Dr O. A. K. (Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye) I met you April 2004, since then you treated me like a daughter. We went through thick and thin, and laboured hard to build OAK hospitals, now that it's time to enjoy the fruit of your labour, you left us suddenly. Condolence visit and messages have been coming in from patients whom you have touched their lives, they find it hard to believe you're gone forever. You never treated me like an employee, you always seek my advice. The more I think about your death, the more my hearts bleeds, you're irreplaceable. Words cannot quantify the vacuum you have left. My daughters are very sad that you're no more. We love you, but Almighty God loves you more. May Almighty God forgive your sins . May He make you among the people of paradise. Amen. Rest in peace.

DR OLUSEGUN AYODELE KALEJAIYE(OAK) was such a wonderful BOSS to work for. Everyone in the office will miss his ready smile and helpful attitude around the office. He was always giving compliments or a helping hand to his staff. He made sure we knew we were appreciated and we are truly going to miss him.
 A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. We part with our beloved CEO in pain.

I have been unable to accept this sad reality. 
Legends never die in our dreams. Because they will always live within our hearts.
I have worked under your tutelage, I have grown....... I am proud to have worked by you and with you.
Posted by Adejoke Olawumi on June 13, 2020
Dr. Ayodele Kalejaiye was not just a physician to us in Michael Adesanya family, he was a former neighbour and family friend of over thirty years. You were a mentor as a man of little beginning who was true to his calling of saving lives and through hard work became an achiever. The success of Oak Hospital speaks for itself.
You were a generous family man, very accommodating to friends, always full of life and fun to be with.
Your passing indeed has created a huge vacuum in the family and among friends as you will surely be missed. May your soul rest in perfect peace.
From the Adesanyas

Rest in peace, Dr Ayo.

MY DEAR BROTHER

Dr Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye was the first born of my mother, and I grew up to know the real person he was after he returned from Donetsk. I was very young during his secondary education at a boarding school and when he left to study abroad.

He has ever been a very reliable, optimistic, simple-minded, brilliant, trustworthy and a man of integrity in all his dealings. All along, he has always been himself; he made his shoulders so wide for me to lean on. He constantly strived to be a "helper and adviser" to people around him regardless of whether he knew them directly or indirectly. What a great and precious gift to his generation! He was a man that made positive impacts on people's lives without even expecting to be appreciated. He would always create a peaceful atmosphere around him - he was an ever-smiling person.

His way of addressing me - "Anicky Nicky" continues to echo in my ears, and I'm finding it hard to come to terms with his exit. However, I am consoled that the unforgettable and good memories we had, to me, is like a river that can never run dry.

To say my big brother left a big vacuum in the family is an understatement, but I take solace in the fact that he fought a good fight, finished the race and left the stage when the ovation was loudest. Dr Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye, sleep on and take your rest in the bossom of the Lord. We love you but God loves you best.

The exit of an icon!! The end of an era. Your stay was brief but impactful! What a sad news! I got to know you sir by providence about six months ago. Our paths crossed and you clearly demonstrated a rare virtue of Omoluabi... trust on recommendation. My benefactor and boss, really unfortunate to hear of your untimely demise at a time the world needed you most. Words ,of course can't express my grief. My heartfelt condolences to Kalejaiye family home and abroad.
   May your soul find favour in the sight of your Creator.
   Rest on a goal getter!

Daddy! It's a privilege to have known you and be cared for by you. I lost my biological father but I gained a wonderful Father in Love. You loved and cared for us and always made sure we were doing fine. I greatly admired your intelligence and how you always put family first.
Obaloluwa would miss playing 'one, two, three, four, champion!!' Araoluwanimi didn't get to meet you but we would tell them how wonderful a Grandfather you were. God indeed knows best. We take comfort in the fact that we are sure you're in a better place, partying with the angels. You would be greatly missed and never forgotten.
We would take care of Mummy and be there for her. We love you very dearly but God loves you most. Till we meet to part no more.

Your dear Daughter in Love.

Dr. Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye(OAK), my Boss, my Mentor, my Hero. My first experience with you demonstrated a man who believes in people's capabilities irrespective of the circumstances. I became a Medical director under you owing to the fact that you have confidence in people.
Dr. Kalejaiye is a compassionate, kind and a visionary leader, who left a good legacy behind.
I am truly honoured and blessed to work with you closely because you imparted a lot of leadership qualities in me which I will forever cherish.
CEO your precious memories will remain in my heart. I pray your good works will continue to live on. May your soul rest in perfect peace.

Dr Kal as I use to call you.Your departure to glory is a great shock for me and my family. Words failed me to describe how kind and pleasant you are to humanity. I knew you about 14 years ago at Newgate hospital and when Oak Hospital came into reality, I didn't think twice before moving there for my medical needs especially ANC and Postnatal care and you featured in all my children's stories . I remember how devastated you were when i had my last miscarriaage.Haa ,Dr Kalejaiye,You're an Angel.The amazing kindness you showed to my family in September 2012 is unquantifiable. Haaa!Iku ma doro o.My benefactor!!!!. Always calm ,smiling and giving hope even when my last child CS was dramatic. I can't continue to describe how gracious you are.I will not sorrow like an unbeliever.Rest on beloved Dr Kalejaye.Your good works is speaking for you and I pray for your family to receive strength in this trying moment. Till we meet to part no more,Sun re o Dokita mi Kal.Oak Hospital family, e Ku idaro Eni rere .Odun a jinna sira loruko Jesu.

Dr Kalejaiye , it is so sad to hear about your death. I was not expecting it at all. I kept on remembering our last meeting in January when we talked at length about the continuity of OAK Hospital. Anytime I call you, you are always there to attend to me and my family. You have passion for this medical job you chose.
Hmmm.who will I call for quick response now on me and my family s medical issue...you are a rare gem..why did you leave now...we will miss you doctor...
I pray that the Lord will comfort your wife and your children. The Lord will raise someone to continue from where you stopped. OAK Hospital will be a blessing forever.
Rest in perfect peace Doctor.

I studied with Dr Segun Kalejaiye in Donetsk and left him in 1986. Sege as we call him is a complete gentle man. He was our football team manager in Donetsk. Sege has listening hear and is always ready to assist. I saw Sege last this year in his hospital with another friend Akin pelu Wasiu. I didn't know it was the last time I will set my eyes on him. Sege, you have played your own part in this world and done your best. You are a very good friend indeed. My prayer to God Almighty is that God will give your immediate family the power, wisdom and understanding to continue with the good work and the solid foundation you have set. Good bye Sege.

TRIBUTE TO MY MENTOR , TEACHER AND "OGA AT THE TOP"

I have been short of words as to what to say about the sad news about the passing away of my Boss, Mentor, Father, confidant and teacher.

My Life’s story can never be complete without mentioning him in many chapters.

I had the rare privilege of working closely with Dr Kalejaiye from 2011 to 2019.

During this period I had the honour of seeing him in ways many never got to see or know him.

He was such a simple, supportive and free minded person in such a way that you would never believe that one was talking to their boss anytime any of his doctors or staff were talking to him on the phone or directly.

My resolve to go into private practice came after many years of seeing his expertise as an astute businessman and a medical doctor (A rare trait amongst doctors).

I had the privilege of watching him negotiate deals, seal deals, make tactical and strategic decisions that made Oak Hospitals the “number one” hospital in Ikorodu.


I took over as the medical director of oak hospital in 2016 and that is one experience that has really shaped my administrative, leadership and managerial skills over the years and until April 2019 when I had to take the very tough decision of resigning my appointment, the Oak hospital family was and still holds a special place in my heart.

Sadly death as usual has played it’s role in ensuring that rare gems are whisked away abruptly.

It's hard to come to terms that you won't be a call or a visit away as always.


As we all mourn the exit of an icon, we are rest assured that his legacy would always live on as he has indeed touched many lives just as the slogan of Oak hospital is "touching lives"

Rest on Dr Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye (OAK).

You will always be remembered.

Adieu Boss.

GONE TOO SOON BUT YOU WILL FOREVER BE MISSED.

Dr Kalejaiye, you are such a Cheerful Giver , Kindhearted , Hardworking , Focused , Loving and Caring brother- in - law and you have left a big vacuum in the family .
This came as a shock , you will forever be missed.
The memories of your generosity and kindness  "especially when we are in Nigeria for holiday", you're always there for us! ...
Kids missed you!, I missed that name calling on the phone " Lara bawo ni awon omo mi nko?". God knows best .
May your soul rest in peace Dr.

THE EXIT OF A BEAUTIFUL MIND

Dr Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye was my brother-in-law. My first impression when I met him for the first time, many years ago, was - "Oh, I like this man". And it gladdens my mind that this impression lasted throughout my association with him. He was such a likeable person!

"Doctor", as he was popularly called by family members, was a great family man. He loved his family so much, both immediate and extended. It was always a joy speaking to him on phone or chatting with him face to face anytime he visited his sister (my wife) and I, in the UK. We always had good times on such visits; and during this time, he never stopped talking about his wife and children, their achievements and the good plans he had for all of them.

It will be an understatement to say that Dr Kalejaiye was a brilliant, focused and hardworking person. He moved from being an employee in a hospital (when I met him) and worked so hard with a "never-give-up" attitude, and OAK Hospitals we all know, is obviously the result of such hard work. Anytime he was on short holiday with us here in the UK, he was constantly in touch with his Medical Director, through his iPad, just to be rest assured that things were fine. I still remember his discussion with me, when I went to Lagos last year, about his plan to digitalise most of the operations at OAK hospital.

Dr Kalejaiye was also a gentle, kind and generous soul, coupled with having a good aura. I always felt at peace and happy when I was with him. He would always lighten up the atmosphere with his "never-ending" smile. I know that many people benefited from his benevolence and generosity - I and my siblings happened to be part of them. My father was on admission at OAK hospital for 30 days last year, before passing away, but Dr Kalejaiye did not charge us a "penny". In fact, he even paid for the tests done outside of his hospital, for my dad. For this, I and my siblings will forever be grateful to him, even post-humously!

Such a soul like Dr Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye is rare, and as it is often said "the good trees do not usually stay long in the forest". It is a great privilege knowing and having him as a brother-in-law. There is no doubt that the heavenly angels have recalled one of their own. Dr Kalejaiye will be sorely missed. His passing is a great shock to everyone that knew him. We love him but God loves him the most! May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace, and may the good Lord console his family members and give everyone the strength and grace to bear this irreparable loss.

Adieu "Doctor"!

DR. AYO KALEJAIYE, A BENEVOLENT PERSONALITY


The news of Ayo's demise was unexpected. It came as a rude shock. He was my classmate at Ijebu Ode Grammar School from 1972 to 1976. It's disheartening and indeed painful to hear of the death of a friend suddenly. Even more disheartening and painful if such a friend is a lovely fellow as Ayo Kalejaiye. In spite of his obviously busy schedules, he still makes time to associate and even actively participate in members' functions, being present physically and showing love with his substance. He was present in my 60th birthday celebrations last year and I can't forget his show of affection. Even during my father-in-law's burial in February, 2019, he was there for me. He also participated in other members' functions, freely giving of himself and his endowment. 


Ayo was adorable. He hosted the JOGS 72 Club lavishly at his home a few years ago and I just couldn't but admire his openness and camaraderie. "Live each day as if it's your last" is a popular axiom that Ayo Kalejaiye lived true to. A truth of all time. He possibly knew he did not have long to live. An all round excellent character always full of smiles, he touched many people's lives positively, leaving his mark in the sands of time. I learnt a few things from his benevolence.


Oh what a loss! I've been in tears since the news of his translation broke. Even my wife is devastated as she knows him quite well. The suddenness of his death makes it even more painful. Such a large hearted fellow at the prime of his career. The Lord always takes the best before corruption, is our only consolation. May Ayo's soul have a repose with the Lord. He will be sorely missed. 


We plead for the mercies of God in our midst. Noone can stand justified before God. I pray that the Good Lord will have mercy upon each and every one of us. We shall not experience sudden death in our midst in Jesus Name. Amen. As the Lord liveth, we shall complete this septuagenerian journey and even beyond in Jesus Name. Amen. I know we are all in mourning. May the Good Lord comfort us all. We are blessed as the scriptures say.


Sleep on, Ayo, in peace. A richly deserved rest.

Olusegun Ayodele Kalejaiye, OAK.
Can't still come to grips with the fact that you've departed this sinful world.

Our paths that crossed more than 48 years ago was suddenly blocked off by the cold hands of death Saturday, a day I had just decided to call you in the evening after not hearing from you for over three weeks, an unusual occurrence!

Ay, as I used to call you, you were a friend in deed in every sense of the word. Your generosity, understanding and humility will forever be remembered by all those you touched during your brief sojourn on earth.

Rest in the bosom of your maker, a deserved rest my dear friend.

Good night Ay.

Tribute to Dr Ayo Kalejaiye.

The journeys of life brought us together as teenagers and students at Ijebu-Ode Grammar School and later at Federal Government College, Odogbolu. You were a wonderful and truly remarkable person. Your smile and positive attitude to life was infectious. You were generous and always pleasant to be with. Little did I know that you and your wife's visit to us in Leicester last year will be the last we'll meet.
"Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure, you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure."
Rest in peace in the Lord, my friend Ayo. May the Lord comfort and bless the family you left behind. Adieu.

It's so sad to hear of the demise of Dr. Kalejaiye! He was one of the most compassionate and professional family doctor I've ever seen. Oak hospital was great hospital for my company through HMO. My first two kids were delivered there. I remember when my wife was to be delivered of my second child through CS while I was away in Germany, Dr. Kalejaiye volunteered to sign the consent letter on my behalf. Your staff are so respectful and professional in their dealings. He was a perfect gentle, caring and soft-spoken man.
I will never forget the day I rushed an unknown lady (fellow passenger in public BRT bus) who was at the verge of dying from unknown ailment to your hospital. Oak hospital medical personnel attended to that young lady, struggled with her life for more than 5 hours before and resuscitated her without initially asking for money or other crazy demands common to some Nigerian hospitals. Having such hospital of high caliber of professionals, owned and lead by a world class expert like Dr. Kalejaiye is a blessing to Nigeria.
As others have mentioned, the memories of your good deeds and legacies lives on. Till today, I still keep referring people to OAK hospital, even having left the country for many years. You came, you saw and you made significant and undeniable impact. May God keep your family and loved ones that are left behind.
