You don’t hear too much about Fathers In Law, but I must say that mine was one of the best! What made him so special in my eyes, was that he was the father of six children and each one of them looked up to their Father with respect, love, and admiration.

He was a quiet man, who didn’t push himself on anyone, but he would quietly watch and mentally “figure” out whether that person was a good person or not. And then he did the most incredible thing…….he would let that new person hang themselves or fit into the family.

He was a very hard working man,supportive,a lover of agriculture, and I enjoyed watching and analysing political news with him

The way you left us,was very painful,but we have to move on,you've played your role in Life and has left for us a footprint in the sand of time, having point out to us how to build a Godly home and the very importance of Godliness...You've done your best,it doesn't matter how we left but how prepared we are for eternity....when I think about you,I know I have to be better,till we see at the feet of the Christ,find peace with your maker even in death.

Hearing the report of your demise was a hard pill to swallow. You’ve been a great father to many and a major source of strength to my husband. We do not mourn like those without hope….. Our greatest condolence is in knowing you have been reunited with The Maker……. Keep Resting in the arms of The Father, till we meet again.
Love,

Idong David-Onoja

*_TRIBUTE BY APOSTLE ONOJA PAUL UGBEDEOJO TO MY BELOVED BROTHER LATE DEACON TOM ONOJA._*

I have watch you closely in this small world as a friend and brother, which truly I can attest to the fact that indeed you are a gift to the body of christ l.
You are one man every human wants to reckon with, because of how passionate your heart is to GOD and humanity. I will never forget when we were driving together in the street of Ajakuota in preparation of EBA (EMORIKO BELIEVERS ASSOCIATION) 2022. Sharing with me your humble beginning in life and destiny, how you go through struggle to be where you are today, not knowing that, that will be our last sweet fellowship on earth.
Waking up on Monday morning 21st of Nov.2022 with a shocking news of your sudden death, when your service is greatly needed, it was so disheartening but who am I to question God.
Death might have taken you away quickly but you live forever in our hearts
⚡ To all of us present here today, the greatest achievement of a man in all his activities on earth, is to make eternity his no one priority as Jesus admonished us in (Matt 6:33) / David admonishment in psalm 116 : 15.
*GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR YOUR SACRIFICE AND SUPPORT TO MAKE THE BURIAL A SUCCCESS*

Daddy, I forever will continue to cheerish these past few days spent with you. Amidst your pains you showed so much strength, you never let your condition place any iota of limitation on who you truly are,
A CARING FATHER, A FIGHTER, and a VICTORIOUS MAN.

Your words on that bed still refreshes my spirit when you called us as your children and in your exact words you said.
'when I say pray, pray. You need to be spiritually sensitive'
I also cannot forget your timely affirmations saying
'GOD IS ON THE THRONE, I AM VICTORIOUS'
In as much as I try to be strong I can't help but express my humanity and what pains me most was I never knew your last words to me was going to be that phrase
'Don't stay long'
when I had to let you know I need to go freshen up but in all, God be praised.

It never came across my thoughts that I will be writing this because I was so sure you were coming out alive and strong but as Apostle Paul would say, your living was solely on Christ and your death is Great gain.
The Enemy thought he's put out a light but he's mistaken as your light just gained more intensity and would be shinning through us.

GOODNIGHT GOD'S GENERAL
indeed You were VICTORIOUS.

TRIBUTE TO MY PRESIDENT
How mysterious is this death that suddenly stripped you away from us. Indeed, it is a terrible blow. "But precious in the Lord's sight is the death of the saint".
  You were a leader with a difference, your leadership drive and traits really inspired me without measure. You used to confide in me and even seek my opinion in every issue concerning Men Fellowship before our executive meetings. Indeed, you are a great leader, the vacuum you left in OGHC Men Fellowship, only God Almighty will help us to fill it.
   In the area of my farm business, you have been a source of encouragement to me, most especially this year that I lost my rice farm. You stood behind me and continually advising and encouraging me not to quit farming that God will surely compensate and reward me for my hard labour next year.
  You have really inspired me in the area of giving especially to God's project.
   Some are living but dead, some are dead and gone forever. But you are dead and will live forever in our hearts because of the positive ways
you touched our lives.
   May the good Lord accept you in His blossom.
ADIEU! ADIEU!! My President.

REST WELL GENERAL

From a distance I had always admired your humility, your love for God and love for your family. Your towering presence in church could not be missed every time I visited home.

You will be remembered for your passion and exploits for the kingdom. Weldone sir! You were relentless to follow through your evangelical outings in the Villages, the souls won and for leading the men in OHGC to come together and rise to what God has called them to be: fathers, gate keepers, prayer warriors, providers etc.

During your last week on this side of eternity I experienced at close range your unwavering faith in God:
1. Inspite all that was going on with you and around you, like Job - I saw you judge God faithful!!
2. I saw what it meant to set one face upon God as a flint!
3. You remained a man of prayer even with the tracheostomy tube inserted as your amen during prayers was still thunderous!

You will be greatly missed sir, but we will not mourn as those without hope. So our hearts are at peace, confident that you have received your crown of glory and are with our Lord Jesus.

Rest well General.
Salute!

Dear Daddy,

I was so confident that you will smile at us again physically but I guess you are smiling down at us all from heaven.......
Each time I came to the hospital there was improvement and it gave me hope,you even spoke to me on the 19th which was the first time in all the 14days you spent on the hospital bed unknown to me, that will be the last time I will see you physically.On the 20th of November the day of your demise I came to the ward but went straight to mummy's bedside and concluded I will see you when I come back upstairs. I went to see a Doctor downstairs then one thing led to another and i couldn't come back to see you,when I heard of your passing on to glory on that same day,It became clear to me,you already told me goodbye in that last communication between us.
Your gentle and loving self will forever be remembered and missed...........

Tribute to My Daddy
My great daddy
Tall, dark and handsome
A very hard-working man
I hate the fact that I have to write my tribute to you
I hate the fact that I won't see you anymore
I hate the fact that I have to say Goodbye
I choose not to say Goodbye
I know you're here with me reason I have so much peace
I watched you struggle to stay alive
You gave up, encourage yourself with prayer and still fight to stay alive with all the pain you pushed yourself till you couldn't
I know how much you fought and prayed when you can in the hospital
You are a fighter Daddy
We share such great bond
I choose not to recall the memories of things we did or talked about together cause I know you want me to be strong for Mummy
I watched you die while I was holding your hands and I cannot forget how many times I went back to look at your face
I just couldn't wrap my head around the fact that you gave up on me even after we made a pact
I was scared to my bones and you gave me peace and strength like no other
You've made me realize that you're with us every step of the way and that's the more reason I shouldn't do anything you won't approve of
I'm not writing about the memories I have of you and its too early to write about how you're going to see me through every phase of my life henceforth as my special angle
All I can actually agree and confidently say is that I love you
I can just imagine you smiling right now and calling me “Marvelolo” and me “Daddysticko”
I love you so much
Your daughter - Marvelous

It's sad that we have had to lose you at this time, but we give thanks to God for a life well spent.

A book would not be enough to describe your humane life and contributions to all of us (extended family, in-laws, neighbours, community, etc.) as a peaceful and loving father.

You lived a life that surpasses the moral benchmark which is seen and reflected also in your children. Your passing brought back childhood memories of the Bible teachings I got from you during morning devotions.

We take solace in knowing that you are at the bossom of our Maker.

Adieu Daddy.

May God bless your soul.

Amen!

A TRIBUTE TO OUR BROTHER TOM ONOJA
When that phone call came on that faithful night and was told that sister Ladi Onoja wished to talk to me, I thought she wanted to find out how far we have gone in getting a house for the family and obtaining a police report.  However, the rude and shocking news was broken that you had gone to be with the Lord. I am still yet to come to term with the fact that you are no more.
How I wished that fire incident didn’t happened that night. Thought it would have been a refining fire but it turned out to be a consuming fire. We are consoled by the fact that you had the opportunity of mending fence with God. If there was any to mend.
Your demise has created a big vacuum in the church in general and Kaduna zone of OHGC in particular.
You were committed in the church in the following areas
The pioneer President of Men Fellowship both in Township Church and general OHGC church
A strong member of the intercessors
A member of the thanksgiving committee between 2015 and 2020
Your attitude to giving to God’s work is second to none.
“God gives the bird their food, but He does not throw it into their net” This was your driving principle in life. You believed that success in life is not doing the things which we like to do but liking to do the thing which we have to do.
I have learnt this belief from you that there are two changeless source of solid happiness; first, the belief in God and second the habit of hard work towards useful ends. Hence, according to Edison “ I never did anything worth doing by accident nor did any of my invention come by accident, they came by hard work.” Since the news of your death, the rate at which members of the community comment on your hard work shows how much your hard work influenced and affected their lives for good.
Your attitude to hard work in sung more even in death than when you were alive. The world would remember a person for his deeds and not by the number of awards or friends he had.
You will be ever remembered for the hard work, love, care and encouragement through the teaching and preaching of the word of God you gave to those around you.
The marks you have created on the sand of our time will never be wiped off.
Blessed are those who slept in the Lord. We hope to meet you on that faithful resurrection morning when we shall meet to part no more.

Aitomun, J.O.
On behalf of OHGC

A General Has Gone So Soon.
Your sudden exit is a very painful one. After that great miracle of deliverance from the inferno,we prayed God to restore you completely, but there came His will to be done. We can not question Him but submit to His Sovereignty.
This is a reminder to the adage 'the world is a stage' where we all at our time and turn play our parts. Once we are done,we take our bows and exit. There is no doubt you played your part well.
Bro. Tom Onoja was the National President of Our Heritage Gospel Church Men' Fellowship, Ajaokuta. This body he laboured so passionately to form in the church to see the purpose of God for men is fulfilled. We cannot forget your immense contribution to the success of our second year anniversary. The vacuum your sudden demise has left for us can only be filled by God Almighty. May God preserve, protect and bless all you worked for and left behind in Jesus name. We'll miss greatly but God loves you more. Adieu Bro Tom.

TRIBUTE TO THOMAS ATTAH ONOJA
Omatayi, I didn't know that Thursday, the 4th of November, 2022 was the last day I could see you in good health. All our prayers for your survival failed because your time was up. It was difficult for me to believe that you are no more. Iam deeply crying in my heart.
I'm missing you for so many things; your companionship, wise counseling, friendly chats, your ever smiling face, and above all, I and my family are missing your closeness and kindness.
At last, we have surrendered to the will of our Creator who decided to call you back home now.
You were a lover of peace and mankind. May the Almighty God forgive your shortcomings and grant you an everlasting life.
Adieu, my in-law.

My name is NURSE ABUBAKAR DANJUMA DAFA.

I am an employee of University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada - Abuja FCT. I work in theTrauma Center ,I C U.      

HOW I COME TO KNOW LATE DEACON ONOJA THOMAS.         
On 7th of November,2022 I was OFF Duty that day, but at about 9:00pm I called my colleague there to ask her whether we have a patient in the unit,she replied yes there's a patient in the unit brought shortly before taking over. I immediately told her am on my way to assist/help her,because I knew she was alone on duty.Reaching the unit within 15 minutes,I met Late Deacon Onoja Thomas on bed with SEVERE Burns Injury.i was seriously touched to see a human being in that state of health.

IMMEDIATELY I MADE UP MY MIND TO SACRIFICE THAT NIGHT FOR HIM.i called my family to inform them.
After he was reviewed by the consultant he ordered that tracheostomy be done to ensure good and patent Airway.ENT came and ordered for tracheostomy tube size 8.5,I observed that Brother David and his brother don't know Gwagwalada very well and DADDY needs that tracheostomy.i joined them in the car to show them shops that we can get it but we couldn't get it . We came back to the hospital around 1:00am.I was on my fit closely monitoring him until 7:00am when the morning Nurse took over,after handing over I went to Daddy to tell him sir am going I wish you quick Recovery,he then asked me a question that "" are you coming back in the night '' I said yes sir,he said thank you may God bless you I said Amen sir.That question he asked is something I will never forget in my life.that was why I made up my mind EVERY morning and evening to see him . I do go and see him in burns unit to assist them in his care,because :
1. He is a human being that have a soul like us.
2.That living soul required assistance/care/help,that was why I put in all to see if we can rescue the life but it was his time.
3 .I observed he is a man of God , he dedicated his life for service of Humanity.I pray his Gentle soul Rest in perfect peace Amen and May God Almighty console and Comfort the entire family for this irreversible lost Amen.

TRIBUTE TO MY GALLANT HUSBAND

In tears,i will forever MISS YOU. I know this vacuum can never be filled except with the help of the holy spirit ,
Though no one knows the time of demos ax , but not so soon as this honestly, I had thought we could still live long together ,for some reasonable number of years. Sad how a house where we had slept and woke for the past 16 years got razed completely by fire fiesta that almost claimed the lives of two of us, if not for timely intervention of neighbors who broke the wall of our room and brought us out .
I had so much hope you will make it, because I saw you recovering fast. Only God knows what suddenly went wrong because nothing is hidden from him.

“Hello husy” as I fondly called you, you were such an amazing hard working man, no dull moment with you ,so much beautiful dreams of great future.

God has no abandoned project and for him to spear my life and with hope & trust In God your aspiration will be fulfilled.

Your love for EMORIKO Believers Association (EBA) had no equal or match.
By the special Grace of God EBA will not die because of your demise. There will be greater expansion.
All Born again children of God of ADUPI EMORIKO will team up to even make it more successful in Jesus Name.

When I was insisting you must come to us, demanding that your spirit & soul should return back to your body you revealed that you are okay where you are and that we should focus on serving God, that you are so sorry to have left me alone. With you making heaven, an grateful to God but humanly speaking leaving me alone is so dreadful for me, with God i will be alright .
God knows His and He wish you to be with him now. So it shall be well with you, Me and the Children too in Jesus' name.

You were so proud of your wife attaining the Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Accounting (Ph.d.) and had hoped we benefit it together .
My external examiner & Board members congratulated you as collective achievement. God will help me to be a blessing to your immediate and extended family in Jesus Name.

In death, as Jesus carries all your dreams that you work so hard for will be achieved in Jesus' name.

I loved you so much my gallant hard-working husband but God loves you more

Goodnight until we meet at Jesus' feet.

YOUR WIFE

My daddylolo as I foundling call you.
' _your reply will be my unecity/unesquare_ '.
I'm still in shock on your demise,I wish it a dream someone will wake me up from....
Moment like these word appears to be debilitating .without questioning ⁉️, Almighty God takes what is His, and what He gives is His, and to all things He has appointed a time.
Death leaves a neuralgia no one can cure especially the circumstances at which you passed.
Our hearts still twinge in misery for what it meant to loose you no one will ever know. You were a father whose value can never be forgotten.
There’s a place in our hearts no one can fill. We miss you and always will.
The loss of a father no matter how old you are changes your life forever, you never really get over the loss, you learn to live with the loss and he is never far from your thoughts.
When I think of all moment shared with you I can't imagine you are not here with us I can't ask for a better dad.
I believe you are in a better place with the Most High God.
Keep resting in the Bossom of the Lord

Oh Daddy!! I still feel it’s not the right time to write this note, but then again there’ll never be a right time to write a love note to a loving father.

Your selflessness, drive and resilience is one trait imprinted to my DNA amongst others.
You taught me how to trust God, unity in family, I watched you pray at nights, I saw strength physically and mentally, you handled pressure with such calm prowess, I’m glad to call you Father, Dad and Friend. Thank you for all words of wisdom and direction.

It really hurts to say goodbye but be rest assured your legacy lives on
I still remain a man of few words but of more action like my father.
Love you Dad - Your son David

1. My Father in-law, my Senior Friend, my Daddy, so sudden you had to leave us to life eternal in Christ in this manner. It's with mixed feelings and deep sadness/sorrow I write this tribute, though knowing your are resting in Christ Jesus and in God.
2. It was just like yesterday, during my wedding to your first daughter when you personally accompanied me into the Fulani's tent to buy the Caw for the wedding. We gisted and played as friends. Always full of smiles. You were such a humble man, God fearing and an honest gentle man. Always ready to forgive anyone even before been hurt.
3. A man committed to his family, God and the things of God. You loved helping people even when it's difficult to. You loved farming. I remember going with you to farm at Ajaokuta. I remember when you took me to Adupi on completion of your house. You were so happy.
4. While on hospital admission in pains from burns you never stoped asking of your wife's (mummy) health state. You were indeed a loving Husband, a loving Grand father, a wonderful father & a senior friend. I remember the goat you bought for your first grandchild Ojochogwu Akubo.
5. I will surely miss you. My Wife, Your grand children have not stopped crying over your sudden departure to eternity. You were indeed a GREAT MAN who has touched lives in various ways.
6. REST ON IN PERFECT PEACE IN CHRIST, GREAT MAN, My Daddy, my Father in-law and my Senior Friend. REST ON GREAT MAN

My dear father,

I feel deep pain in my heart at the sudden way out of earth, indeed no one knows the end but the Almighty .Hence , Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

I told you I was coming back ,I left you in an improved state on Saturday to remobilize and you died the following day. How do I manage all of these raging excruciating thoughts? O Lord I receive of your comfort.

You loved life and you fought the mortal pain until you transformed ! You have seen a better place of no pain but eternal rest .

Memories,memories and memories are all I have.
Your smiles , witty conversations ,your stern look, you had a place in my heart and you still do as it is irreplaceable.
Your joy for your grandchildren is amazing.

I am thankful for all you were to my mother,siblings and I .You impacted on your siblings and the community of people you were privileged to associate with. I have heard good testimonies of you and my heart is pleased to know you were Libra, compassionate and hardworking.

You have lived and you live on ...

God bless you my dear father.


Rest on...

You don’t hear too much about Fathers In Law, but I must say that mine was one of the best! What made him so special in my eyes, was that he was the father of six children and each one of them looked up to their Father with respect, love, and admiration.

He was a quiet man, who didn’t push himself on anyone, but he would quietly watch and mentally “figure” out whether that person was a good person or not. And then he did the most incredible thing…….he would let that new person hang themselves or fit into the family.

He was a very hard working man,supportive,a lover of agriculture, and I enjoyed watching and analysing political news with him

The way you left us,was very painful,but we have to move on,you've played your role in Life and has left for us a footprint in the sand of time, having point out to us how to build a Godly home and the very importance of Godliness...You've done your best,it doesn't matter how we left but how prepared we are for eternity....when I think about you,I know I have to be better,till we see at the feet of the Christ,find peace with your maker even in death.

Hearing the report of your demise was a hard pill to swallow. You’ve been a great father to many and a major source of strength to my husband. We do not mourn like those without hope….. Our greatest condolence is in knowing you have been reunited with The Maker……. Keep Resting in the arms of The Father, till we meet again.
Love,

Idong David-Onoja
