"My beloved brother, it has been a long year of sustained sorrow, pain and emotional confusion because your exit is so difficult to accept; continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord, and may the God of Abel hearken unto your cry for vengeance: Gen. 4:10; Rev. 6:9-11."
Gone too soon, still fresh in my memory.

"The great warrior, Akin, continue to reign with the Lord. You fought a good fight of faith and slept in victory smiling your way to the great beyond. In the hearts of those who treasure the virtues of honesty, selflessness and courage which you admirably exemplified on earth, you live on as a bastion of succour in a world replete with deceit, selfishness and wickedness. Miss you daily."
"Bro. Akin. You stand out in a million.
You impacted my life and ministry in most unique way. Your heart for others and commitment to God is second to non. You shall be missed by those you sheared your knowledge and ideas with. Your humility and courage in the face of hopelessness are worthy of emulation.Good night my beloved brother and friend. See you on the resurrection morning."
"Akin, I just had to come here and leave a message one more time. Difficult for me to get over it - is this anger or sadness or both ?.
I wish i had the opportunity to say 'goodbye', and i feel deprived of it. How i wish i knew, or could do something about it. Question, question and questions in my mind.
God knows the best. Rest well in his bosom....."

"Akin, you have lived a good life. You have touched the life of many people that were fortunate to meet you. Personally, I will miss you and the influence you brought to my life. I pray that Almighty God will take care of your family and the rest of us you left behind. Akin, rest in the bossom of the Lord."
"My working relationship with Akin was very fantastic and encouraging. He goes extra miles to satisfy his colleagues. We will surely miss him. May God Almighty accept his return and grant him the best place in the Paradise. May God Almighty continue to be with his wife and the children, Amen."
"Dear Akin, I did not have the opportunity others had to meet you; but testimonies from friends and your sister said it all and left me in no doubt that you’re truly a gentleman. You represented those virtues that are as true today as they were 44yrs ago- Life they say is history; a good life no matter how short makes history worth remembering. You may have left us, but you’ll be fondly remembered"
"Akin, you will truly be missed. You touched lives and we argued passionately about our desire for improvement of lives in Africa. Indeed you were a gentleman to the core. I was surprised two weeks ago that you had not commented on my status update on Facebook, not knowing that you were with our creator who loves you most. Adieu. May God grant your family the fortitude to bear this loss."

"Akin my counsellor, I still can't believe you're gone. I pray that Almighty God will grant your family the fortitude to bear this. Rest on in the bossom of God, till we meet again."

"It is with a sad heart that I learnt of your passing on and I remembered our days back in eric moore surulere (1981-1986), this were the good old days, the best days. Meeting you again in 2006 and how you had turned out was a great inspiration to me till this day. God knows best and I know he will comfort the loved ones you have left behind. it is well."
""Akinzo" I still believe I am dreaming. Just mid year we met and had a reunion in Stratford. I remember vividly our first day at work in Citi, I remember our preparation for every step of the interview process then in "Great Ife". I remember with some excitement the bond we shared in Citi. Adieu my friend till we meet to part no more."
"This is so sad. We will miss you greatly.
May the good Lord grant you perfect peace and console your family.
"Akin I am still in shock. I was looking forward to getting back in touch after a long while and when I saw your name on the link Olu sent I thought it was your business site....then I opened....and alas!. You were such a wonderful person and all these glowing tributes attest to the fact that it is not how long but how well, Till we meet again in the true land of the living. Adieu Akin"
"Akin, Akin, Akin! Why did you leave so soon? This is a terrible blow you have dealt to me. You were a star that brightens up my soul at the thought of you. I can never forget you. This world has lost a rare GEM. Rest in perfect peace till we meet at the lord's feet. Adieu."
""I still cant believe it,but i know that you are in a better place.continue to rest in perfect peace."
"Egbon, it's hard to accept that you are gone! We met at Barclaycard and became very close like siblings. You were so open and honnest with your views and guidance. I have gained a lot from your experience about this world within a short time. You know my son is your name sake; so your name will forever be called by me."Uncle Akin" Sun Re O!(rest in peace). You will forever be missed by me."
"I still am shocked beyond words. Akin, you were so full of life. I still remember your various chats on facebook, your text messages and emails of encouragement. You were a great friend and brother. I cannot control the tears in my eyes and have so many questions to ask God on this but in it all, I know He knows best. Rest in perfect peace till we meet to part no more. Regards/Dayo Sokoya"
"What a guy, full of life, ambitious and an achiever. Only God knows why you left us so soon but you made your mark in life - a loving wife with three lovely children and friends who loved you. It was a pleasure knowing you. We thank God for your life."

"Akin, we had a brief professional interaction and we became friends.It was a bolt out of the blue to learn of your passing. Good memories linger after you.
May Jehovah God Almighty grant Lucy and the kids immense grace to cope with your absence."
"You were not just a brother but also an esteemed confidant, counsellor and destiny helper. You admirably stood for the best values and ideals which your children will forever treasure as their invaluable legacies.

Akin, continue to live and reign with the Lord.
"I cannot believe that you have gone to be with your creator. The news of your death came to me as a shock. I will not forget in a hurry the values learnt while on the job.
Sleep on Boss!"
"I pray the LORD comfort Lucy and the children, it shall be well......(Isaiah 3:10)"
"My 'Uncle', like I would often call you, its like a nightmare. I met you and your beautiful family through my husband and immediately your dedication to all that was important to you was very clear...God, family, friends, work... I cannot ask God why because I know He has a greater purpose for you up there. It hurts, really does especially when I think of Lucy...well, we thank God."
"Akin, there is no good bye from me to you because you live on.....though I am broken hearted because we cannot sit together to rub minds as we've always done, but I have solace in that you knew God while you were in this world. You came, you saw and you conquered. You will definitely be missed by all, but keep sleeping in the bossom of God your creator. My brother, sun re o, o digba o."
"Akin, why so soon I keep asking the question over and over but I can't query God for He loves you more. I have come to accept the painful fact that you are no more with us in the flesh but your peaceful engaging generous person lives. My brother I miss you so much I am griefing. When Lucy said you slept peacefully I gave glory to God for a life well spent. Akin sun re o."

"Cerebral Baba! you'll be greatly missed. A very disciplined senior college.
Good night Akin."
"Since you left Citibank we have not communicated, but I never thought the next news I would receive about you will be a sad one. You were a responsible gentleman. May your soul rest in perfect peace and May the Almighy God comfort your young family and fill the gap you left behind."
"We will always remember sir Akinzo would put the privacy and integrity of others first. Also how he would selflessly help others achieve their goals even those he had never met.
He will be greatly missed by sis Lucy and their adorable children. Our prayers are with them at these challenging times; God the great comforter will bring them HIS comfort.
Sleep on sir Akinzo

"Super-dad" I called him.I can't wrap my mind round this but Jehovah alone knows & Sees."
"Akin, I wish this was a bad dream and somebody will wake me up from this dream but alas! I am shocked, saddened, and short of words…Ah! Lord!

There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Sleep well and good night"
