Tribute to Daddy Dr. S.U Osemota ( A faithful Ambassador ).
It is hard to say a final good bye to our beloved father, fondly called "Daddy Ekpoma"
Daddy your demise has created a big vacuum in the lives of many because you were a worthy loving father in thoughts, words and deeds.
Your kind and gentle disposition, generosity, empathy and support to the less privileged, the needy and the poor, your good interpersonal relationship and sincerity of purpose will forever be remembered and cherished. You affected our lives positively and left a legacy worthy of emulation. Thank you so much daddy for being there for us.
Adieu ! big daddy, rest in perfect peace in the bosom of the Lord amongst the saints in Jesus name Amen.

Barr. (Mrs) Onosele Christy Ovbiagele Ndekwu.

Daddy, you were more than a "God father" in baptism to me. You played the role of a loving father not only to me but also to my children. You contributed in no small way in ensuring that my children were able to access sound tertiary education. You opened the way!

The last time I visited you before home call you asked me: "How are my children?" That showed how caring a father you were. As I look back to the last 46 years of a father/daughter relationship, I can truly say you were indeed my God father for which I am eternally grateful to God for.

Sleep on daddy in the bosom of God till we meet to part no more.

A TRIBUTE TO A LOVED AND LOVING BROTHER

My three-in-one is no more!

Was there anyone like you were?

I called you FATHER because you were there for me as one

I called you MOTHER because you did for me what a mother would do for her
baby.

I called you BROTHER because you were one in a million.

From age ten till yesterday, you were my Guardian Angel playing all these three roles in my life.

How can I ever forget you, so loving, so caring.

As a child in your care, you knew almost every challenge I was encountering and with the way you tackled them I knew you understood my feelings.

You were a brother who gave me his shoulders to lean on.

May God Bless Your Soul!

We, your siblings loved you and we knew you loved us like Nene loved us all and those who came your way.

Brother, even if you were two hundred years old, I would have still held on to the string of life, if it were possible, and would not have let you leave us. But we must pay this debt anytime and that you have done after a meritorious life here on earth.

Sleep on my cherished bother till we meet in eternity where the angels will
continue to entertain you forever.

Your Sister,
Mrs. Rachael Ali

Dear Daddy,
We remember your sermons at All Saints Anglican Church Auchi, particularly the one you titled "Who shall ascend into the hills" with your text from Psalm 24:3. You sure made a positive impact in our lives as young children and we are forever grateful to God for your life. You had such a peaceful and calm disposition. We will miss stopping by once in a while at Ekpoma on our way to Auchi but surely anytime we travel on that route, we will remember you with love as always.
Rest on Daddy for you had clean hands and a pure heart. You did not lift up your soul unto vanity nor swore deceitfully. Psalm 24:4 surely you have ascended into the hill of the Lord & you now stand in His holy place Psalm 24:3.
"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on: Yes says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours" Rev 14:13
Adieu Daddy!

Dr. Osemota’s exemplary life shine light on his family, friends, acquaintances and future generations. The remarkable impact he had on his children is readily visible through the children’s discipline, respect for all, strive for excellence, and success. He passed same attributes/gesture to the students that went through him to attain high goals in all spheres of human endeavors. Edo Association of Florida (EAF) lamented his passing with his wife and children. He will be greatly missed, may God grant those he left behind the courage and fortitude to bear the loss IJMN.

Fate and chance made our path crossed in 1978 .Dr Osemota was a very strong willed man who would never see evil and call it good.
Our paths crossed in 1978 at the Auchi Polytechnic where I was the Benin City Liaison Officer and he had just returned back from overseas and was in charge of the OGT Examination
.OGT was an opening grading testing program which brought his impressive leadership traits to his world . His dynamic ability created functionality in various departments .Our relationship blossomed when I was appointed as a coordinator for the examination center at the Imaguaro Teachers Training College on Sapele Road.
He was a hardworking astute man with impeccable excellent service delivery skills. He was an outstanding officer and an investor in the future of thousands of students whom he so greatly impacted and improved their lives . He was a positive role model and influencer.
He will be remembered by so many students who were under his tutelage as a lecturer.
Dr Osemota loved his family so much and walked the extra mile without complaining. I remember the school visits to his kids while they were schooling. He was a prisoner of integrity and fairness.
Dr Osemota has fought the good fight and received his trophy with rewards for a life so well lived.
Please accept my condolences on the transition of dear
big brother .He is forever in our hearts. May God comfort his dear wife and the entire clan he left behind. He was very dear to our family .

TRIBUTE TO A DADDY WITH AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT

A Saint has gone to meet his maker. Psalm116 : 15 says Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints.

I wish mortal men who served and made great impact in the lives of others like Daddy would never have died so that we can continue to admire and tap from their experience.

Daddy, you were so good, kind, loving, cheerful, generous, truthful, honest, a man of integrity and worthy of emulation.

For me putting pen on paper cannot adequately express your love and care. You were a father to me indeed and also to many others both young and old who grew and lived in Ebute also known as Okede, a riverine community. If not for Daddy I would still have remained an applicant till today. Even the role you played in my marriage life is tremendous, amazing and unforgettable.

The testimonies in the lips of many of your numerous achievement at Auchi Polytechnic as head of department and member of Academic Board to mention just a few speak volumes.

You have in your stay at Auchi Polytechnic produced great men and women and gave admission and employment to many people too numerous to mention.

As a Christian, your role as people's warder of All Saints Ang. Church, now Cathedral,for many years which came from pure and sincere heart with great commitment will forever remain indelible in the heart of many members and worshippers.

Although you are no longer with us physically you will forever be remembered for your goodness, for many people you put food on their table.

Good people must die but death cannot kill their good names. You are worthy soldier of Christ. You came, you saw and conquered.

Continue to rest in the bosom of our lord Jesus Christ until we meet to part no more.
          
        Rev Canon & Mrs Anthony Ovbiagele.

Dr. S. U. Osemota lived a very simple, peaceful and exemplary life that made him unique in his approach to issues of life. He had deep faith in God and I never saw him ruffled even in the face of challenges. He was a man of prayer.
His leadership skill was outstanding. As the head of department of Secretariat Studies (now Office Technology and Management), he was disciplined, transparent and very hard working. He worked with deep passion, commitment and the fear of God.
His dealings with people was characterized by his firmness; truthful and honest lifestyle.
As a daughter to the family, I didn't know Daddy from a distance but also in the home front.
I have fond memories of him both in the Polytechnic Staff Quarters and the country home residence at Ekpoma. Daddy had a listening ear and was always interested in my personal progress.
He would counsel me to be focused and work harder.
Daddy, you have joined the triumphant saints, God's generals, sleep on in the bossom of the Lord you served with great dedication and love.

TRIBUTE TO A MAN OF HONOUR
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and before honour is humility” Prov. 15:33. “He has shown thee oh man what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God” Micah 6:8.These are just few of the numerous words of encomiums that we use to depict the lifestyle of Late Dr. S.U. Osemota, the Odionwere of Isibhelua who spent a larger part of his life to display love, justice, mercy and humility. Hence the entire family of Rt. Rev’d. and Mrs. Jolly Ehigiator Oyekpen accord him this great honour he so much deserves from all and sundry. Aside his immediate family Dr. S.U. Osemota’s lifestyle of magnanimity, love and concern have impacted positively into the lives of many that came in contact with him. He was inspirational in all his ways, a fountain of unity, a father, friend and confidant to all.We will miss his physical presence but his good legacies of devotedness, commitment and diligence in all he did will linger long in our minds. May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss and may his gentle soul rest in peace at the bosom of the Lord. Rt. Revd Jolly E. Oyekpen
For the Oyekpen Family

An Inconic Academician
My Lecturer/Head of Department was a committed hard worker, despite his numerous engagements. He was always punctual to lectures, a strict adherence to standards in all respects. He was a faithful believer in Jesus, and organized the then "Good News Fellowship" in the Polytechnic Staff Quarters Auchi in the 1980s. Even when he retired, he still personally went to work in his farm. He lived a life busy in fruitful worship till he was called home. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

Daddy, we pray for a peaceful repose of your soul. Your Children will carry on with your good name. Eternal rest Grant unto him oh lord and let perpetual light shine upon him amen. Rest on Papa.

Indeed death is a comma not a period.”
I thought we would again get to see daddy but time and fate would not grant us that wish.
I remember daddy as a young child and then much later in the mid 80s at Auchi Polytechnic. I remember your unassuming humble nature. I make bold to say that some people succeed because they are destined to but most people succeed because they are determined to. Daddy your determination to succeed has propelled your children ,students and many more to succeed because you were an investor in your world . Goodnight sir .

‘Doc’, as I usually call Dr. S.U Osemota, has been my long-time friend dating back to 1966 when we both functioned as WAEC Examiners in Typewriting. We again became colleagues on the Teaching staff of the Department of Office Management of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi.
Dr. Osemota is a thorough-bred Academic whose resilience for hard work is hard to beat. He is strict, and religiously honest to the annoyance of his detractors.
He has lived long and well and it is my prayer that God will grant him a peaceful repose in paradise. Ogbuenyi C.J.C. Onyekwe.

An icon has gone to the Lord. We thank God for the life of Dr. S.U. Osemota, an upright man, an academic guru, a highly-principled administrator and a firm believer in ethics. He taught me most of the things I knew about Office Administration and Open Grading Tests. He never bowed to pressure to compromise the truth. He worked tirelessly at Auchi Polytechnic to enhance program effectiveness and staff progress. He lived a good christian life. Adieu, Dr. Osemota.

Dear Daddy,

I thank God for letting us have you this long on earth with us, adorning us with countless blessings along the way. You overcame adversity in childhood, losing your own father early and achieved great heights for your siblings, yourself and the next generation. Not only did you literally personify the meaning of “Osemota”(this one will live till evening), by getting to the ripe old age of 88, you shone brightly as a pioneer everywhere you went (the UK, the US, Nigeria). You set the precedent for the high standards expected of anyone in the Osemota clan and dynasty. Osemotas are synonymous with pacesetters because of you. You instilled in us good morals and values that I held on to while alone in Russia and will forever hold on to till the end. I have always been, still am and forever will be proud to call you MY FATHER.

As I said earlier, I am grateful to God for giving you a long, healthy, prosperous, fruitful and happy life. But it’s always hard to say goodbye till we meet again in heaven.

ABA ME !!! MY HERO !!! MY DADDY !!!

I will miss you so much till then. Continue to rest in peace, power and paradise, in the bosom of the Lord. I love you always.

Your son,


Usifo.
