Dele,
Your demise at a young age was most shocking to me. You made a positive impact and impression on anyone you came across while you were here.
I remember with fond memories of our osu days, parties we went together and pictures 4 of us myself, yourself, late Segun Odubela and Femi Durojaiye took.
My prayer is that May your soul continue to rest in the bossom of your maker and may he shower his countenance on the family you left behind.
Rest on well my brother.

We are grateful for the angel Oladele was. We are grateful that he took Tomiwa our dear classmate under his wings, mentored her in more ways than many. Oladele ensured Tomiwa successfully completed her education and always pointed Tomiwa to the Lord he faithfully served.

We extol the ways Oladele loved Tomiwa, exemplifying the love of Christ for His Church. We are exceedingly glad and grateful that the good Lord gave one of us one of His finest.

My friend, turned brother, Oladele. We met in 1985 at Molusi Hall in OSU and later found out we have been admitted for the same course. We clicked instantly and that friendship lasted over 30 years. Presido, you were that knowledgeable friend in every sphere of life. Politics, History, Religion, you have details at the back of your hands. You were loyal to the end and such trait is very rare. Oladele Solanke, you are the only "Akarigbo" that we know & recognised to date. You are 1 out of the 2 people that can always read my mind anytime, know what I'm to. Your passing on to glory has left a vacuum that cannot be filled. From OSU to Law School, 1004 to Herbert Macaulay, those memories are still fresh in my mind. I asked so.many questions but I cannot questioned God, the God you served faithfully to the end. Mummy still always commend you for all what you did, those visits every 1st of January every year to pray for her and bless her with gifts. I will never forget you, my Friend turned Brother. May God Almighty continue to rest you in His Bossom & give us all the fortitude to bear the loss. My friend turned Brother, I know you will always look back to see how our Wife & Children you.left behind are doing. Sun re o Akarigbo, my Presido

In loving memory of my buddie Dele Solanke who departed this sinful world on 28 April 2020. Dele was a man of honour and uncommon integrity whose core values centered on God, family, professionalism and humanity. Indeed a dependable friend any day and time. Dele was an intellectual giant in his own right always pushing the frontiers of knowledge with his penetrating insights. He was a bubbling and irrepressible soul till the end despite his ailment which he bore with equanimity, grace and faith in the living God. I will continue to cherish the moments we shared as friends and brothers. Didun didun ni iranti olododo. May the almighty God continually strengthen Princess Tomiwa to forge ahead in realizing Dele’s God inspired vision of greatness for Oreoluwa and Nifemi. Sleep well, my dear friend, till the resurrection day. Adieu.

Rest in peace bro Dele.

I remember the time that he visited London and spent a week with me. He definitely was a knowledgeable and intelligent man. A man who was also respected by his peers.

Above all he loved God and was also a responsible and loving father and husband.

May God say well done.

Sleep on brother until we meet again on resurrection morning when we will depart no more.

May God bless, protect and provide for the families you left behind.

Adieu

Daddy, as we called you from the days at Covenant Mandate Foundation of which I am a beneficiary. Hearing about your demise was a heavy shock but I was consoled by mummy's reassuring words knowing you're in Christ's Kingdom. You were a mentor with godly principles, I looked forward to the prayer sessions you led each Saturday morning before we began our classes. You taught us with your life experiences just like father to children, telling us not to make same mistakes you made but emulate the good ones. You were a selfless and exemplary leader. I wish we could have you more here but God knows best. Rest on sir.

Continue to rest in the bossom of your saviour.

Dear Dele, your departure was so sudden and painful, who are we to ask God why. My family will always remember you for your prayers and counselling. Rest in perfect peace my brother, friend and pastor.
Posted by victoria Alonge on April 7, 2021
Dear Uncle Dele, your wonderful spirit will live on through the children, and they will always know how much you loved them. You tried with all your heart to stay for them, but God called you, and you had to go.

During your illness, I know that there were things that kept you going, hope in God, my dearest friend Tomiwa and the children otherwise to face another day would have been tough, and I can't imagine how many days you must have had like that.

Now you can rest in peace knowing you did all that you could and that Tomiwa and the children will be fine.

Uncle as I used to call you, my mentor , my HOD. To say you will be missed is an understatement. You taught me how to give my seed to the right quarter and be blessed. You showed me the right part to fellowshiping with God. You were a mini God in God's image, you loved God and you served God without reservations. Rest in the bosom of the Lord
