Bola, you were such an amazing person. My daughters success story is not complete without you.
You were always willing to help and sacrifice for the success of the people around you.
Your death is still a big shock to me. Though long, straight,big and well positioned trees never stay long in the bush, our Almighty God who knows all the answers to all questions knows why this happened. I thank you for your sacrifices.
May your loving soul rest in peace - Mrs Omolara Adebanjo

Dearest in-law,
It was year 2013 that our family and that of our beloved Rev. Bolanle Akindeinde became one. This was as a result of the union between his darling daughter Adeola Akindeinde and our son Olaniyi Adenaiye as husband and wife.
Ever since then, our beloved Rev Bolanle Akindeinde had exhibited uncommon Godly disposition.
His humility, love, compassion and generosity was beyond measure.
A picture of his ever smiling face would always be in our mind which will no doubt be an indelible memory of him in our hearts.
We have certainly lost a gem, but we are comforted that he served God and lived a life full of emulation.
We are consoled that he has gone to a better place where he is reigning with the Lord.
We pray that God will comfort and support our Mummy Pastor (Mrs) Wumi Akindeinde, the children, grand children, family members and the Church of God he left behind.
Adieu, our beloved Rev. Bolanle Akindeinde till we meet on the Resurrection day.
Dele & Alice Adenaiye

The very rear and appreciable opportunity I had was your direction and was nurtured to maturity for me without stress.

You are truly with your creator as we know HE gives and takes at the most appropriate period.

The time spent cannot be forgotten by many of us.

Rest in peace Sir.

Dear Bola,
Sleep well on earth
But awake among the Angels
Live in the bosom of Almighty
Whom you have served so well
Sleep well.


Oh life! Oh death! A Sonnet for BOLA
By Olugbenga Akindeinde

Oh life! could you be so weak
to enable death to be so strong
as to force your power to leak
and cut short man’s living long?

Oh life! do you have to make us cry
by allowing death to take away
BOLA as he prayed hard to try
and create for us holy pathway?

Oh death! why deal us a cruel blow
stealing BOLA with your deadly arrow,
pulling your bow hard to flow,
and hurt us to the marrow?
Are you a pretense to salvation
or BOLA’S eternal jubilation?
Posted by EMMANUEL OZIOKO on April 12, 2021
A man with a good heart; May your gentle soul continue to rest in the bossom of our Lord, Farewell as we take solace that your soul is already with our creator,
Adieu a man of integrity.

Hmmm Uncle Bola.
I still can't believe it but who are we to question God.

Uncle Bola has always been caring and supportive to all of his family.

I remember in 1976, when I was bearly 8 years old and recuperating from an emergency operation at the Military hospital in Yaba. Uncle Bola was the person who stayed with me in hospital while my parents attended a funeral in Ijebu. We played lots of games together so that l could forget what was going on around me.

Even as an adult, uncle Bola always had this way of making you feel special. He will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace my dear uncle.

DID NOT KNOW HOW NICE AND CARING MR AKINDEINDE WAS FOR JUNIOR EMPLOYEES WHILE WORKING IN AIICO INSURANCE TOGETHER UNTIL I WORKED WITH HIM AS THE PIONEER MD/CEO OF AIICO PENSION MANAGERS.
HE WAS REALLY NICE TO ME AND PLAYED A ROLE IN MY PROFESSIONAL GROWTH IN THE PENSION INDUSTRY.
REST IN PEACE SIR.

Remembering a very special uncle.

Words can't describe the shock l felt when l heard of my dear uncle Bola's passing. It still doesn't feel real and I have struggled to write this.

Uncle Bola was kind, dependable, humble, generous and God fearing. He always showed up and was ready to help.

I remember returning to England as a young adult and being under the guardianship of you and auntie in the mid 80's. You showed a genuine interest in my progress and education, always offered me sound advice and a good grounding. I recall opening my very first bank account with you by my side as my guarantor. I was so excited.

You were a shining example of humility and one to emulate.

Uncle Bola, you will be sorely missed, but Almighty God knows best. May you rest in perfect peace.

Time may pass and fade away but
memories of you will always stay. Sleep peacefully in the bosom of your maker.

   We love you but God loves you more, continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ....Amen

TRIBUTE TO A GREAT LEADER.

it is a reality that what most of the living humanity are enjoying today are the sacrifices of the past hero's. The paced you set in AIICO PENSION MANAGERS as the Pioneer of APML that is built upon by your successors are what most of us are enjoying today.

I have not met you in person but your leadership qualities as the pioneer MD of AIICO Pensions is one thing that can not be hidden. You signed my appointment letter and I live to see how committed you are towards seeing the best is given to your subordinates.
Am humbled by your leadership style and your humility.
You are greatly missed and we are saddened by your departure but in all, am console because you have gone to be with the Lord.

              Dear Brother
You gave no one a last farewell
Not ever said good bye,
You were gone before we knew it
and only God knows why.
A million times we will miss you
A million times we will cry.
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
In our heart you hold a place,
no one else can fill
We will meet again someday
I know you are in a better place resting in the lord
I give glory to God for the right part of salvation you have chosen
You served the lord with all that you had
Heaven rejoices now for a job well done in God kingdom

Continue to rest in the lord brother
The crown of glory awaits you
It is well

My Dear Brother, Rev. Bolanle Akindeinde! The news of your demise was a rude shock and I just can't fathom why God had to call you home this early.

I fondly call you daddy because of the fatherly roles you played in my life. Memories of the beautiful moments together and values shared can never be easily erased.

You were a source of inspiration to many and have impacted my life as your baby sister in so many ways. God actually used you to build the prayer champion in me years back during our every Thursday evening prayer meetings. Daddy, your timely interventions, counselling and guidance while growing up sharpened and helped me to always have the right approach to life issues. Each time we see and have opportunities to talk after I got married, you’ll always end our conversations with an advise that by God’s grace has helped me to keep the home front. “Take care of your husband and don’t ever starve him”

You were so passionate about the kingdom business and that motivated you to continue with the ministry our biological father left behind. You gave your all to God and served Him with all He blessed you with up until your last days on earth. Thank you for saying YES to the Lord while on earth. So sweet is your memory though with great mixed feelings as I would have loved to have you much longer on earth but our God is unquestionable and I take solace in the fact that you are in a better place rejoicing with the hosts of heaven.

You will be greatly missed and I trust the Lord will take care of all you left behind; give the church, the entire family, fortitude to bear this huge loss and help us to finish well and strong.

Sleep on beloved brother, till we meet at the feet of Jesus to part no more.

It was a shocking news to learn that you Rev. Bola Akindeinde has passed on to glory.

However, I am comforted by my personal witness of your conversion and resolution of heart to honour the memory of your late biological father by your Bible based worship of God in accordance with the Truth of Jesus. You also determined to carry along the Church that he left behind on that only path to the only true God.

You have fought the good fight of faith and I believe that it is the Master that called you home for your crown of righteousness and glory in Christ.

Adieu, soldier of the gospel.

God will surely keep your wife and children and He will further establish the work He committed in your hands here for an eternal legacy.
In Jesus Name. Amen.

TRIBUTE TO REV. BOLA JOSEPH AKINDEIDE : GOOD NIGHT FOR NOW !

 Even as our hearts bleed and we mourn his early transition to glory, our consolation is in God's word , which says in Is.57:1

 " The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, non considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come".

We cannot challenge our sovereign God; He knows the best and desires the best for us. We would have loved to continue to share fellowship with you on this side of eternity, but having completed your assignment on earth for God, He needed to call you back to heaven. But we know that we shall meet to part no more. That is why we are not saying good bye to you, but rather good night, because we shall meet to part no more at the Resurrection Morning.
We miss you for now, but only time separates us from you as we shall meet again for everlasting unbroken fellowship with our Maker.
It is not good bye, but good night for now. Good Happy night rest .FROM THE AKINTUNDES.

Few days to your demise, It was all about you, i kept on remembering all that you poured into me, never knew it was a signal tht you were going to leave soon. ....Your message inspired by the holy spirit "That same Jesus" turned into a song which you approved but couldn't wait to listen...Daddy missing you is an understatement....you live on in my heart! Standing for the truth and not compromising....that path you layed down i will follow! You have a son in me.....
Rest on dear father!!!

Its with a heavy heart and great sadness that I am writing this today.
My dear Uncle Bola, it is with fond memories that I remember when you came to stay with us in London so many years ago.
You brought so much joy to us British born Nigerian girls. You taught us so much about the Yoruba culture so that it wasn't a complete culture shock when we arrived in Nigeria.
Uncle you reached out to everyone both young and old.
You were a pillar for the family.
When I came for Dads 80th in 2019 you came round for a brief visit to my parents but ended up spending ages as we where having so much fun.
I recall how you and Auntie were joking with each other and I prayed that I and my husband would have such a relationship after so many years of marriage.
Uncle you did well.
You ran your race and you have finished victorious.
Uncle we shall surely miss you but we will take strength in the fact that you loved God and the heavens have gained a beautiful soul.
Goodnight my dearest Uncle.
Rest in peace.

Dear uncle Bola,
It is with deepest sorrow and sadness but with total submission to God that i write this tribute.

You were humble and kind. You had a good heart and soul. 

You gave hope to the hopeless.

I remember like yesterday the first time I saw you, my uncle from Nigeria. To the young girl that i was then, it was as if the gods had come to stay with us. ( you came with Uncle Tunde)

You were cool, calm and collected.

The pain is much, the tears are plenty.

Uncle Bola, farewell into the light of God's Glory and that of your ancestors where there is no pain.

Rest in the power you strongly believed in.
Adieu uncle mi.

My mum's only brother, the past two weeks have been difficult for the entire Osinowo family to bear, I feel a deep wound in my heart. Your middle name was Helper, you helped every cousin,niece and nephew in your capacity. Always present at every family event be it ,your Muslim or xtian cousins, regardless of the distance, you will attend with your wife. When my dad was hospitalized, you visited the hospital severally, prayed with us ,encouraged us, You stood by us during the entire burial process. You were present for every of my landmark event. We love you and we can never forget all your good deeds.

Rest well Uncle.

My dear uncle, our G.O (General Overseer). I have known you to be so caring, thoughtful and a man who loved God. Under your quiet demeanour was a God-fearing, confident, selfless and loving man.

I remember you coming to the room where I was getting ready on my traditional wedding day, you looked at me and sensed that I was full of nerves, your prayers and encouraging words suddenly made me feel calm. You always had a word of admonition for all, sharing the word of God at every opportunity.

My children still remember our last visit to Nigeria, relieving your family's hospitality towards us. We never knew that was the last time we would see you.

Uncle, your passing has shocked us all but I trust that we will meet at the feet of Jesus Christ. You served Him to the end and 'am sure you are with Him beholding His glory.

Ha! This is hard to bear, but we take solace in the fact that we shall all meet again.

Rest well sir. We love you but Christ loves you more.

Am glad you are heavens gain.

They say there is a season
They say that time will heal
But neither time nor season
Will change how we feel
For no one knows the heart ache
That lies behind our smiles
No one knows how many times
We have broken down and cried
We want to tell you one thing
You are wonderful to think of
But so hard to be without
Rest in peace
Our dear Brother Pastor Bola Akindeinde
Posted by Bisi Omole on March 29, 2021
UNTILL WE MEET AGAIN
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile.
If only we could have you back for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do
You always meant so much and always will
The fact that you are no longer here will always cause us pain
But you are forever in our heart until we meet again
Continue to rest on the bossom of our savior.
Adieu!  pastor Bola Akindeinde

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

May the good Lord comfort and console the wife, children and the entire family, in Jesus mighty name.

Dear Uncle
Bittersweet,  painful joy, open sore with salt being poured on it. This is the only way I can describe your death. But who am I to question God? Memories shared can never be forgotten. 

The angels are rejoicing because another Saint has joined them.

We love you but God loves you more. Till we meet at Jesus feet. Sun ree o.
