Deearest Olije, this was you people's song for years on each Valentine's eve, after you both found the song 13 years ago.

Little did Sabastine know that it was going to happen in reality.

We will love you always.

Remember us always, Sweetheart.

Sweetheart, yesterday six whole months just passed like days. Half a year gone. Without your physical dwelling with us.
Speedy as these 6 months are, it's been a long difficult journey.

Time does different things to different people.
To some it heals, to some it hurts.
To some it stands still, to some it speeds past

To us, time doesn't take you farther away from us but it hasn't brought you back to us.

We continue to pray for your beautiful soul.

We will always love and miss you.

Mama♥️♥️♥️♥️
I miss you sooooo much. 6 months already . These 6 months haven’t been easy without hearing your voice, seeing a text from you, video chatting you or even an assignment to carry out. I miss you soooooo much Mama. I’m certain you’re resting peacefully. Surely, we’ll meet in the Lord’s bosom.

I love how you keep coming to mind. It shows you are here with me. I have found it difficult to say something here but it’s months now and this seems to be the reality.

I know you are guiding and interceding for me from above.

Thank you for being ever amazing and a big sister. I love you

Because it is said that still waters run deep,
We opened the tap of our hearts for our rivers of tears to flow endlessly. Yet, the flowing waters that is our tears ran deep.

5 months ago you woke up healthy and started your day on a beautiful note.
Then bang!
Everything changed. Our lives changed.

Not a single day in these 5 months have we forgotten you. Not a moment has it felt easier or lighter.

You are in our hearts and minds every blessed moment.

Sweetheart, we will always love you. We miss you.

The deepness of our grief .
Not only still waters run deep.

Our angel, our candle on God's alter. You flame will never go out.

Remember us!

Dear Ojile,
Met you briefly during my posting as a House officer in Paediatrics and later in O &G but you left a lasting impression on me.
Your kindheartedness, friendly nature and understanding as a registrar then was what we would talk about amongst ourselves as house officers.
This indeed is a very painful loss.
Continue to rest in peace and may God comfort your immediate and extended family in Jesus name
Posted by Samuel Stephen Wakdok on June 13, 2021
Sweetheart, it's been one whole month since your internment. One whole month since we last saw your beautiful face as you lay peacefully.

It's been a long month of weeks, days, minutes and seconds. But it's been a longer 8 weeks since you left us.

It's been tough, rough and painful. It wasn't meant to be this way. No, not like this. No one saw it coming, no one ever thought it will be this way. Just like that? Just like that!

While we mourn, we still believe in life everlasting. Keep resting dearest in the Father's house, in your room prepared by His son.

You shall be remembered for all times!

6 weeks today
6 painful weeks
6 hurtful weeks
6 hurting weeks

Dearest Oli,
It hurts so bad
Who would have ever thought or imagined?

You didn't have to leave Sweetheart. Not so soon. Not so sudden. Not without a goodbye, we don't say goodbye I know. So, so long our dear angel.

6 Saturdays ago. Our world spinned. Our world changed. You left and left us broken. And no, it's not a film trick..

6 weeks today
6 painful weeks
6 hurtful weeks
6 hurting weeks.

You are a great person. You will always be great.

Perpetual light shine upon you darling.

Forever in my heart Olije!!! Your smile! Your warmth and liveliness! My darling I only gathered the strength to tell your babies that Aunty now lives in Heaven! Let your wings spread on us especially on Sabastine and your family! Let it bring calmness and peace and cover them from the sun! I miss you!
Posted by Tina Anya on May 18, 2021
Today was difficult Olije! There were moments when I felt I couldn't breathe because of the heaviness I felt in my heart! I could only imagine what your family was going through. I couldn't carry myself to get the coldstone icecream you loved so much, which I meant to give your children in your honour. Your absence hurts Olije! Your husband is broken! Your family is in agony! But this too shall pass!
Happy birthday my dear! Keep smiling with the angels for all eternity! You were, and still are, deeply loved.
Posted by Becky Ohiaeri on May 18, 2021
Today was the day we agreed I’d come to you! We planned it two month prior! So today I spent it praying for those you loved and cared for! Sabastine, your family and friends!!!!Today the 18th May, I reflect on the human race as a whole!!! It’s essence! The pursuit! The emptiness and perpetual dissatisfaction outside of Christ! Indeed to live is Christ and to die is gain! You have gained! You will not be forgotten! Every year on Katlynns birthday I will remember you went on a long sleep!!! Sleep on! for all of our pursuit will end in this sleep!

Dearest Oli, I never forget your birthday just as you never forget mine. Yesterday I did not receive the lovely birthday message I usually get from you and today I could not send you one either and it hurts but I will send my message here. Happy birthday dear, I know you are resting in God's arms. I love you. 
Posted by Samuel Stephen Wakdok on May 18, 2021
Our dearest Olije, today's your earthly birthday darling, your first birthday away from this earth.

Very few people are special like you with special dates.
Born on the day Pope St. John Paul was born, 18th May.
You left us one month one day to your 41st birthday.
Both Pope John Paul II and you left this world in April.
You were interned on the Feast of our Lady of Fatima 13th of May which also happened to be the feast of Ascension of our Lord in 2021.

You left and left us broken.
But you shall be remembered for all times.
We will never forget you Honey.

Happy birthday in heaven our angel.
We love you and will always miss you.

May perpetual light continue to shine upon you always.

My dearest one and only sister, Dr Olije Helen Alexandria Ega Wakdok
I have been lost for words on what to say since your passing from this world. Today would have been your 41st birthday where I would have called you to wish you a 'Happy Birthday' but I can't anymore. However, I commemorated your birthday with you in a sacred way through a "Special Memorial Thanksgiving Mass in honour of your life and your passing from this world. Each time we celebrate the Holy Eucharist at Mass we are joined in union with all the angels and the saints. I believe you are now part of that heavenly union in JESUS Name. Our Heavenly Father allowed you to be taken from us to Rest in our Eternal Home. I believe you are safe in GOD's Hands and I will see you someday in GOD's Divine timing.
For now, May GOD grant you Eternal rest and let perpetual light shine upon you and may your beautiful and gentle soul rest in peace Amen.

Tribute to my darling wife, best friend, colleague, motivation, and angel!

My sweetest Oli, it is said that God is too kind to be cruel, but why did fate deal me such a cruel blow? How am I supposed to cope without you my soul mate?

My dearest Oli, it is said that God is too deep to explain himself, but how am I to know that my life would suddenly change on that afternoon of Saturday the 17th of April 2021 with your sudden exit?

My loveliest Oli, it is said that God is too wise to make a mistake, but what is this nightmare I have not woken up from? Who can tell me the meaning of all these?

There are no words in any language to describe you, who you are and what you mean to me. God sent you, one of his angels down to earth to take care of me. There are also no words in any language to explain my devastation since you left me, left us. I am desolate, I am lost, I am crushed, and my world is spinning. I really wished you stayed longer but like magic you are gone.

We shared our lives, our world, our hopes, our plans, our fears, our faith, our career, our joy, and our pains. Our lives were completely intertwined. We shared our greatest gift which is love. You took my heart and made it yours, but you left me suddenly without an opportunity for goodbye, leaving me broken and shattered. Now I am left without joy but only pains. I am only left with memories, your memories, our memories. Only memories all the same.

You were smart, brilliant, and intellectually stimulating. I was in awe of you each day I wake up. We could engage at that level from sunrise to sunset. You were a loving and thorough clinician who had empathy for your patients. You were a deep thinker, a passionate researcher and a fierce advocate for Universal Health Coverage and a promising world-class academic. All your colleagues and professorial advisory team at the London School of Economics echoed this at every opportunity. I could not stop speaking highly of you to every colleague of mine at Oxford, University College London and Edinburgh. They all virtually feel they have known you for years.

I know you are seated up there in heaven and you can see how broken I am. We had our own world, we built our own world, we lived for us and by us in our own world. Ours was not a perfect world, but it was perfect for the two imperfect people that we are. With you I was complete. In you I was complete. But in a matter of seconds, you evaporated from my life without a warning or any sign.

We are meant to grow old together, living, walking, holding hands, sleeping, eating, reading, laughing, traveling, loving, and doing all the things we always do. Now, you will forever remain young in my heart and mind. You will never grow older than the last time I saw you.

I close my eyes hoping this was some dream that I can wake up from. I stare at the door thinking you will walk in saying you took longer than you planned outdoor. But this is some tragic reality. My sad reality and as the days roll by my reality hits harder. My heart aches and the feeling of it ripping apart will not go away.

More than 8 years ago on the 20th of October 2012, during our wedding reception, I recited this poem to you.

Soul mate

I had eyes
Which could not see.

I had ears
Which could not hear

I had nostrils
Which could not smell.

I had lungs
Which could not breath

I had brains
Which could not think

I had hands
Which could not touch.

I had legs
Which could not walk.

I had a heart
Which could not beat

Then you came my way Oli

I can see
I can hear
I can smell
I can breathe
I can think
I can touch
I can walk
I can feel
But above all, now I can love.

Then suddenly you left. You left me. Today I stand alone without you my all, without you my love, without you, my wife; dejected, confused, and helpless. You left me stranded in this world. I stand bare while the arrows of pains pierce my heart, flesh, and bones because the most beautiful soul on earth, the most loving being under the firmament, my most cherished of God’s creation left me without saying goodbye. Without me saying sorry or forgive me. We were still talking, and you just left.

You were always praying, for me, for you, for us. You prayed for all our plans and hopes. You prayed on your knees, on your feet and your back. Your rosaries and bibles were at every corner of homes. You prayed at day and night, yet God did not keep you for me? You of all people know how empty I am now. I look back at the over 15 years of knowing and loving you, I look back at over the 8 years of being married to you. All gone? Gone like the wind or with the wind? When will you come back to me?

My darling Oli come back please.

Please come back to me Honey!

May you live forever in God’s glory with all the holy angels and saints till we meet to part no more. The memory of the Just shall never be forgotten.

You shall be remembered for always!

Your broken husband,
Sabastine.

Sweetheart

Today makes it exactly one month since you left us. One month ago by this time 8.46am, you were bubbling with life and full of hope for greater life ahead. You were excited and optimistic.

You are such a special person who came into our lives and touched us in ways we can never describe, then left us with pains we can never explain.

Yesterday, little Sanches said he wasn't going to your house because he misses Auntie Olije. We all miss you. This is one very difficult situation. It's a hail of pains.

Your memory will be remembered forever!

We will always love you.

Pray for us mortals.

It's taken a while for this to sink in. The news had been simply unbelievable. But yes, a rare gem has gone to be with the Lord..

Very few people are like you Olije. Intelligent, insightful, loving, kind, helpful, a comforter and such an encourager. Thanks for the great times we had Nigeria-trotting and preparing for and passing exams. Thank you for your boldness to stand for truth and justice - the world needs more like you. Thanks for being there for me when I lost my Mum. Thanks for so many things we can't write about. You sure packed a lot of love into so few years. The world has lost a precious soul - those of us who know you and the ones who now will not have that privilege.
Adieu, till we meet again.

The Lord comfort Sebastian and all your family and friends like only He can.
Posted by Patricia Ameh-Elaigwu on May 13, 2021
Its really disheartening to hear of your demise. Your death has left a big vacuum in the heart of your loved ones. I have known you virtually all through childhhood. The Zaria connect, the family friend connect and the UniJos connect. All I imagine is your warm smile and simplicity.
May God console the loved ones you departed from and grant you eternal rest in His blossom. Olije your death is a very rude shock. Sleep on Dr.Journey well with the Angels until the resurrection morning.
Posted by Goodnews Mary on May 13, 2021
My heart was broken when I was informed about you leaving this earth... I wish God gave us chance to pray for your recovery...

There are very few people that can effect lifes passionately in this world, and you are one of them.... "You will say as a woman you have to multi-tax". A woman can always do more, Whoever is connected to you, you always have them at heart....

"Mama" (as I will always refer to her)....You will never be FORGOTTEN, You will ALWAYS be love in my heart....
Keep sleeping in the Lord until we meet and depart no more.

It's so sad and shocking hearing about your demise. This hit me so bad. You loved me dearly and only wanted the best for me. U did everything u could to see that I was happy and successful. Thank you for the love and care u showed me. I'll miss your long calls, words of encouragement and concern especially about my masters. U will forever be in my heart.
I promise to make u proud and ensure that the dreams we had for me comes to pass by God's grace.
I pray God forgives all your earthly transgressions, grants you a merciful Judgement and receive your soul in Heaven.
Rest in peace dear Aunty Helen till we meet to part no more.

I didn't see myself writing this ma'am but.....you were an angel beautiful in and out, greatly admired with your magnetic smile... I can still hear how happy your voice sounds whenever you called you never failed to ask after our wellbeing after every conversation same thing the last time you called which was on thursday before your death... We can't ask God why but pls we can at least ask Him to give you the most cosy place in heaven warmer than the joy and love you radiated. You are greatly loved, cherished and will be missed by all the lives you touched.

Hmm, Death has really pierced an infallible hole in my heart. lnfact hearing the news of your demise was a shocker that I have never encountered in my whole life.You have been more then a mother to me,a role model and an idol. How can I say a few words that would express all the years of love you have showered on me, But the truth still remains that we can never question God, because everything he does is perfect.My world best Aunty may your joyous soul find peace with the Lord.      Amen

Sweetheart
Seeing you today, was heart wrenching.
Welcome back to your land of birth all the same.


God is too deep to be explain himself..but He should have pitied us and left you for us longer.
He is Omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent
He owes my brother, he owes your parents, he owes my parents. He owes us. He owes the people who depend on you. He owes the world who miss her impact. He owes the children whose Auntie and role model he called to himself.

I do not doubt God.
I do not question my faith in God.
I pray for my brother's faith, strength and mind.
I pray for our families, your friends and colleagues.

May God who gave us you and who took you from us fill your void himself in our lives. Amen.

You came, you saw and God conquered!

Blessed be God.
Posted by Tina Anya on May 9, 2021
This is so hard! You gave no warning! There were no signs! It all still feels like a bad dream! It all still feels so unreal!

But I will not mourn you like one without hope. I know that He who loves you more than anyone else took you away at the time that was His best, and I thank Him through my pain! Thank you Lord, for the blessing of having this beautiful person in my life, even though for a short while!

Thank you for Olije's life, love, friendship, smiles, tears, pain, prayers, and all that I was privileged to share with her. Thank you for all she taught me about giving oneself, loving family, being principled, being strong, being different, self love, taking breaks, enjoying life, loving others in words and actions, loving You despite what life throws, and so much more! Thank you Lord!

My darling friend, sister, prayer partner, rest! You have run your race! Rest dear! Victory is ours in Christ Jesus, even in death!

Love you always!

Everyday since the news! I have sat down and read our chats! Looked through our pictures! Oh Olije! My no nonsense Olije! I am convinced that you enjoyed your life to the fullest! Your anthem “please there’s NO TIME for rubbish”.

You lived! You lived and loved! You enjoyed this life! You vibrated positivity and strength! I didn’t think I’d make it to write this but I heard you in my spirit saying you are fine! You said “you of all people should know I am fine”!!!

My journey here has changed by your passing! We planned life together! We moved cities! We hoped together! Now my angel stay warm in the real place of peace and continues praise! Bow with the angle and feast with them!! One day we will be feasting, praising, bowing and laughing together! Until then keep Shinning brighter than a diamond out angel!

SISTERS ARE ANGELS WHO LIFT US UP WHEN OUR WINGS FORGET HOW TO FLY .


I don't know why you had to go so soon but I believe God has a great plan. I find it difficult to accept that my sister, my best friend is gone, but you taught me to be strong. 

You gave me a true definition of friendship and made this friendship thing so easy, you were only one call away and always there to safe the day. I will always remember that special smile, that warm embrace you always give me,you were the big sister I never had, the best & greatest amongst friends so hard to find, harder to leave & impossible to forget, my encourager, my confidant, my strength, your kindness was out of this world. To everyone you met you left a print of joy, love, hope.To me you will forever remain my "priceless & irreplaceable big sister.

I sit here and ponder how very much I would like to talk with you today. There were so many plans we made and each time I think of you I know I will miss you.

I know how much you love me and how much I love you, For every time I think of you, you are right here deep within my heart.

You had so much to live for, you had so much to do, it still seems impossible that God was taking you, and though your life on earth is past, in Heaven it starts new.

You will live for eternity just as God has promised you.

And though you have walked through Heaven's gate we are never far apart.

I will always remember you my precious sister.

The news of your death was very difficult and unbelievable to behold.
You came, shone like the star you were, vibrant, energetic, awesome and a-must-like personality ; you definitely touched lives my dear sister.
I wish you stayed much longer than you did, but your time came for you to be with the Most High God.
My wife and I wept when the sad news got to us, because you were so dear to us.
Your memory reigns in our home, and we'll forever remember you.

My dear cousin sister Olije, the last time I saw you was 1991 about 30 years ago and you were very young and promising then, I have heard of your kindness and beauty inside of you but I never had the chance to feel this but I believe in the voices of majority. I can tell exactly what your siblings are feeling right now because I have been there too. My consolation is that we have a God over all our thought, decisions and life and he knows better. He didn't ask our permission to give you to us as a daughter, grand daughter sister, niece, cousin and wife. so he's never ever going to ask or take permission from us when he's going to take you away. I wish there's a death date like we also celebrate birthday so we can bide our loved ones goodbye. My consolation is in Isaiah 57:1-2. The righteous perishes, And no man takes it to heart; Merciful men are taken away, While no one considers That the righteous is taken away from evil. He shall enter into peace; They shall rest in their beds, Each one walking in his uprightness. Am sure you must have seen my beloved bestie brother Edwin Ogo Ella (AKA. Eddie Murphy) pls tell him that I still love and miss him every day. Like it is written, my dear sister olije, enter into your peace and rest till we meet to part no more.

Dear Olije, it's shocking that I am writing a tribute at your passing. What a loss! I am still processing it.
My youngest sister, Ene truly treasured your love for her & the children. You lit everywhere you went with your warmth, kindness & sunshine.
Indeed you came, you saw, and you conquered in your short but very impactful life. You will be sorely missed.
Rest in the bosom of the Lord.

You touched so many lives, you were an Angel who lived among us, a gift from God who shared with us your love.
I will always remember you as the ever smiling, gentle and elegant Queen!! I had always viewed you through the eyes of your darling Onyowo, oh how she loved her Oli she is devastated, we all are!!
May the lights lead you home.
Forever in our hearts

I stalled writing anything here because I was hoping it's all a bad dream. I was first numb in shock, then I got angry and sad at same time. Why did you have to leave now? I just want to see that beautiful smile on that beautiful face,hear that infectious giggle one last time, I just want to hug you tight and tell you how very special a sister and friend you are to me, how much I love you....Its painful remembering and it makes it all more unbearable how: You were the first colleague I actually met when I first came to Juth.How You welcomed me to your place while I waited for my roommate to come open the door to my building, you made me feel so at home, it felt like we had known each other for years before then. When I returned from my Masters Course wondering what I could do with such a certificate in Nigeria, You gave me the contact of the person and Skinclinic in Abuja that changed my life forever,I am so sure you called him with positive things only to say about me because he welcomed me and made me feel really important (thats just how you are Olije) I remember you even called your brothers friend to help me course through, when I got a job in the ministry. When I wanted to go for a course in Dubai and was confused about Visa application,you calmed me down, gave me an Agents contact and told me not to worry,it would be just fine. Then I got the birthday message in 2020,out of the blues....everyone was down so it seemed there was nothing to celebrate yet, you sent me that birthday message...... its painful that I didnt get to tell you how much I appreciate you, how much I love you in person, it took your departure for me to realize you actually are, an Angel who came to do her bit and left. I am so broken, sad and depressed Olije, there is so much I want to say ....so much I should have said and done while you were here. My only consolation now is this: You are at Peace and are with the Angels. I believe you are looking down and smiling, seeing all the lives you have touched and how much your departure is missed. Rest on my Angel,my dearest sister, till we meet again.

Dear Olije,

It's still shocking for me to come to terms with reality.
Your angelic smile reminds me of the goodness &   fairness you stood for.

You have gone ahead of us to be with the LORD, we are spared for a reason, May we achieve our purpose before our time Expires... Amen.

Indeed there is Hope for us all and we will meet you again... Amen and Amen.
Rest in perfect peace my dear friend.

I received with mixed feelings the news of your passage to eternal glory at a time you r impact on lives is most needed.
The call of death comes at God's own timing and we can not question the most high. My prayer is that the Lord console and comfort your family and parents at this moment of grief. May your soul rest in the peace of the Lord. - Rev prof Mbeh Eteng

Sweetheart

It's very difficult

How are you doing today?

Every one has been devastated.

You surely are an angel who touched so many lives and influenced many more.

The time was too short. This would have been a surprise if it wasn't such a rude shock.

My God.

Deearest Olije, this was you people's song for years on each Valentine's eve, after you both found the song 13 years ago.

Little did Sabastine know that it was going to happen in reality.

We will love you always.

Remember us always, Sweetheart.

Sweetheart, yesterday six whole months just passed like days. Half a year gone. Without your physical dwelling with us.
Speedy as these 6 months are, it's been a long difficult journey.

Time does different things to different people.
To some it heals, to some it hurts.
To some it stands still, to some it speeds past

To us, time doesn't take you farther away from us but it hasn't brought you back to us.

We continue to pray for your beautiful soul.

We will always love and miss you.

I miss you sooooo much. 6 months already . These 6 months haven’t been easy without hearing your voice, seeing a text from you, video chatting you or even an assignment to carry out. I miss you soooooo much Mama. I’m certain you’re resting peacefully. Surely, we’ll meet in the Lord’s bosom.

Nigerian couple who won Chevening Scholarships steals show at parting reception

Nigerian couple who won Chevening Scholarships steals show at parting reception
Last night was indeed a charming one for a couple who won the highly competitive Chevening Scholarships to study in the United Kingdom.

Sabastine and Helen Wakdok, both qualified physicians in Abuja, were the focus of attention at a ceremony that was held in honour of this year’s recipients of the scholarships.

“We knew people would be fascinated by our luck,” Mr. Wakdok told PREMIUM TIMES at the event which held at the residence of the UK Ambassador to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright.

The couple said although they had become professionals in the public health sector for years, obtaining further education had always been at the top of their priorities.

“We’ve always wished we could go for our masters, but financial constraint had made it impossible until this opportunity came,” Mrs. Wakdok said.

They said their four years of living together as a couple contributed immensely towards crafting their essays for application.

“We aimed to flow with each other while submitting our application,” Mrs. Wakdok added. “We achieved just that.”

The Wakdoks said they hope to return with new knowledge that would help them mitigate some of the numerous public health challenges facing Nigeria.

The husband enrolled for public policy studies at the University College London; while the wife elected health policy, planning and financing at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

The Chevening is a UK government global scholarships programme offering access to Master’s degree courses in universities across the UK for individuals with ambition and leadership potential.

The one-year programme had produced thousands of master’s degree holders since it was launched in 1983 as part of Britain’s foreign policy efforts.

At least 43 people were selected from a pool of over 6,000 applicants in Nigeria alone this year — down 10 from the 53 persons who were selected out of 4,000 applicants last year.


Mr. Arkwright implored about a dozen new Chevening scholars who showed up for their certificates to deploy every skill they learn in service to their country.

“The Chevening encourages students to learn from others and to come back to their home countries to contribute to their home economy and develop their countries with the knowledge gotten from the UK educational system,” Mr. Arkwright said.

Some of the 43 new recipients received their certificates from UK Deputy High Commissioner, Laure Beaufils, at a similar ceremony held in Lagos last Thursday.

Last night’s event was attended by several Chevening alumni, some of whom narrated their experiences to bolster the preparation of the new scholars.
