I came to enroll WAEC in Salas 1996 and found they had three teacher's per subject, Mr Salas was a hardworking man who wanted alot of people to succeed in the exam, it was evident in the quality of Teachers, his ability to put together great talent as teachers is second to none. Rest Baba you have raised stars.

......And the sunset

If I could turn back hand of clock, motioned sun and moon, I would request for more years for you in life.
He taketh and giveth, used your demise to confuse us, the creature.
I vividly remembered your word of encouragement for me; product of hardship, "oh! Omolewa, my carpenter's son, don't worry go in, it is well!"
I pray that God should allow your children to reap bountifully what you sowed.
"......... BELIEVE ME YOURS SINCERELY SALAS"

Thank you for continually inspiring me to do my best. You help me strive for goals. I found guidance, friendship discipline and love, everything in one person. And that person was you. Rest in Peace, Salas Okyere

Mr Salas,
Continue to rest in the bosom of your creator. We will always remember your labour of love and passion for education. You stirred up the latent potential in many of us, in uncommon ways.
Some of your common expressions that still echoes in my mind include:
"Except you do WAEC teeennn times, you will not listen" !!!
"Believe me to be yours sincerely, SALAS" !!!
We indeed believed you. You promised to make champions out of us and you did. Rest well our icon !!!

Mr Salas is a man never to be forgotten.

The impact he had on my life and that of many others is indescribable. He was a man of vision. He was hardworking, passionate and committed. He did everything to ensure we all succeeded especially in our academics. One of the best decisions my parents made was to enrol me at SUSSA - I am so grateful for my time in the school. I struggled with Maths and all my science subjects until I came to SUSSA; the school changed my outlook on those subjects!!!! Mr Salas built so much confidence in us so much that most of us wrote GCSE and SSCE in SS2.
Thank you Mr Salas for all you did for us. I cannot tell my story without talking about you. As you always said "I REMAIN YOURS SINCERELY- SALAS" You will remain in our hearts forever❤.

Salas was an outstanding man that can never be forgotten, he impacted so many people's lives in which myself and and my sister were also part of. He was selfless, kind-hearted, generous, understanding, intelligent, jovial and accommodating. I will say my secondary school days was the most memorable times in the history of my education so far, it added immensely to whom I have become today and I'm sure alot if us that passed through Salas Universal Secondary School Akure (SUSSA) can boldly say thesame.
Rest on Great Teacher
Rest on Rare Gem
Rest on Mr Okyere Emmanuel
You will be greatly missed.

Talking about one of the very BEST private Secondary School in Akure in the 90's, Sala Universal Secondary School can not BUT be mentioned.
A great disciplinarian, genuine TEACHER and a great Hustler. I remember when he was trying to build the structure of that School on water (part of Ala River) very determined human being. He did it, A great legend from Ghana making Akure his bade with determination to make a landmark in a strange land.
Am Proud to be one of your Achievements.
Adieu Salas Emmanuel Okyere

To a great father, a great teacher and a great mentor, who loved every child that was lucky to come across him dearly.

He left his comfort zone to offer the world his ingenuity.

His impactful teaching shaped destinies.

His products now breathe from every part of the globe and his footprints remain ever visible in the sands of time.

I wish I could cast the name SALAS in stone, but I will tell everyone who cares to listen, that I schooled in the time of Salas, the teacher of teachers and a rare gem of his time.

Rest in Peace, dear Mr Salas.

Baba Salas as I fondly called him left his home like biblical Abraham and later became successful too. He impacted life in an extra ordinary way. May your legacy remain abashed.
