Doc eeee! Despite how close we are, that’s how I always called you, you understood me even when I wasn’t talking, you always understood. Your support for my husband and I is second to none, your relationship with Daivyan is something special. You are one Man that having you in our corner through the toughest of times was greater than having the whole world. I could confidently talk about everything  and anything with you, when the results were glaringly clear, I would rather hear from you, no matter which part of the world I was, you would give me a listening ear, you would encourage me, you would tell me ‘Matty! No worry! God is in control!’ Chai... who will I disturb when I need someone to bikonu? All those late nights together with my husband, only three of us planning and discussing everything, to think that you worried about everyone but never let us worry about you! Doc! To think that you carried the whole world on your shoulder and I can’t fathom who carried yours in the last hours of your time here... did I just say that? Ah! Doc eeee... no be so we talk am ooo, no be so oooo! The last 3days have been the most devastating for me, Daivyan is asking for a phone call with you Doc! Guess what I have been telling him? I say ‘Daivyan! Doc Chugbo is now an angel, now you have your own personal and special angel to pray for you up there so that your tummy never pains you again!’ Haaa... I can imagine you arguing and laughing with the angels! They are in for it mehn, they took my Doc to join them, they will learn politics, you will teach them the bible in a way they have never known it, yeah... I know they should know the bible but I don’t think they know it better than you! You will play and discuss soccer with them, I can imagine you teasing them saying ‘but you know I was trying to save her and I didn’t know her true state! Why did you have to act like that naaa?’ I can see you laughing and teasing them all around, they took my best friend and Doctor to join them, heaven is in for a good time Oh Doc! The last time we spoke, how could I have known? I couldn’t have, as usual, your patients are very personal to you and you would never discuss them with anyone no matter how close, you also never believed any case was impossible and that’s why you gave us the confidence to push to take Daivyan out at the time, you’ve been our living angel and now you have gone up to continue the work. You no dey sleep Doc! Always on the road for one patient or the other, I remember 2016, after we got back from India, several nights Daivyan was having crisis, I won’t forget the particular one, you were at my house till 2am, managed the situation, left for GRA, you were just getting to your house, when I called you again that he was in a bad shape again, you turned back, got to my place again before 4am, you were with us till about 6, money was never the problem, it was never a criteria for you to treat patients, Never! Ah! Doc, you no dey rest! Even years after, it became a routine, we would sit out late at least once every other week, just discussing everything that had to do with us and Daivyan but never yours, never yours Doc, you would listen to us but rarely talked about your problems. I miss you now greatly, who will I discuss my projects with, after discussing with my husband, I would always call you and hear your say, you never got tired of my wahala, never Doc! Ah! No be so we talk am ooooo... I can go on and on but let me stop, my eyes hurt, I can’t think, I can’t do anything, your smile is constantly in my face, your laughter Doc! Haaaa... so I won’t hear that laughter again? Ah! No be so we talk am oooo! Haaa... this one hit me but rest Doc! You need to rest, I am confident that you are up there, rest but please watch over my Daivyan, that’s what I told him you are doing, please now that you are there, can you make sure to talk to God that this pain goes away forever? I trust you to do that
Rest Doc! Rest Doc... Rest my brother and best friend... till we meet again! Adieu!

You touched every life you came in contact with. It was effortless, because it was your calling. The phone would not stop ringing on that fateful day! "How is Emeka?" How are you? Is he at home? Been calling him and he's not picking..." I started feeling uncomfortable with the incessant calls. And then...my parents sent for us and broke the news! Oh what a tragedy! I was heart broken...but God gets the glory! You impacted so much in our lives. And the children? You equipped them with so much and made it easy for me. Thank you so much Mi! Thanks for the love, the support, always telling us we can do it, "keep moving, don't stop, don't let anybody intimidate you". Oh yes you were gentle but fearless! You could take up a whole army single handedly once you believed in something! Always full of compassion, rising up to defend and care for those in need. A brilliant doctor you were, I remember when you took a patient to the UK, and you were not comfortable with the diagnosis, you told them bluntly your opinion and after series of tests, they admitted you were right and that earned you a lot of respect and admiration from the medical team. Unforgettable you are. We will always love you!

Daddy, this is Kene. I will always love you. You cared for us all. You bought things for us and always took us out. You always said, “hey guy, remove that thing from there”. You always called me guy as if we are mates. you always talked to me like your friend. You are my best friend daddy. I miss you. I don’t know where your iPad is. Mummy can’t find it. Everybody says that you were a great doctor. But you were my best friend and the best daddy in the whole wide world.

Daddy, the love you had for us was incredible. I like how you always instilled discipline in us. I always loved the way you smiled at us. You had a very wonderful smile. And your laughter is so tickling. I miss the hug you gave us whenever you’re back from the hospital and we rush into your arms just at the door. Most times, when we know you are coming back home, we will stay up late, just to see you because we knew you could get called out again to attend to your patients. mummy always yelled at us and told us to go to bed and then we will pretend to be asleep only to jump out of bed when we hear the doorbell. I love how you taught us to be focused and diligent in all that we do. We will never forget you though you are six feet under. I am confident that you are in heaven smiling down at us with so much love in your eyes. We will always love you daddy!
