"Aba Bello! There are no words..only gratitude to God. The older I get, the more I love early mornings and the more I honor the early morning principles you and Mommy instilled in us. The morning prayers, your whistling while getting ready for the day, your habit of playing the same cassette every morning. You were disciplined with time and the older I get the more I appreciate that about you. I celebrate a landmark birthday this year..your baby is getting older and hopefully wiser by God's grace. Remember that prophecy on May 13th 2006? well God is at work on it. May your generation be blessed and be a blessing. Thank you for pouring yourself into the youth that came your way. May God visit your seeds of faith upon your own seed. I've been fine all day but writing this...I've become sober..but all is well and I'm at peace in Christ my savior. Sleep on Oga Nathaniel! the original Uncle B. See you at the feast of the saints. Your daughter - Oluwaseun Opeyemi Oluwafunke"

"Warden Bello,

"You were such a great man. I dont really know if writing my tribute on this page will ever be sufficient to repay what you have done in my life between 1990 and 1994 as student under your tutelage in Christ's School Ado Ekiti. I feel indebted to you and I doubt if i will be able to repay.
As a Chartered Accountant today, I looked back, and I am so sure, I would not have gone this far, if not for guidance, early rebuke and chastisement from you. Aba Bello, thank you very much. We will forever remain grateful for the impact you made in our lives. Sun re ooo....""

"Papa "Warden" Bello was indeed a great Father, Guardian and Educator! He took care of us all as his. He was amiable, tough, yet approachable. He was loved by all. He could not be faulted. He was able to balance his personality well. He was feared, yet he was loved. I would rather be in Papa Bello's trouble than anyone else's. Amiable man. Funny and likeable. He shall be sorely missed."

His humours and jokes, his neat dress ups, his composure, his agility, tricks and smartness when outwitting dangerous students, his antics and theatrics and his big laughs. These I will always remember. When he laughs, his whole body does and you too will surely laugh. Angels are laughing with him now."

When he laughs, his whole body does and you too will laugh. That, I will miss.  RIP."
