When scholars like Dr Mrs Akintan die, people are forced to ask question if life really deserves all our struggles, hard work, sacrifice, good deeds and all the impacts we made even when it was not convenient for us. Mama Akintan was an Amazon and a great woman whose impacts transcended human expectations.Adieu to my adviser and academic encourager.

BIG MUMMY, words are ineffable to describe the feelings of your unavailability in the terrestrial world. You continue to live in my memory as a woman of many awesome parts. Though you spent 1.6% of your lifetime and 3% of your career with me yet you gave 100% of your love, care, personality, motivation and your good heart. I will forever miss and remember you for all you have done. Thanks for being REAL. The legacy of your Realness lives on in my heart. Goodnight Big Mummy.

Accepting the reality of your crossing to the other side of the divide is indeed a tough position to take even after confirming and hearing from valid sources; saying its like a dream will be an understatement but seeing you committed to mother earth dashed a miracle of hearing you are back hale and healthy. Our last time together during the marathon M.A. defence was memorable and will remain evergreen as it wrapped those beautiful moments of 3yrs with you. Though we had limited time together, your courage, resilience, and sagacity are values that I'll forever cherish. Rest on Mummy HOD (as I do call you)

On behalf of the Management Board, Parents,Staff and Pupils of Olabisi Onabanjo University Staff School, we bitterly mourn your untimely exit. This is no doubt another great loss to the University and its environs.
Dr (Mrs) Oloruntosin Adeoti Akintan remained am epitome of discipline, hard work,selfless service and a philanthropist.
It's painful that you have to join the triumphant saints at a time when your Godly counsel, selfless services, your motherly care, your generosity among others is still much needed.
May your soul rest in peace.

This no good news at all. It is surprising, am dumbfounded, it is critically serious, ah! ah!! ah!!! "O death, where is your power? O death, where are your pains? The pain of death is sin; and the power of sin is the law: But praise be to God who gives us strength to overcome through our Lord Jesus Christ.  For this cause, my dear brothers, be strong in purpose and unmoved, ever giving yourselves to the work of the Lord, because you are certain that your work is not without effect in the Lord.(1Cor.15:5558). Though, you lived for a very Short time, but your indelible mark will not be raised in our memory. It is well.

You used to call us 10 & 11 like other staff and faculty in the Department until recently that you started calling us "Ẹbi mi". We never knew you would leave us so soon. You were full of actions, dramatisation and agility. You were full of life, transparency and truthfulness. Your death was a rude shock. You will be greatly missed. May the Holy Spirit comfort your family and OOU. Good night ma!

So very sad and shocking to learn about your demise, Aunty Tosin as I call you and you will fondly called me "our first lady". You were this very strong, energetic, goal getter kind of a person. Nothing seems to be too difficult for you to do. Over the years, whenever I passed by you going from one point to the other, I marvelled at your boundless energy and grace in getting things done.
You have certainly completed your race, though we weren't expecting your exit at this time. By your exit, I am once again reminded that it is not how long, but how well. You have faithfully done your bit and your rewards await you.
Sleep on, dearest sister till we meet to part no more.
Posted by Kehinde Obasola on June 20, 2021
Dear Tosin, you did not tell me you were leaving so soon. Saw you on Thursday when you were discharged from the hospital beaming with smile as you would normally do. I did not know that would be the last time I would ever set my eyes on you on this side of the divide. You have gone with all the hopes and aspirations of becoming a Professor and how we are going to build a formidable team in the Department. But Tosin why did you succumb so easily to death. You have gone with that ambience, with your gallant strides and smiles. You were an epitome of simplicity and sagacity.
Death could no longer hold you captive. You wrote your name on the sand of time. You played your part and you played it well.

My dear Tosin, the who Department mourns your exit. The Faculty mourns your departure. The University is disconfited. National Association for the Study of Religions mourn your exit. You were a bridge builder, hard working and diligent.
May your soul continue to rest in the bossom of your maker to we meet to part no more.

Adieu Tosin

As a young academic staff in one of the campuses, I couldn't believe your level of humility anytime I interacted with you. You were pleasant, friendly and easy going. Your departure is a shock I am yet to get over with despite not having a personal relationship with you- a weight only time will heal. I can only pray that God will ease the burden of your loved ones, comfort your surviving relatives and the greater community of friends and colleagues of the OOU community.

Mummy Akintan, thousand words cannot express how to describe your love for humanities. Valiant heart, fighting the cause of the less privilege even when people offend you; you will never stop to show them love. Mummy Tomisin, I can never forget when you called me to meet you at ago market -thinking I'm just to accompany you but I was surprised when you buy same produce for me as if you gave birth to me. we went to your house and you still cook for me . What a great humility and love you showed. She will often say "Owolabi hope you are praying for me". May the Lord bless your children.

Day by day, it is becoming so real that this thing called life is vanity in its entirety. Why are we here? Why do we strive to become anything?
#Ecclesiastes 2:15-18 KJV
Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity. [16] For there is no remembrance of the wise more than of the fool for ever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten. And how dieth the wise man ? as the fool. [17] Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit. [18] Yea, I hated all my labour which I had taken under the sun: because I should leave it unto the man that shall be after me.

The sudden news of your transition has left us with so much grief. Hitherto, it is hard to believe. We are awed and confused at the same time. Our eyes are dripping of hot tears and our hearts heavy with sorrow. We are speechless and left with unanswered questions too numerous. What happened? How did it happen? Did we receive any signals? Why would you choose to leave us helpless at this time???? But we knew you to be strong. Yes, very strong. Your masculine posture and steps reminded of your strength and determination to live, even against all odds. How could it be your desire to quit now? You weren't a coward, we know. You who had fought countless battles before with scepters of victory brought. And now calmly you surrendered. Your gentle surrenderdness was but a courageous bow to the beautiful beckons of your Maker, Who has a better place reserved for you in His glory. That is why, as people taught by faith, we become comforted..., albeit we can't forget you in a hurry. We shall continue to cherish and remember in figment, your love, smiles, humility, friendliness, accessibility and intellectual ability. Adieu, dear sister. See you bye and bye.

Quite Sad that you have to leave now when the ovation is just gathering momentum Dr. Mrs. Adeoti Akintan!
You were special and wonderful in many ways with our varying experiences with you, our teacher.
Undoubtedly, you were known to always stand for uprightness and justice, and so daring you were but always with sincere motives.
It is just painful that you have to leave now.
Always hard to bear this magnitude of loss for a husband who loved you like life, children who always look forward to your caring love and motherliness, friends who cherish you, colleagues who were endeared to you, students who found role model and mentor in you and others who loved you so passionately for various acts of kindness.

May the LORD comfort each of us in Jesus name.

It is with sorry and grief the news came to me through Oluwatosinloba's husband, Mr Akintan into JUSREL e.mailbox. When I read through, I asked myself, what a missing academic icon! A missing ambassador of OOU, especially department of religious studies, is it true OOU community, Ogun State ASUU lost Dr. Mrs O. Akintan? Which of the two is correct? Missing or lost? No! No one is correct for enviable ambassador of Akintan family but what appropriate word to describe a woman that those in her contact could not grasp much from her wealth of experiences, who was described by her Dean as a versatile, reliable, active, dedicative, truthful, treasure of ethics and custodian of cultural and religious moralities.
Oluwatosin was found through our search for assessors of papers and she demonstrated her academic talent and mentoring style of younger colleagues. This is recent, barely a month ago, how somebody now telling us, Dr. Oluwatosin has transcended. Colleagues we have no options but to accept the truth that Dr. Oluwatosinloba did play her role in academic, Church, her immediate and extended families, University community and her hand has indeed touched beyond OOU, her impart in knowledge cannot be undermine at all.
Missing Dr. Mrs Oluwatosin Akintan results in the final departure of this sinful world. We accept the judgment of our Creator, He loves her more than we do. From God we all came, no doubt, to Him is our return at a destined time, date, hour and second.
May the good LORD takeover the nurturing of Akintan and Oluwatosin families, give them all fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. It is incomprehensible for human intellect why her life has come to an end now when the society needs her most. Dr. Mrs Oluwatosin Akintan rest in your Lord forever.
Profusely, I will continue to appreciate the faithful heart of her husband, Mr. Akintan. May our Lord console him and members of the family. Incomplete is this EPITHET when I fail to sympathize with the Dean, Prof Olubomehin. May the Lord take away such calamities from him. I remain grateful to him for paving ways for us to reach the family in good time. Remain blessed.

Tosin I knew you in Afribank Ijebu-Igbo as one of our customers but I personally had a relationship with you when you took me and my children in to live with you in 1993. When I did not know where and who to turn to, When I was deserted by everyone I knew, including my husband. But God sent you as an angel to comfort me and my kids.
You’re a woman of large heart, you showed me compassion as a single mother of four children. My burdens and problems becomes yours. I can never ever forget what you did. Living with you made me to know your own struggles in terms of education, settlement, marriage, giving birth etc. Your life was full of struggles but you overcame all your challenges because God was with you.

Drawing from the Words of the Preacher:

One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again (Ecclesiastes 1:4-7)

The metaphor of the rising and falling of the sun depicts the ephemerality of human existence on this planet. The orbital diving of the wind replicates the circuit of being in the terrestrial sphere. As the earth abides forever, so also human deeds whether good or bad live after them. It is inferred from the above that human beings return to their abode as rivers run into the sea; good deeds benefit humanity, while bad deeds ignite a psychological trauma.
Thus, life’s ephemeral consciousness is a big lesson calling on beings to imminently contribute their good quota to the sustenance of peaceful (co)existence (in the humanities). And, by extension, to be alert for an unsolicited visit of the ONE behind the breath.
Dr Mrs Tosin Akintan, Acting Head of Departmnt of Religious Studies, OOU, has left remarkable memoirs in Faculty of Arts particularly and the great Olabisi Onabanjo University as a community generally: All are recalling her deeds. Among others virtues attributed to Dr Mrs Akintan is her energetic and dedication to the smoothness of the Faculty and wellness of the University. Indeed, I recalled a scene of huge traffic right at the Main Gate (OOU) during the last University Examination. The traffic was so heavy that everyone was struggling to make their way to avoid being late for the examinations. she descended into the scene with acrobatic traffic warding strategies and became the messiah of a fast-vehicle-through-passage. Both the lecturers, students and others were saved from the awful traffic challenge not only on that day but also the subsequent ones, as a result of her interventions. There are lessons to be learnt, spoken and written from Dr Mrs Tosin Akintan’s agility and dedications to our great Faculty of Arts and the University Community.
May the Almighty God give the entire family, the Faculty and the entire University community the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss in the name of Jesus. Amen.

You were more than a supervisor to me

Shared by Florence Ariyo on September 22, 2022
She was my project supervisor. She treated me like her own daughter. She had interest in my project topic and made sure she followed me up till the last full stop. She would sit me down in her office, turn on the AC and tell me to think and write more. The last days i spent with her were memorable and i am glad i was able to share them with her. Is it the pounded yam she fed me with or the numerous snacks. She would even share her breakfast with me I miss her sincerely and it pains me i wasn't able to appreciate her well before death took her away. Rest on Dr Mrs Akintan. You are forever loved.

You're indeed a Mentor

I remembered as a parent in OOUSS, your term as the Vice Chairman was completed and you told me Funmi "I was going to appoint you as the next Vice Chairman of PTA Executive". Alas, because of your good heart and deed among the teachers and parents you were able to pull through. Your indelible legacy will forever be seen at the Mini Campus site of OOU Staff School. You singlehandedly built the play pen. You were such a noble woman with heart of gold. So humble that you were able to bond with the young and the old. Your memory will forever be cherished. Your spirit of giving was highly commendable ma.
Aunty Tosin, a fe ko lo, it pains us that you were receiving tributes while dead. May the perpetual light of God guide you on your mortal journey. Rest on ma. May God Almighty repay your children with loving kindness. Adieu

Aunty Tosin... Always Gentle and Calm

Whao, such a shocking news. I received the news of your demise with shock. We still spoke on the 6th of March 2021. With your gentle voice and calm spirit you prayed for me.

In all thing the Bible admonishes us to be Thankful. We thank God for your life and we are grateful to God. You have been a huge blessing to our Family and you impacted our lives positively with your words, gentleness, kindness and Love. We pray that your Soul rest in the bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Till we meet again to path no more...
