Hmmm Ngozi, it's tough to write this. The news of your passing was and is still a shock. It hurts plenty...
You were my first Mbano friend and sister, we would always greet in the popular Mbano greeting (nwanne anwu nu o).
Indeed, you ran your race worthily.

You will be missed nwanne m!

Rest in peace!!!

Madam NG, i cant still believe that you are gone just like that, i remembered whenever you wanted to get food or withdrew money you always call me to help you bcos you have trust in me and i think am the only one that has the PIN to all of your ATM.

My sincere condolences to your family, you have been a steady compass at work, supportive and a truly wonderful boss, i thank you for the encouragement and the teachings shown to me, i prayed that may the Lord forgives you all of your sins, Amin.

Continue to rest on with the Lord.

Your life here in these realms was only a beginning. And its end the beginning of greater beginnings.
You have left a remarkable mark and it will never be forgotten.
Rest on in glory.

How does one express the amazing essence and spirit of Madam Ngozi – her selfless generosity, uncompromising belief in all that is good, and her unwavering commitment to family and friends? Words, even the very best of words, cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling today.

Sorrow fills our hearts this sad moment, a sorrow that is deep and personal. Madam Ngozi has silently closed the door of life and departed from us and our lives will be empty in the areas that She had brightened. The loss is there, tangible and real within everyone but her exemplified life, love, laughter and an irrepressible belief, and faith in seeing the best in everything and everyone.

Albert Einstein said, “The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.” In one word, Madam Ngozi was a woman who gave, She gave much to her work, and that is why we are gathered here to say goodbye to her, speak in celebration of her life. Here was a life that demand notice, a life that exemplified brilliance, a life that inspired emulation, a life that burned so that others’ paths were lit, an amazing person who has played a unique and special role in all of our lives.

I have known her for this few months since I joined Cloud Exchange, She was a strategic thinker, a visionary who was brilliant, innovative, and creative. She contributed much to the development of Cloud Exchange while She generously gave us her knowledge, her expertise, and her skills.

We’ll remember her with all the special nuances and our memories from all the days gone before that we were privileged to share with her and today we’ll grieve for her, and cry, and even smile because of her.

Rest Well Our Beloved!

I remember the first time we met. You encouraged me to be confident and take on every task that I'll face at work. You first called me Mr. Muscles then Black Panther then Johnny Bravo. My fellow Man-U fan, I'll miss you Madam Ngozi.
Rest in Peace.

I still can't believe you are gone, its so hard passing by your desk everyday and not hearing you shout my name to come and work on something.
You were such a hardworker, a force to be reckoned with, so strong and always the life of the party.
I miss you dearly and I know you are resting in perfect peace.
Posted by Folasayo Odunlami on March 23, 2021
So sad and I am shocked. Ng......Nne you will surely be missed. May your gentle soul rest in peace. I pray that God gives strength to your family to bear the grief and pain.

Madam Ngozi!!!!! Sometimes I feel as though it’s not real, sometimes I feel as though you probably travelled or something, when I got the news, I honestly didn’t even know how to react, I’ld cry and when I’m not crying I’m just in shock, then I’ld cry again..very confused feelings because even though we’ll all die, and not to question God but you weren’t meant to go now, not now madam Ngozi! You were just about to reap the fruits of all your hard work.. There’s a lot of pain, there’s soo much void, I only comfort myself by imaging what you’ll do or say.. “ebere, that’s life, just be at peace with God in this life and move on” You’re worthy of admiration, your strength even when nothing was motivating, madam Ngozi you were my Mother Hen in the office, I’ll greatly miss you and I pray that our good Lord in His infinite mercy grants you peace..Amen! You deserve the eternal win Madam Ngozi and thank you, thank you and thank you for all you’ve taught and done for me!!! Rest easy ma.

Madam Ngo.... Never tot there would be a last time I would call you that. You were a light, joyful and so full of life. Your voice alone sounds like a party even when the day was just dull. You were brilliant and a truly wonderful person. You will surely be missed. Rest in peace. God is in control.

Ng Bebe...
Your hearty laughter and distinct voice take me back to Nsukka with memories of your your love and zest for life.
So sad that I would not be seeing you again...Lagos reunion would have you absent.
May your beautiful soul rest in perfect peace.
Rest in the Lord's loved Him and served Him with your all.

Mmm. Ngozi can't believe you are gone. Fggc Onitsha, UNN, Lagos camp, Lagos. Memories, memories. That beautiful face, that charming smile!! Adieu, till we meet to part no more. RIP.
Posted by Taiwo Shotubo on March 23, 2021
How can we describe someone so special in plain words. Ngozi was ridiculously happy in this life. So today, I celebrate your life, no grieving. You left us too soon, instead of seeing us become the success that you always prophesied. We love you, but God loves you more. Rest in peace my friend.

Bekee'mu, I can't believe you are gone! It's really a tough one. You have run your course.Heaven has gained an Angel. You were full of life,hopes and dreams.

I appreciate the times we had! Your passing has made me realize that tomorrow isn't promised.

May God console all your loved ones whom you've left behind.

Rest well my dear friend!

Love always❤,
Bu Sugar(in your voice)

Life is a mystery. Rest well dear friend. Ngozi, we planned to meet up so many times like we used to, but we never did. I wish we did. You were a kind soul. So funny and full of life. Never a dull moment around you. You will be missed dearly. May God comfort your entire family and soothe their pain.
Posted by Richie Ogigai on March 23, 2021
Speechless is the way to start. I came to DD and I met you. An amazing observation about you is your ever glowing "SMILE", a smile that changes the dynamics of every difficult situation, a solution thinker and very passionate about Corporate matters. We chatted a few times and in those moments you have always had a pure heart.

It's sad how life can sometimes take the best people who make our world so beautiful. NGeee!!, we miss you so dearly. I miss you so so much. Still like a dream to me. I am in shock still....I believe God who is the author and finisher knows the best.

To Ifeanyi, you are a great person with a heart of genuine love. May the Holy spirit comfort you in everyway. God will bring peace upon your heart and household. Please accept my condolences. We love you.

Ngoo,Knowing you in UNN was indeed fun. You were full of life Adangozi. A mother chicken. You were never a quite type and you combined it effectively with academic intelligence. It beats my imagination that you are gone too soon. We will sorely miss you. Chinwokwu as you fondly call me is still puzzled. Our last telephone conversation was really for catchups. I never knew it would be the last. God likes good things too, so he called your Beautiful soul home.l pray him to grant your soul eternal rest and console us all you left behind. Its hard for me to let go nor believe that l am bidding you Goodnight my dear friend turned sister. Jee ije GI nke oma. Great lioness roar into eternity.
Posted by Michael Owokade on March 23, 2021
NG, as you were fondly called. I knew you for few weeks. You were a good person. I'm still shocked of your passing away. You lived a good life. Dedicated to a great course. Never compromising. You'll surely be missed.
I am confident your name is written in the book of life.

Rest on dear. Rest on.

I guess writing on here makes it so final. Death has dealt me a couple of hands in the past year. And just when I seemed to “accept” it all and thank God for the lives, it came and took you away.

You, Ngzee, were a good friend to many. I have so much to say about you and I am really sorry I never came for you to give me that squishy hug after my mum passed last year. I am also sorry for those who never got to experience you, your bubbly self, your encouragement, your laughter, your love, your fights, your gists and most importantly your passion for Manchester United! They should make you a special jersey up there with your number on it.

Ng, you left your mark and I think I’m consoled with that. That there’s no way you’d ever be forgotten. Everyone will remember you because there will never be another you.

One of the amazing things about you, Ng, was that your parents knew your friends and colleagues. Even those they had not met. It said a whole lot about you, Ng. You carried people “on your head.”

You were our friend. And you remain forever in our hearts.

I hope you’ve met my mum. Please give her a hug for me.

I love you and rest forever, dearest.

Aww nne o, where will I start. It has been so hard since I got that call. Our friendship was one of a kind with all our families included. I wished we had stayed longer on our video call the last time we spoke a few days before I got that dreaded news. I have tried rationalizing and playing different scenarios for a change but alas nothing has changed. I love and cherish you my BFF. Your godson is so sad, but I told him you are in a better place. We had a different plan but those won't come to pass on this side. I am holding on to all the memories we shared. Rest on my beautiful, happy, bubbly bestie until we meet to part no more. You will never be forgotten!
Posted by Kamogelo Kotane on March 22, 2021
It is with great sadness and shock that I learned of your passing, it is true "the good ones go first". I will forever cherish your friendship and time we spent together. You are gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
Posted by Abubaugo Lane on March 22, 2021
Ngo, it hurts a lot to say goodbye when the story has just begun. Death! You have left us vulnerable.

Onwumeregini? This is often a question we ask ourselves when death leaves us helpless. Most times we plead with death to spare us (onwubiko or onwuegbulam) but it still comes, steals the ones we love the most and leaves us in ruins.

We grieve this day not because we are weak or lack faith but it is a price we pay for love.

The sweet memories of your lovely smile and cheerfulness will always be with me and my hubby who calls you on your birthday because you share the same birthday with him.

Laa na Udo!
Posted by LIZZY ILODIUBA on March 22, 2021
Nne as we fondly call each other, it feels so unreal writing this tribute. You were an amazing soul, a friend turned sister, you loved selflessly. Your positive attitude to live was second to none.Thank you for the beautiful years we shared together, the memories will linger. You stood by me through thick and thin, always cheering me and all those around you. I know you are in a better place where nothing hurts. Rest in peace my dearest.
Posted by Chiamaka Amaefunah on March 22, 2021
Ngozi nne m, so we didn't get to conclude on our Lagos reunion plans. Na was oo! We are all devastated by your demise, but we will always remember the fond memories we shared. Ohalete, as I called you, jeh ke oma.
Posted by Onyinye Elukeme on March 22, 2021
I vividly remember my reaction on hearing the news of your death. I was stupefied, shocked, confused, angry and a little betrayed. I know we’ll all die someday but not this way, not at the peak of our success. You were a pillar of strength to me, a beacon of hope. Your smile and super happy nature kept me going. I can’t count the number of times you encouraged me when I’m about to throw in the towel, or the times you made my fight and troubles yours. I am who I am today and attained the height I am today all because of you. In you I saw a big sister, a confidante and a fellow party buster.
I miss you tremendously, I miss your constant gist, movie recommendations, admiration of handsome actors, food recommendations and every other topic worth discussing.
Dear NG, I know your kind and happy soul has earned you a beautiful place in heaven, I need you to know that you’re forever and always in my heart, till we meet again.

Jee nke oma.
Posted by Chidinma Agwu on March 22, 2021
Hmmmmm, Chai, onwu eme aru. How and why is the question i keep asking. Friendship of over 30yrs turned sisters. I came to lagos about 16years ago as a JJC and was stranded. You, only you gave me a roof over my head. I was treated like family. You have stood by me through thick and thin. My last conversation with you was on a friday, as we were planning a weekend hook up the next weekend only for death to snatch you away on sunday.

My happiness in all these is you are resting. Though gone, you will forever be in my heart. Say me well to my mum, if there is a functional kitchen there i trust she will feed you well. I love you and forever. La n'udo.

Hmmm...we all are casualties of the death of our dear Ngozi. She indeed left am indelible mark in our hearts. Indeed she shall be fondly remembered. Let her soul rest in perfect peace. Naa nke oma
Posted by Agbalugo Chukwuemeka on March 22, 2021
There are no words to explain how shocking & heartbreaking the news of your death is. You always had a smile for everyone, always ready to make jokes and you were the queen of football banter. I’m sorry that you had to leave so soon but I am also confident that you’re resting with God. Rest In Peace Sister Ngozi, I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to meet and experience you in this lifetime. Until we meet again, Chukwuemeka Obi Jnr
Posted by Oluchi Ezeogu on March 22, 2021
Hmmm... Honestly, I do not know where to begin from. Olybabe as you fondly call me and hail me. You were simply an amazing cousin, 'good time' person, gist creator and all the fun activities packed in one! You know how to make a dull moment come to live. A cynosure!

I will definitely miss you Ngozi, definitely.

Keep resting in the bosom of our Lord till we meet to part no more.

Ngozi m,

I write this with a broken heart. My Ace, My Sister, My Bestie. My beautiful diva, inside and out. My gist partner. I met you in UNN over 2 decades ago, we became roommates and just clicked then our friendship turned into sisterhood. Whenever I faced challenges, you were in my corner lifting me up and supporting me without any judgement. Through all the ups and downs of life, the good times and the sad, from university days to our older years your friendship never wavered. You always cheered me on during my accomplishments and told me the truth whenever I messed up. Enyi ka nwanne, nkea etipiala m obi. There's a saying that God only takes the best.Our friendship is forever. Although you're away physically, You're always in my heart. Ngozi m, laa n'udo. I will always love you.

Dear Ngozi, This is hard but I know that GOD loves you much more than we all do. You are now singing along with the angels, past the pearly gates, walking the streets of gold. I will miss your cheerful self and the passion you brought into conversations. Rest on dear. May the LORD be with your family and all who loved you in the Name of JESUS. Amen.
Posted by Gashau Mangga on March 22, 2021
We last met several years ago when I visited your office, didn't know it would be our last meeting. Well what can I say? Good bye.

But me, Onyi and the kids will celebrate your life. Thank you for confirming to me that you are fine. I take comfort in that, the angels are with you. Go well our darling. Rest in the lord.

I am still in denial, I don’t want to believe this and at the same time I can’t question God. Sis Ngozi was there for me, from my first day in university. You took me under your wings and looked out for me like the big sister I never had. I remember your laughter, beautiful smile and vibrant personality.......
There is so much I could say but the words are just too heavy to pen down.
Rest on with the angels

The Exotica

The beautiful Ngozi

The vibrant friend

The exotic one

The life of the party!!!

Rest In Peace with God

The one who called everyone Tozaquin” yet was the most exciting of us all
The warm laugh... the ever ready smile
The highly animated girl

My own dear EXOTICA

I constantly watched you in amazement when we worked together how you would sing along to music, and laugh out loud at jokes., and call out to colleagues walking far down the hallway and blow kisses their way... How they would break into laughter and shake their heads in amazement......So much love and excitement always surrounded you

For all the advice, and the little chats, the long phone calls, the parties attended together, and all our memorable birthdays...
For the long hours spent at your parents dinning table from Ogba, to Ikoyi, to Lekki Phase 1.
Oh my friend I will miss you so much.

I will miss ridding in the back seat going places with you and Ifeanyi all day long. And the warmth and comfort that a hot meal would be waiting in your parents house when we return.

Rest In Peace my dear friend
Rest In Peace with God

I am comforted by the words of the Bible that says” The souls of the just are in the hands of the Lord”

Rest In Peace Ngozi, you will be dearly missed.

Hmmm, Ngozi dear I have found it very hard to give a tribute to you. I had to summon the courage to do so today. I remember our NYSC days we served together is same set and same Organization at Amazing Grace Plaza. Oh that your beautiful smile and when we talk about football Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea. Oh dear your vibrant spirit we will miss you greatly however I take solace in the fact that we will meet to part no more. I pray God gives your Husband and entire family the fortitude to bear this loss in Jesus name. Amen. Adieu my dear friend.

To My Zizi.

Shared by Ify Obianwu on March 22, 2021
There are simply no words to capture what you meant to me or convey the full weight of my grief over your passing. When I met you over fifteen years ago I knew at once, that "you na correct Pekin" and I know many men have a wonderful wife but no one has ever had a better one than I.

Ngozi you were simply amazing – beautiful, witty, highly intelligent, quirky, stubborn and always immense fun to be with. I am grateful for every minute we had together.

We shared a friendship, a bond that no one else can understand and together we tore down barriers of creed and culture, and at once turned all of it into love and laughter and fights. You always said family mattered and true in your unassuming way, made everything around you beautiful.

As cliché as it may sound, Ngozi, you were my “Fine Girl". My happiest years were those spent with you. You gave me the experience of being clearly understood, supported and completely and utterly loved. You were my number one fan, blowing my trumpet. When I was worried, you said it would be ok. When I wasn’t sure what to do, you figured it out. And even there on my sickbed when I neared my wit's end, you would hold my hand and reassure me that everything would be okay.

I remember fondly those hours spent on skype calls, the joy of welcoming you at the airport when you came home. I shall never forget the dance, the laughter, and the plans. I miss your presence, your companionship, the notification on my phone of a new ping from you, the joy of watching Manchester United play…your love.

You see, love is both cruel and uplifting. We are dead without it and yet made so much more vulnerable to pain for experiencing it. However if the day I walked down that aisle with you someone had told me that this would happen, I would still have walked down that aisle.

The beautiful flowers you have planted in my memory will be treasured for the rest of my lifetime.

Alas, my love or wits could not save you. You fought long and hard though. You did not want to die. I did not want to let go either. You were confident this would end in praise. But the creator thought your work here was done and decided to call you to Himself, to swell the number of the Saints triumphant. 

I am consoled however by the fact that we’ve buried only your body. Your spirit, your beautiful soul, your uncommon ability to calm the storm is still with us. You live on in the stories those who knew you are sharing how you touched their lives, in the memories of our families who you touched most closely. Things will never be the same for us, yes, but we all have been made better because you were in our lives.

 “My grief journey has no destination. I will not ‘get over it.’ The understanding that I don’t have to be done is liberating. I will mourn this death for the rest of my life.

But I will not stay drained by grief. I assure you that I will be strong for you and together (families), we shall make you proud.

With all my heart,
Your husband ...
