ForeverMissed
A tribute to a Great man, a man of the people, a General of the Nigerian Air Force, the welfare Oga, a loving husband, father, brother and friend to all. We celebrate a life well lived, a legacy made, a mark grafted in the stone of the Earth. we celebrate a man like no other. We celebrate an Angel who has returned to where he belongs.

After the initial shock, there is only one word to describe how I feel; pissed.
I am pissed that someone so good couldn’t keep living when so many terrible and wicked people continue to live.
I am pissed that a dearly loved husband to a graceful woman of God, a father of 4 loving children was suddenly taken away, just like that from his beloved family.
I am pissed that an amazing In-law who showed me so much love and respect, who with a unique and warm embrace each time we meet will always say to me Akaodor, it will be well; will suddenly disappear from us.
Eko! You made friends with everybody and would sacrifice your comfort for the joy and peace of others. Straight to the point, you do not discriminate.
You know what? I am consoled by the fact that your good works earned you the bosom of the Lord.
Sleep well my amiable In-law for we shall meet there and never to part again.

To the most darling of Uncles... For me, there are almost no words for this; After all, how do you say “Goodbye” to someone – when you haven’t actually come to terms with the fact that they are gone? I still wake up every morning hoping it’s a dream, and it hurts knowing you are gone forever. Indeed, we are a blessed family because you were many beautiful things to us all; you came and you conquered our hearts, ''your presence on this earth, mattered''. Nevertheless, you have left us with a beautiful legacy and it continues to shine brightly!!!
Sleep well Uncle Eko

Uncle Eko, every time I remember that you are gone, tears keep flowing down my eyes.
You left our hearts broken,I wish it was just a dream,I wish it was a movie,I wish it was a play,it is indeed a sad reality.
A man of no mean repute,a reagem,a general in your generation,a gentle and kind hearted man per excellent.
Your dead touch me,you left a vacuum in the heart and life of your family and love ones.
We are console by the fact that you came,you saw and you conquered.
Rest in peace the people's general.

                     THE EXIT OF A COLOSSUS

A mighty tree has fallen, a big gully has appeared and an irreplaceable vacuum has been created. AVM Eko Effiom Osim (Mni). A man of stature, a man with a great heart and a man of the people. Behind the military uniform was a man with such a kind, tender and loving heart, always reaching out to identify and help the less privileged. He knew no religion, culture or tribe when it came to his readiness to assist people.
His ambience attracted a lot of people around him, his house was a beehive of activities with abundance to feed on his table. He was a rare specie raised up for his time, a good man, I describe him as an Israelite in whom there was no guile. He has gone to be with his maker in a grand style.
Our prayers are with your dear wife, children and numerous siblings and relatives you have left behind. We pray for the peace of the Lord and the comfort of the Holy Spirit to guard their hearts in Jesus name. Amen
Adieu great General, rest in the bossom of your creator. GOODNIGHT.

and Prof Ebuta Bisong &
children.

Uncle Eko, your dead is a shocker to me,for many years i have not sheded tears,but your demise brought tears so freely from my eyes like a flowing stream.
When I remember your love to me,I find it hard to say goodbye to you.
You were a gentle man per excellent,a man with a golden heart ,I stand to be corrected.
You treated me and everyone that came your way with love and respect.
I recall many times at Abuja and here in calabar how we shed good memories together.
You still hard a lot to offer to our generation, you call me and told me you were coming back in a week time ,I tried your number one week later, you told me you were not back and that when you come back you will call me.
3weeks later your phone was switched off some thing touched me,I kept having signals but couldn't accept it because it was just too hard to accept the reality.
I will miss you, your soft voice, your handsome looks and everything about you.
We are consoled by the fact that though you left too soon,but leaved a fulfilled life.
May God almighty console your wife and children as well as family members and loved ones and may God grant your soul eternal rest in his bossom.
Adiu the people's general.

If I have the power to bring any body back to life, i would have done anything possible to bring you, Brother Eko back to life. But the power lies with God alone. Him alone knows why He allowed it happen. Indeed He loves you most and for this reason i return all glory to Him, even though it hurts so much. I rejoice in the memories you left us because every passing moment i see you in my mind and all you stood for, every thing you did for all and all of your siblings. you were our hero in every sense. you strongly believed and stood for every thing that promote the Osim's spirit among us all. Thus i have come to realize that even though your gone yet you live on in our heart because you are unforgettable.
Posted by Tolani Makinde on May 1, 2021
I can't believe that you are no more, A man with large heart. Always ready to shoulder your problem.
I know heaven gain an angel, we can't query God but you left us too soon.
May Almighty God grant the family fortitude to bear the loss.

It is with heart laden with pains and sorrow that I write this tribute. The thought that you have gone on a journey of no return and the thought that I will never get to hear you shout 'CHUKKYYIGA as you fondly yeiied at me whenever we met is even more perplexing and unbelievable. The times we shared together as bachelor's back then in Makurdi in the early 80's crisscrossing Kaduna,Jaji, Jos(NIPPS) will remain ever green in my memory. My second son,PRINCE whom you sheltered during his youth service year in Calabar and still paid him allowances from your personal pocket cannot fight back his tears at the news of your demise. It was Eke Nnamdi( our mutual friend )that broke the news of illness and subsequent death to me. It's hard to believe you are gone.
THE GOOD MAN AVM E.E.OSIM PASSED THIS WAY:
  A fine officer and gentleman.
  A loving husband
  A devoted and caring husband.
  A true and loyal friend.
  A good neighbour.
  A responsible and respectable
    GENERAL.
  His was a life of sacrifice and service.
  He left a life of goodness and
  contentment.
  UNFORGETABLE, that's what you are .
  Good night-AVM E.E OSIM.
  We'll meet to part no more as the
  Lord grants Eko junior and siblings ,
  madam and your numerous friends
  the fortitude to bear this irrepairable
  loss.
        Adieu buddy!!!
Posted by Godwin Nkwazema on April 28, 2021
My very special friend and brother. I will surely miss you. I always looked forward to being in Calabar sharing those memorable times with you. Your Guest House was home to me at no cost. The evening relaxation with you and your friends by the swimming pool was something I looked forward to. Our bonding began in Kaduna where you distinguished yourself in all endeavours. All Management staff of Dornier Aviation who interfaced with you in the course of duty can attest to your professionalism and excellent interpersonal skills. In Sacred Heart Primary School Kaduna we both played our part as parents in the PTA. Adieu my beloved. Rest in perfect peace till we meet again in the bosom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Posted by Adeseye Ayobanjo on April 27, 2021
Our Dear mentor and Capo suddenly left us! You informed us you were going to India for medical treatment and asked us to pray for you. I did send my prayers and like others looked forward to your return. We saw your early recovery posts and expected you back on 20 March 2021 but you didn't arrive! I was undeterred as I trusted God to give you full recovery. Sadly, but with total submission to Good, we received the news of your transition to glory!!!

You are sorely missed sir!!!!

Adieu our mentor and Capo!

My friend, brother and colleague. A fine General and a gentleman. You came, you fought and you conquered. You loved, cared and you shared and always loving. I never knew that our meeting in calabar months back will be the last with you on this mother earth. Iam saddened and in deep sorrow for your sudden departure. No words can actually describe my feelings and emotion over your departure. What a life of service to humanity and your nation you have rendered. You were unique and wonderful in your approach to issues of life. Simple, gentle, considerate and easy at finding solutions. May your soul continue to be at peace and rest in the bossom of the LORD. I pray that the Almighty God will continue to be with the family you left behind. The Almighty God will comfort your wife and children. I comesorate with your colleagues in the Airforce especially the Chief of Air Staff and the Armed Forces in general. My family and I, bid you farewell, good night and good bye as you take your deep sleep in the deep belly of the mother earth. We love you but God loves you most.

It is so sad that his life has come to an end, but death is the final stage of life.

Rest and peace uncle, we will always love you!

My heart bleeds with pain on this very day I lost a dear friend who was more like a brother. The last time we spoke on phone you assured me that you were getting better only for me to hear that you couldn't make it.
In your life you touched so many those special memories of the time we spent together will always bring a smile. Your friendship was a blessing and I will miss you so much, you will always be in my heart because in there you are still alive.
Go in peace, Rest in the bosom of the Lord until we meet to part no more.
Good Night the people GENERAL.

Getting the news of your passing from my dear friend, Razeb, hit me hard......... You were a father figure to me, a peaceful and fun loving man. I couldn't even break the news of your passing to my dad who was your dear friend. My dad always looked forward to visiting Calabar because of "AVM" as he fondly called you. I know you're resting in God's bossom and looking down lovingly on us all sir. Your memory will be forever cherished.

Uncle Eko , My favorite and dearest uncle, I loved him ever since I first saw him, he was a good man, and you were there for me and you checked up on me every second and you told me to work hard to achieve my goals. You always buy me fox cookies which I enjoyed , we will talk for hours and you make me laugh. When he visits us he will greet me in Umono and teach me
Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hands

In death, we do the same.

Uncle Eko!!!!! My dads best friend and my Second dad! Wow! This still feels very much unreal! I can’t believe that I won’t ask how you’re doing any more , I can’t believe that we will get married and you won’t be there beside my dad to give us out , I can’t believe that I wouldn’t see you both drinking and growing old together, I can’t believe you’re gone and Eko, Razeb ,Seun & Enoch wouldn’t have you here anymore. It’s shocking but I’m grateful to God for the time you spent here on earth and the many lives you impacted . I’m grateful to God that my dad got an amazing friend and brother like you to spend most of his life with . I’m grateful to God that my siblings and I had a second father to depend on ! I’m grateful to you for my Bonus 4 siblings . I wish we had more time with you Uncle. We love you so much and we will miss you!I pray Eternal rest to be granted unto your soul ! Rest In Peace Uncle , till we meet again !❤️

Deeply shocked by the news of the passing to glory of the AVM. As a Christian, I know he has gone to a better place where there is no sickness; no afflictions; no pangs whatsoever. But we will miss his physical presence. He was ebullient, bubbly, handsome, jovial and very loyal to friends and family irrespective of age and social status. He will be immensely missed. May his wonderful soul Rest In Peace. May God Almighty accept him to his right side in heaven. I pray also that God will give members of his family, friends and associates the fortitude to bear the huge and irreparable loss of the AVM. He truly was a colossus, albeit a very humble one. Sail on AVM!

My brother AVM Eko, I am so shocked to hear your demise, its still like a dream to me. I was not aware of your ill heath when I text you asking how you were doing, expecting your reply with the words "aka odor" as you usually call me.

Brother, I will never forget you in a hurry because of your love and kindness to us all. You supported me in so many ways: my mother's burial was guarded with Air force soldiers because of you; my husband's burial was supported with your finance; all my children's marriages has always been supported by your finances.
I always see joy in your face whenever you see me and this always brings so much encouragement to me. 

I will really miss you but my consolation is that you are with God.

May your soul rest in peace.

Dear AVM, your sudden death has shattered my friend's heart. She hasn't stopped posting your pictures on her timeline since you were pronounced dead, and she's been praying fervently for the repose of her dear brother. Indeed, Gift Osim lost a brother whom she revered and loved. She gets emotional whenever we speak. I have never met you Sir, but the eulogies and testimonies speak volumes of the positive General that you are. I am a Nigerian, and it pains me to see you go at this time.The entire military lost a rear gem. Adieu, Sir!
Posted by Taritimiye Gagariga on April 22, 2021
Accept my condolences please, dear family of late AVM EE Osim. A simple life. A joyous being. A backbone. A mentor. A reliable senior. A clear mind. An ultimate jolly good fellow. He honoured me with several visits to my command at Onitsha. Rest well sir. Rest well. God win
Posted by Phoebe Enyiego on April 22, 2021
AN EULOGY TO AN IMPERFECT BUT GOOD MAN, WHOM I CALL UNCLE EKO OSIM.

What would you be remembered 4 when you are gone?

Why don't we start now to love freely, give freely and forgive freely, cause life is too short to hate or hold a grudge against anyone. 

From dust we were all made and to dust we will all return someday.

When an Iroko tree falls, the ground quakes and the forest feels it.

But when a good man dies, the earth quakes, the forest shivers and the trees losses it leaves and branches, humans get misplaced and lots of mourning in the city gate. 

A good man, handsome son, brother, husband, father, uncle, friend, colleague, patriot is now sleeping.

Who will fill in that vacuum that you have left?
Who will help the poor and needy at the city gate?
Who will be the voice to the voiceless?
Who will give them hope, who will smile with everyone like you used to.
Who uncle?

Many dreams have been shattered, many hopes lost since we heard this dreadful news.

That is how you know a good man is dead, he takes a lot with him.
Uncle everyone misses you!

Your love had no boundaries, you loved all be it rich or poor.

Uncle you will listen to anyone who wanted to share their problems with you or stories, and you will create time for them out of your busy schedule.

You were very free and approachable, despite your position and power.
To you that was just and office not you.

I barely knew you, i have met you in person a few times, but i have heard about your deeds both far and near and all i have heard was ur kindness, generousity, humilty and always giving people ur time and listening ear and resources.

You uncle was close to the broken hearted.

I was once in dare need of help and the person to help me was an airforce officer i have never known before or met.

When i met him for the first time, I intoduced myself and told him " you might know my uncle, he is in the airforce in Jaji Kaduna", the officer replied asking me " What is his name and position?", 
I replied then, more than 14years back, " I'm not too sure of his position but i think he is Wing Commander Eko Osim" . 
He shouted " No way! Wing commander Eko Osim is your uncle?" ,
I nodded with a big smile!
He said " I know him very well, he is my superior, what a handsome and kind uncle you do have, how can i be of help to you?"
He made sure i got all that i wanted and more and treated me like i was Uncle Eko's daughter.

This officer did all he could in his power to help me out of a dare situation just because of the name Uncle Eko Osim, not knowing if it was true or not.
.
Just his name was enough for me to get help. A man i barely know well.

But Why will a total stranger help me because of just a name?

Because Uncle Eko built his name on love, respect and how to treat people he meets.
He loved all including his junior officers.
He loved and was loved.
Many will make things happen because he made things happen for them, cos love is reciprocal.

Everyone spoke highly of him and that's what kindness , generousity and respect for one another causes.

But the sad news is, many good people don't last long on earth reasons unknown!
They leave too soon.

Uncle Eko loved his neighbours as himself! And it has reflected then and now while he sleeps.

I read somedays back on a family post on facebook, where someone said, he used to brag because of uncle Eko, he could brag to the world because he knew him, but now his mouth has been shut by his death and he brags no more, truly sad!

That's what happens when a good man hits the dust.

A great man has gone to sleep, but too soon uncle!

I have so longed to seat with him some day and tell him how much i have loved him and appreciated him, how he has impacted my life and that of many and also share the good stories i have heard about him.

But time and unforseen occurrence befalls us all.

Now at death, i know him better from all i have read and still reading. No one has ever said any thing negative about him before and after his death.

People work so hard to enjoy the fruit of their labour, uncle you would have lived a bit more, so you can see all ur labour yeild good fruits. Atleast walk ur girls down the aisle and hold your grand children.

But your legacy still live on!

I salute you uncle Eko Osim also known as AVM Eko Osim. 

You are highly missed and we will carry you in our heart of hearts, i wish you can wake up and see the tears on all faces, you will then know how you've impacted many including me.

May your entire family and all those who have met you in one way or the other, be consoled by the promise God has promised us humans, that one day, we will see our dead loved ones again and o uncle Eko, We will see u walking out of ur memorial tomb just like Lazarus and i will get to talk to you and thank you for your kindness, generousity, humilty, mildness , self control and above all love your love for fellow humans!

A good Uncle left too soon, but we are rest assured that you are resting and soon we will welcome you back because God sees what man can't see.

We will always love you uncle.

We talk about you and when I heard of your passing I felt like I lost an elder uncle. God knows the best I pray he grant you peaceful rest and grant comfort to the entire family.

You always told me you were proud of me. You always told me to work hard and never loose hope. You always told me I can attain the highest heights if I put my mind to it and trust in God. Your last words to me was "Go and make us proud"... Your legacy lives forever and I will never forget you. Love you always Uncle. Rest in heaven till we meet again
Posted by Samuel Chuks on April 22, 2021
I definitely cannot believe this, literarily. I was just about to call mummy to check how you are doing, but here I am, seeing this and writing a tribute myself for you: something I never thought I will do anytime soon.
The sun has set, and way too early.
I met you for the first time during the lockdown in 2020, and the brief moment of our friendship has been very attractive, I cannot even put the experiences into words.
When you became sick, I believed more than ever, for a miracle. Maybe this is the miracle, an unbelievably surprising one.
You were the most generous person I ever met, very loving and amazing father. Rest on dad, death has broken my heart. The only hope is the belief that you are resting with your Maker. Rest on dad

After the initial shock, there is only one word to describe how I feel; pissed.
I am pissed that someone so good couldn’t keep living when so many terrible and wicked people continue to live.
I am pissed that a dearly loved husband to a graceful woman of God, a father of 4 loving children was suddenly taken away, just like that from his beloved family.
I am pissed that an amazing In-law who showed me so much love and respect, who with a unique and warm embrace each time we meet will always say to me Akaodor, it will be well; will suddenly disappear from us.
Eko! You made friends with everybody and would sacrifice your comfort for the joy and peace of others. Straight to the point, you do not discriminate.

You left our hearts broken,I wish it was just a dream,I wish it was a movie,I wish it was a play,it is indeed a sad reality.
A man of no mean repute,a reagem,a general in your generation,a gentle and kind hearted man per excellent.
Your dead touch me,you left a vacuum in the heart and life of your family and love ones.
We are console by the fact that you came,you saw and you conquered.
Rest in peace the people's general.

FAREWELL OGA EKO

Shared by Sani Abdullahi Zakari on April 26, 2021
Indeed like a Castle built on a sandy beach, gone too soon Oga Eko Effiom Osim! The last I saw you was at Flt Lt Aminu Sabo's Wedding Reception at Abuja where we were happy together at the High Table. Little did I know that was to be our last meeting, I could have stayed to listen more to your ever wise real life experience usual stories.

Yours was an ever lively, happy and inspired life anyone would wish to live. You have a spartan Fulani like energy, a Godly heart full of love, inspiration, kindness, generosity and above all, like late Professor Chukwuma Osakwe as well, you were full of wisdom and knowledge about everything. How I wish you had written some books or contributed to journals such that the knowledge could be retrieved!

Well God knows the best and as it was time, you had to leave as stated at The Holy Books of Quran at Suratul Baqiya (about time) and the Bible Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." So it is God's doing and we have no say.

Adious AVM EE Osim, may God grant us the fortitude to bear the loss Sir

Sani

I met AVM Osim for the first time in Dec. 2020, after hearing so much about him over the years. He was jovial and accommodating to everyone around him that day. AVM has gone to be with his creator.
