, you said goodbye and takecare in the dream, that you are going. I never knew this is the meaning of your goodbye, the next day you sleep in the Lord. You are so wonderful, easygoing, humble, fun to be with, you are a virtuous woman of God. I love u so much and i cant forget all your good legacy you leave behind. I believe God loves you more, because i keep  asking myself 'why did you die now', but i strongly believe that God Almighty knows everything.Seeing you in my dream saying goodbye with joy and happiness signifies that you are happy to see your Creator. Rest in peace my good lovable Aunty, my adviser, all is well in Jesus name.Your good legacy never dies, knowing you is the best thing that happens to me. You live in my memory forever.

"My dearest Adenike,

Can't recall exactly when we met, because it seems like "we've known forever", using your common expression. However, I remember clearly meeting you at Terra Culture, V/I where we went separately for a literary evening, you wore a long skirt and blouse with a light blue headtie. We got introduced; we spoke; we clicked, the rest is history.

Thereafter, we stuck together like 'White on Rice' as you became not just my bosom friend, but my sister - as Amaize used to say. We laughed, we cried, went for hospital visits, literary events together. We shared so many things; including clothes - your house was one of the very few places I could comfortably go to anytime of the day, or night and stay over for days.

We also shared some uncommon and common things - Political Matters - we used to volunteer to monitor elections at Surulere polling booths; Environment Matters - you were passionate about cleaning the streets of Sabo area of Yaba and took me on several walks to see the filth that had accumilated in several places there ; Children Matters - you became my Technical Advisor at Children And The Environment,CATE and took several poetry sessions during our Green Festivals; Literary Matters - you became one of the frontrunners of the Women Writers of Nigeria and Association of Nigerian Authors (Lagos Branch); Health Matters - you joined in my advocacy for " a Greener and healthier lifestyle.

We prayed together - for our families, our health, children, work, Nigeria, and everything in-between. I know you are resting in the bosom of your maker,  but I miss you plenty, plenty!!!"

"Regrettably I never met you Nike. Yet I knew that you were beautiful because it reflected on Amaize. Looking at your photographs I see a life well lived despite the battle that you had to fight. Your arms are laid down and you are at rest in your father's arms. Amaize my friend,  there are no adequate words... The Lord will see you through."

This tribute was added by Dom-jabronski Ajabor on 10th October 2016


What can I say. You still owe me that visit to Port-Harcourt. We kept talking about it and you and hubby (Amaize) promised that very soon you would make the trip. We (my wife and I) still have your room all cleaned up and ready for your visit. Yeah, true that exigencies of work and other commitments had delayed the trip but....Oh 'Nike, I still find it sad that you've left without saying goodbye. Our hearts are heavy. Very heavy. But I know you have gone to the right place. I know you are at peace where you are. Rest in Peace!!!"

"All I know of you Adenike Ojeikere was through the eyes of your husband Amaize. And yet without so many words I got the picture of you. A perfect soulmate to Amaize; his other half; the woman that gave him pure unadulterated joy. So that even before I spoke to you ever I knew you to be a beautiful soul. Amaize had searched long and hard to find you Nike. And he will forever cherish your years together. His life has been so beautifully enriched because of you. In spite of the pain of your ill health. He thought to grow into a ripe old with you but it is not in how long but in how well life's race is run. Adenike you have run your life's race well to the end. We know that in your dark moments you took solace in the unconditional love of Amaize and your unwavering trust in God. We miss you dearly but you are finally free of pain Nike and that has to be our consolation. Sleep in perfect peace dear sister. And may your final dwelling place be in the highest of heaven. Ameen."

This tribute was added by Adaora Otubelu on 9th October 2016

We did not meet, so my consolation is 1 Thessalonians 4. That we will meet again, for this is not the end. You have simply gone ahead of us, to your Father's rest. Until we meet, May God's peace and comfort be ours who you have left behind.
Glory be to our God for the wonderful Gift that was you.

"A woman of God, beautiful soul, unique and outstanding, your intelligence unnerves me. I cant forget my first encounter with you, how you analyzed and proffer solutions to my worries was so amazing. You assured me you will pull through and I had faith that you will but God had other plans because HE loves you more, I was in church last Sunday and I looked back in a bid to perform our Sunday rituals (THE LEMON PLUS) and found your seat empty, it was then that reality set in. I will miss you greatly, rest on my beloved Sis, till we meet to part no more!!!"

"Our loving Sister Nike Ojeikere, our PRO, The Chairperson – Alaka FWI District Rallly 2014 Planning Committee, very hard working and committed co-labourer in His vineyard….. adieu our  Sis. Nike Ojeikere passed on to glory. You have gone ahead of us and we trust God to meet again at the feet of JESUS.

This has gone to show that, life is just a walking dream, while death is going home. Loss always has a way of reminding us to live and love as greatly as we can.

….. But although we love Sis. Ojekere surely Jesus loves her most.
We will miss you, we know that even in your little strength, you always put in effort to do your part in the work of the KINGDOM.

Rest in the bossom of our Jesus Christ till we meet to part no more.
Remember she loved us all, we should therefore not lose heart because we'll see her again, when we all reach that distant shore.

Our prayers to her family are that the Almighty God will grant them the grace and fortitude to bear her absence and continue in the Christian race……in Jesus name.

On behalf of the Alaka District FWI Executive Members

"Sister Nike, Your journey through this part of eternity may truly be short but it has been an impactful one. Of a truth, you have ended your journey on earth but it is gladdening to note that you served your maker, ran your course and finished your race at His feet. Continue to rest in your maker, joyfully adorn your crown among the saints triumphant. Rest on dear sister, we will surely miss you but heaven deserve you more!"

This tribute was added by Princess Olofinlade on 5th October 2016

"Dear Sister Nike,
I thank God that I was privileged to have met and known you. It only hurts to know that you are not physically here anymore to fellowship with us. But as Paul would rightly say, to live is Christ and to die is gain (Phil. 1: 21); you are finally resting, free from all the distress and anguish of this sinful world. My dear, it is comforting to know that you are with your Lord and Master, Jesus.

How can I forget your contributions to the singles fellowship in Church? Your infectious smile that delights the soul, your kindness and humbleness in all respect, your total commitments to the things of God in His vineyard? You can never be forgotten because your memory will continue to live on in our hearts. You are free from all pains now, rest on in the bosom of your dear Lord till we meet again to part no more at His glorious feet."

"Aunty Nike. I cannot believe you are gone. Who are we to question  the lord. You are a great sister to me and name sake. When I first met you , you took me like your own blood sister.
Whenever I was at the house to visit Adeola, you gave me words of advice that till today cannot forget.
You are a real germ and I know you are in Heaven watching over us. Aunty Nike I love you but the lord loves you more. Continue to rest in peace."

"I really do not know how to start. Your face can never leave my heart. You smiled, laughed and shared a lot of jokes even while you were weak. You gave me courage and built up my faith about life even when I was supposed to encourage you. You were indeed a strong woman. Full of life and hopes. Very active in our intending couples classes even when you were weak. I cannot even fit into your shoes in that class. Sis Nike, your advice, inputs and efforts were tremendous. Always encouraging. We miss you at the intending couples class. I truly miss you so deeply sis Nike. Love you sis."

"Nike; The news about your passing is completely devastating! As your second cousin, I didn't get to know you personally that much, but my oldest sister anti 'Depo always shares glowings tributes about your accomplishments.

May the good Lord console you all. May He give the strength to face this trying times!!!Our deepest sympathy!!!!"

"She was always wearing "that smile" that says "hey, just hold on, e'erything's gonna be alright."
She was my teacher in the intending couples class and she taught from the heart, the life she lived. The passion in her teachings revealed how much she wanted us all to enjoy our marriages like she enjoyed hers.
During my wedding thanksgiving in Church, though frail, she still came out to rejoice with us. I got that soft tap on my back, I turned around, she gave "that smile" again... and a gentle wave. I guess that was the "goodbye"...
Sleep Easy Sister Nike Ojeikere. May God rest your soul!"

"I have finding the right words since I heard of your departure. I keep thinking you're there, travelled, silent on facebook but not gone forever. You make words difficult to write, but I trust God to help us understand this why your beautiful soul had to go. May you find peace in Jesus Christ, as you rest in peace. You will not be forgotten."

"Well, I deemed it necessary to write to you Bro Amaize sir, your kindness led me to be a partaker of all the goodness Sis Nike had in her. You see, your wife is a perfect being. I often wonder how she came to be. You gave your ALL to her, you are an amazing person;that is the meaning of your name.
Sir, you're brave and really dedicated.
God bless you for caring...
Till death created a parting."

A priceless jewel. I don't have enough words to describe you. I knew you're a Christian because you treat everybody the same, with  loads  of respect, you have a kind word for everyone. I miss you.
We can only  come to you.
Rest in Peace."

"Words fail me but say something I must.
I met you early 80s and you were nice and friendly despite the gap between us. When you left FGGC I did not see you again until at an OGA meeting and you were still nice and friendly.
I did not know then that you are married to Amaize until I read Wole Abu's post on FB a few minutes ago. You were married to my brother... double loss but i will quickly remind myself to mourn as a person with hope.
Rest in peace, Senior Nike, as I first knew to call you. No more sorrows, no more pain.
Amaize... It is well bro."

"Dear Sister Nike, You truly have gone? It is so painful to lose a dear friend. Indeed you were just like a big sister. A true woman of God, a giver, good conversationalist. You fought gallantly with great determination and Faith until your last moment. I remember our last moments together, i fought back tears as it hurt badly to see you go through such pain. Sis Nike dear you are now resting in Peace in the bosom of our Lord! I will miss you dearly. Shalom!Olukemi Onabanjo"

"My dear Sis Nike,

Times like this, words are not adequate to convey the message of the heart.  In the midst of the emotions and the heartaches and maybe heartbreaks, we must take our spiritual lessons from your extra ordinary life.  Indeed, your life teaches that:

We must remember our Creator in the days of our youth; we must  put and leave Him at the center of our existence.  

Our lives must bless others by giving, loving and serving.  

God is Faithful and still hears our prayers but His ways and thoughts are far above our own.

We must remain faithful to the Faith till the end, no matter what.

God will be with us in life, He will be with us when the time comes that the best that our loved ones can do for us is to cover us up and leave us to ourselves; He will be there in the dark to be our Light and finally, He will be on the other side to welcome us into Himself Ps. 16:10-11.

That the believer is blessed indeed because he or she gains either way according to Apostle Paul in Phil. 1:21.

Whilst we pray for ourselves, we should care physically – God bless sister Lara Oniti and sister Kemi Oduwaye and their families.

Sis Nike, I remember:

Your beautiful voice in the Sanctuary Choir; as a singer, I picked that. That day you rendered Ewi in Oriki of our great God, I was moved to tears by the gift of the song you offered that day.

Your testimonies about the unconditional love of your husband and his family, may God bless them.

Your generosity, the gifts; that unique stainless steel fruits holder is still in my kitchen.

How fast you speak, it is fast thinkers that talk that fast.

Your professional write ups.

Your wit and the sparkles in your eyes; the sparkles were there, throughout.

Your dedication to the singles fellowship.

The ‘’fellowship’’ after the house fellowship; talking and sharing peanuts, apples, bananas, malts; God bless daddy and mummy Amosun.

How you came to church even with your last strength.

You have taught me personally; just by the way you lived.  

As you join the choir in heaven, we are persuaded that we are sealed with His Spirit and we will not miss His appearing whether in rapture or in death.

Our prayer is that God will heal the hearts of your husband, extended family, friends and we your brethren in Foursquare Gospel Church, Sabo; may He grant us length of days in peace, joy, strength and fulfillment of His purpose for our lives.

Good night angel, you will be cherished forever.

Lots of love from David & Olawale Adegboyega"

"Even on your sick bed, you taught me how to trust the Lord the more, how to be calm even in pains. You were so kind and so loving. I cannot forget your love for the things of the Lord, especially when it relates to women and children. Even in the midst of your health challenges you still sponsored our FWI breakfast meetings and Mother’s day. Oh! how FWI longed to see you fully recovered, how we longed to dance with you in thanksgiving! All the same, my sweet sister, we will still dance together when we all meet in the presence of the Master. Sister Nike, I am so certain that you are resting at the bosom of our Lord and our Master. My sister rest on, you have finished your race, rest on Sister Nike, Rest, solider of the Lord. You will forever live in my heart. Love you always dearest sister"

I write with heavy heart, having to share a sunday school class with you gave me an opportunity to know you closely and i  am amazed by your simplicity and unassuming nature, your love for God was truly contagious and depth of wisdom was liberating. I believe i speak for all your students when i say you're irreplaceable.

You will be sorely missed. Till we meet at the master's feet.

Rest in peace"

"Dear Sis Nike, though we met just once, i can't say that i knew you so well. Be that as it may, i'm convinced you must have been a very lovely person as attested to by Bro Amaize and even Bro Ehiz. May you rest peacefully in the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ."

This tribute was added by Adeyinka Abodunrin on 4th October 2016

"I write this with great sadness over the unimaginable loss of a good Sister.
She fought a brave and strong. This beautiful woman, inside and out, was a wonderful sister to me, supporting me and my other colleagues with her gentle and caring nature.

One of her beliefs in life was the importance of being authentic with people, saying what needs to be said because it’s good for the relationship and for the soul. Unfinished business causes pain and having peace is essential for a healthy and joyful life. Also, I always admired how she never judged or forced her opinions on anyone, but offered valuable and truthful advice that I will surely miss.

Aunty Nike was loving and real. She was a wonderful woman to everyone.
Her beautiful spirit will live on through her legacy.

I love Aunty Nike but God loves you most.

Adeyinka Abodunrin (WorkStation)"

Can we believe what others say of a better place,
Where our beloved ones rest in God's warm embrace?
I should be happy you're free of pain and sorrow,
And rejoice that you'll always have tomorrow.
How can I then be so heartbroken and selfishly cry,
Return to me from that peaceful place where you lie!"

Now I look down at your name on a cold hard stone
That says little of the loving light you have shone;
It tells nothing of the wonderful person you were,
And only serves to remind me of the painful loss I endure;
But I know your kind soul wants no tears or pain,
Instead you'd want warm memories and love to remain.

Although I cry and stand grief-stricken by your grave,
I promise not to forget the loving memories you gave;
But still I miss you so very much my sister dear,
And your caring words I once again long to hear;
My heart's only solace is one day I will see you as before,
Beckoning me to come join you on that white distant shore.

I believed that you're with the LORD, Rejoicing, Resting  and we shall see you later. we missed you. R I P"

Glory to God for His ways are not our they are better so we know you are in a better place, no pain, no sorrow. We miss you Physical presence but we know death is Gain. You Gained.

"ADENIKE AMAIZE: when all of our earthly struggles draw to a close, there will be but one question, on every  tongue left to mourn us; what will she be remembered for? In the darkest recesses of the hearts of men, our deeds, good or evil, are measured and stored, in the silence of time.
So much has been said of your, all recounting the nobility of your sojourn, here. I had the rare privilege of meeting you with my Brother      Amaize, in the precincts of Igara. One occasion. One chance meeting, but I've always looked forward to seeing you again. You were receptive, cultured and humble. The spark in your eyes spoke of one who saw only the beauty in life. You were beautiful and your soul, was pure.
Now that the curtains are drawn between us, we shall sure miss you! We are comforted however, in the knowledge that one day, when the trumpet shall sound, heralding the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, to receive His own unto Himself, we shall meet again; happily in that land where there's no pain, no sorrow, no parting.
  Sun re o, Nike, wife of my Brother Amaize"

"As the days go by, the void of the vacuum you left will dawn on us. It will not be easy to bear but we pray we are comforted by the realisation that when that horn blasts, we shall eternally live in bliss. Rest in peace angel - that was how Amaize described his spouse. Rest In Peace."

"Since my dearest friend and brother Amaize got married from the beginning he spoke to me about his wife Nike, with deep love, affection and respect. I was happy because my dear friend had found his soul mate. How many of us can say that with sincerity? I communicated with Nike through Amaize and when I met her earlier this year (2016) in April, I felt like I had known her for a long time even though we didn't really know each other. I always "knew" her through Amaize's eyes. And what eyes!! I think of her in the present because she will always be in the hearts of all who love her and met her. In particular, I am thankful to her for the love, joy and memories shared between her and my brother Amaize. I am grateful that these memories will sustain him through the pain of this very significant loss. Words are not enough to bring consolation but I continue to celebrate this wonderful woman who was a true companion, friend and sweetheart to my dearest friend. Rest in peace Nike, you are a true gem."

"We had not much more than a passing encounter some years ago, but she left a memory of a sweet, lovely woman and a beautiful presence. Gone much too quickly. May the good memories remain and spread ever outward."

This tribute was added by Erin Haney on 3rd October 2016

"Nike was an incredibly lovely and warm-hearted person. In Bamako, Lagos, and Porto-Novo, Nike's spark, her wit, and conversation made such a profound impression on me. Nike was truly a woman, I thought, who is as kind, warm-hearted, clear-eyed, and generous as our beautiful Amaize, and a true equal partner in their creative life and love together. They are so luck to have each other.

Dear Nike, we miss you, and to Amaize and all her family, we send condolences.

Damirifa Due. Love, Erin and family"

"We get to times when what we hold dear and tightly loosen their grips and transition to life beyond. Beloved partner and spouse of an amazing man, may the paths of glory light up with your presence and may your soul give succor, resilience and comfort to the loved ones you left in this world. May your transition offer you peace and rest in eternal bliss. Amaize, stay strong and focused in her love as you help her cater for those she left behind. May her soul rest in eternal peace."

"Wow! to say i am shocked is an understatement. i just ran into this sad news via Wole Abu's post on facebook. I am still reeling from the shock. I had the opportunity of working with you on Qontrar, we were not that close...but you left an impact. i never imagined this will be the context within which i will next hear of you.You were a pillar for Utibe Ukim...and I know recovery for him will be a long process. My heart goes out to your husband and all the loved ones you left behind. God will give them the strength to go on...and may your memories continually bless them.
Rest on sister. Rest on. Your story might have ended ...but it LIVES on forever in many hearts. Ciao"

"I saw a mail of your memorial, I couldn't hold the pain , just got to know you but was as if I've known you for long, I can't easily erase your smile from my mind, despite the pain u still give me a smile.
I asked myself one day, this love between this two ,have I ever seen it before ???
Amaize  wow me one day he said ,' I know soon my wife will get better and give me children " God please console him and his WONDERFUL friend that stood by them......"

"The gentle breeze, the crashing waves, the swaying trees and the scented flower bear testimony to the beauty of your soul. News of your passing came to me as a rude shock; I had no idea your time was that near. You've taught me a valuable lesson- never let the everyday hustle and bustle of life come between great friendship . I'm glad that we have the hope of eternal life and another place where we shall meet again face to face . As wife to Amaize, you were my sister and supporter . I pray that with the saints triumphant , you will become a heavenly intercessor for my brother that you've left behind . We shall put you to use as we did while you inhabited this realm. Pray for us, whisper your love to us in the gentle breeze, in the crashing waves, in the swaying trees and the scented flowers . Peace be upon you and my brother Amaize. Amen."

"Although I never met you but your pics on FB as posted by my friend, school mate and brother,  Amaize speak volumes of a loving,  caring, humble, beautiful and submissive wife. Death is a mystery we cannot question. It's a journey we will all undertake one day. Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord until we meet to part no more. Adieu Adenike   Amaize."

"Sometimes i wonder why people have to leave. I now know it is written and what is written is settled..... My sweet , loving, ever smiling and unique sister Nike, it's painful to bid you farewell. You were always ready to say "e se" for every care you received. As a medical person, i was scared cos I knew it was a matter of time,but as a Christian I couldn't stop joining my faith with other brethren  for His touch but it pleases God to take you home to be free of pains. Who are we to question His decision! You are free of  worries, pains, drugs, oxygen and  breathlessness. I believe so strongly that you are singing Halleluyah with the heavenly host. A Saint!
I still hold strongly to the memories of the last time together. You insisted on seeing me,  you were happy when you heard I was around. You smiled and told me to lift you up and later sat beside you where you gained comfort while helping to massage your hand. I noticed you were doing all to hang on and I must commend your effort all through. At a point when I had to leave for work on that day, you looked up, smiled and waved me goodbye not knowing that will be my last encounter with you on earth , now I hold on to the fact that we will meet again never to part no more.
Sis Nike, sun re ooo. You came , you saw, you cherish Christ and you conquered death. Forever in our heart ...... Adieu sweet and loving sis"

"May the soul of Adenike find eternal rest.  Though, I never met you, but Amaize was a school mate back in our childhood days and given his cool mien, composure, and compassion for others, I can imagine that Adenike must complement these worthwhile lifelong attributes.  Your passage must be a pain to the family, but that is a sure end for us all.  You have merely gone ahead of us.  Please find eternal peace. May the good Lord comfort Amaize and the family that you've left behind.  Rest in Peace."

"Adenike Adesuyi Ojeikere. Aunty Nike as I fondly call you.  My pretty, amiable, brainy , selfless, generous  and God fearing sister .Can't still believe you are gone. Can't fathom the void you have left amongst us.  you impacted my life in so many ways -my role model, my friend, my confidant, my gist partner, my mother, my prayer partner and much more.  You  taught  me to be a virteous wife and always encouraged me to imbibe Godly attributes in my children . You are  an inspiration to us your siblings as you ensured that our sisterly and brotherly ties remained strong .

Coming to Lagos will never be the same for me and most especially for the kids.  Can still remember your special delicacies which are second to none particularly your vegetable and okra soup. My sister the great cook. Reminenscing at the special moment we had together in April.  I will forever cherish the quality time with you my "Metaphor woman" .

Death is inevitable and we are all "tenants" in this world.  You fought a good fight and finished strong. I take solace in the fact that you knew the Lord and held on to him till the very end.  Rest on in eternal peace my sweet sister until we meet at his feet"

I remember the good times...travelling together, shelter and food at your place after a long trip, you took me in like family...You are far too kind ma, and now you rest. What can I say? We are all passing through this world, it is not our home. It is painful, but thank God for the beautiful life you lived. May God strengthen Mr Amaize and family to bear this great loss. Till we meet at Jesus feet..."

"Rev. 14:13 
Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”

Sis Nike is blessed of the Lord having died in the Lord, she rests from her labour. We give God the glory for her life.

I was privileged to be a witness at her wedding to our beloved Brother Amaize eight years ago. When one looked at them both during this period one comes to the conclusion that God made no mistake, if it were possible for Him to do so, in bringing them together.
God, because of His love for Sis Nike, needed a man to love and nurture her these final eight years. In His wisdom He chose Amaize to do this for Him. Thank God, Amaize did not fail God. My brother, be assured God also will never fail you.

Both of them have fellowshipped closely with our family co-leading our house fellowship with beloved Pastors David & Olawale Adegboyega in the past four years. Sis Nike was a sweet gentle soul to fellowship with, was much loved by young and old in the fellowship and would be greatly missed by all.

May the Lord comfort Amaize, the Ojeikere and Adesuyi families, and the body of Christ to whom she belonged.
Dotun & Biola Amosun"

"Nike my beloved sister, you were a symbol of Christian in all ramifications. Humble, respectful and cheerful. You left us in Sabo with a vacuum. Though could not see you in person in your last days due to distance but you occupied my mind and prayers. I am positive you are resting in the bosom of our lord. You've fought the good fight and also run the race, take your rightful place in the kingdom of God where there is no pain and no worries. Bless your soul my sister till we meet to part no more at the Master's feet. Adieu Nike"

"Sister Nike! You were always a pleasure to bump into in church, I loved seeing you, you truly cared. I remembered the last time you visited my house, my baby had fallen ill and I was almost loosing it as a young and first time mum but you were there to encourage and pray with us. You kept checking on the baby to be sure we were fine. That memory will remain ever green. We love you but the Lord loves you more, rest on in the Bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ till we meet again..."

"It is indeed a very painful reality that you are no more with us here, Nike. You were a wonderful human being and a fantastic poet. I remember that you also played a major role in the nurturing of the Lagos State branch of the Association of Nigerian Authors in the 1990s. May your beautiful soul rest in peace."

"A gallant soldier goes home. A gentle soul goes out with a silent whisper. A mother in Israel whose bosom flowed with compassion and grace. You were an inspiration and a consummate encourager. You were a shining star in a perverse world. It is amazing that I cannot speak of any fault in you, because I could not see any. You were an embodiment of true compassion and godliness. While we miss you on this side, we rest in the firm assurance that you are resting at the bosom of the Lord, free from all pains. You have played your part in the drama of life with dignity, poise and unrivaled virtue. We shall yet meet to part no more. Adieu, valiant soldier."

"Dear Sister Nike, you came,  you saw, you fought a good fight and you conquered. You were beautiful, charming, friendly, articulate and peaceful in all ramifications. Your smiles were captivating, your expositions were deep. You were a model of a Christian worthy of emulation, you were available and you served your God till the very end. We remembered those evenings of the rehearsals of Sanctuary Choir. Your sonorous voice, your passion and commitment. You were also exemplary in service to the women of Sabo FGC and Alaka District. You are not dead and will not die, those without Christ are the ones who die. You are only resting in the bosom of your maker. Rest on dearest sister. You were at peace with yourself while here and in peace you will rest forever. All of us will miss you and your sweet memory will linger on. Adieu. Soji & Moni Ilori"

*It’s a beautiful morning!*
*The effusing ‘aroma’ emerges- a light from the gloom(Gen 1:3)*
*What a beautiful day coming out of the dark night!*
*The sunrise impacts energy, and the flower glows*
*Creating a presence for the Good, the Bad and the Ugly*
*The favoured Good is embraced, hence*
*The battle is fierce among the trio*
*Little is known of the tenderly stalk (Matt* *26:41b), bearing the burden*
*For the clash of the Titans(John16:33)*
*Alas! The Ugly happens and the Bad dominates(Rev 12:12 and*
*The beauty went out of the morning
(Eccl 12:7)*
*The Good mourns, for the light has* *disappeared into the gloom
(Isaiah 60:2)*
*And the flower fell off its stalk.(Eccl 12:7)*

- I dedicate this poem of mine to the beautiful memory of our beloved Sister- Late Nike Ojeikere . We all know that here is *dark* but glory be to God; the Light of His presence never goes out, and this is where our dear sister is right now! Let us rejoice for we know that the unseen is more real, in fact, it gave breathe to the seen world (Heb11:3) .Our Solace as Believers is that we shall see our Loved Ones again!
