"Sir what can I say? It is God,s will. You were a true man of God, a rare creation, you were a father to all, friend, brother, loving, caring, strict, open, an embodiment of humility, simple, confidant, adviser, intercession, truthful and most importantly you loved God. You taught me the art of intercession. For the 27 years that I have prayed in your cell God used you to teach us so many things in the area of prophetic assignment. You nurtured the children and saw them up to adult. You just handed one over to her husband and you couldn't stay to see your dreams fulfilled in the lives of the young men. All the same I thank God for making me know you. I cherish every moment of it. Thank you for everything. Good night true son of God. By His grace we will love the Lord as you advised us to do. Rest till we meet again. Nkese Mkpanam"

"OH DEATH, WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE SUCH A GREAT MAN, PROPHET AND LEADER.  SIR, ME HAVE DROPPED SEVERAL TRIBUTES FOR YOU; WHICH I AM SURE YOU CAN'T SEE. I KNOW YOU CAN HEAR ALL OUR CRIES, I AM SURE YOU ARE SMILING AT US FROM HEAVEN. THUS, YOU HAVE NOT MISSED YOU PRIORITIES. YOU   CAME, YOU IMPACTED, YOU SAW AND YOU CONQUERED. I CRY ONLY FOR THE GENERATIONS THAT DIDN'T AND WILL NOT GET TO LEARN(FIRST HAND) FROM YOUR GOOD CHRISTIAN MORALS AND TEACHINGS. I SAW YOU AS A FATHER AND ON THAT FAITHFUL DAY WHICH I NEVER IMAGINED; I SAW MYSELF CARRYING AND LEADING YOU TO THE MORTUARY. I WEPT, WEEP AND AM STILL WEEPING. THAT HAS NOT CHANGED ANYTHING, SINCE GOD HAD ALREADY CONCLUDED. BUT IN ALL ETTE, I THANK GOD FOR COMING IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH YOU. ADIEU ELD.

"Lord i praise you for a gift so dear, a man you called and handed over all the children and kindred of Ishie to. The Abraham of our time. You gave him a mandate to love and teach the children the Godly way to go, that when they are old, they will not depart from it. The truth is, sir, you did as God instructed you decades ago and kept doing even until he Called you. We are the accomplished evidence of your great work, but we leave God to reward you, thou faithful servant. I attended a bible quiz under your tutelage, came out victorious and also remember every word of encouragement every time i fall short of standard. You wept when parents challenged your called and you always lived to remind them of Gods call on children. You brought us together and thought us that God is love and the reward for living in obedience. I am bitter that you are not around for my wedding, but happy that you showered your blessings on hearing the news. Your children all over the world will miss you. But we still hold onto the strong foundation you laid. May your soul find rest in the bossom of God Almighty. Amen"

"Oh! Death, where is thy sting? Just wen I started talking to some the Children u raised in Sunday School back in the days on the need to come together and celebrate u this December, it pleased the good Lord to take u away from us. I think he prefered to reward and honour u personally. I can't question him, but I'm so damn sure that u r a better place. Rest on Sir Sunday School."

"I hate to hear the tales of death
I hate when 'death' feels like it has succeeded
I hate to hear that a good mentor won't be seen again."
