Sis Vic...

News of your death shook me to the marrow coz it still feels like a dream. The thought of no more having a taste of your vibrant charisma and beautiful smile is heart breaking. Still remember our last meeting when you came to Abuja and you were like " Babe how far na hope you know you're the next reason to us gathering as a family to celebrate your wedding " and I smiled and said Amen . Now the reverse is the case but who am I to question God? He alone knows.

I've cried out my eyes till my tear gland is dry but I'll be strong just for you.

My solace and fortitude lies in the fact that you're happy and at peace in a Better place.

May your beautiful soul rest in perfect peace...Amen

Adieu Mummy Zee

Vicky I’m so broken to hear of your passing! Why should someone so young and at the peak of her prime leave us this way? Too many unanswered questions but God always knows best.

I can’t forget our road trip to Scotland for Christmas 2011 when I got to meet you for the first time oh the lasting impression that still keeps me thinking “I want to be as proficient in HSE like Victoria”.

You were professional, passionate about the things you put your mind to and that earned you the nickname “Madam safety”.

May the almighty lord continue to console your family and friends you left here on earth and receive you into his bossom.

You’re forever in our hearts!

It's sad that one so young, with so much promise should be cut off so abruptly. I'm saddened but consoled in the fact that she lived a beautiful life.
May her beautiful soul rest in peace.

Very shocked to hear of Victoria’s passing. Sister Victoria, as we fondly called her, was a studious, vivacious and optimistic young lady. I met her while at the University of Glamorgan (now the University of South Wales) and we both served in RCCG Garden of the Lord Parish, Cardiff Wales, working in the Pastor’s Office as respective PA’s to the Parish Pastor & the Pastor’s Wife.
I got to know her as Sister Victoria, smart and outgoing, who had a zeal for God. She was instrumental in coordinating fellowships & group meetings.
The news is indeed shocking to me.
May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace. May God give the family the fortitude and grace for the journey.
Rest in Christ’s bosom, Sister Victoria.

It was with utmost shock and disbelief that I learnt of your passing on. I kept saying “Viki?!? How!! It’s not possible!!!” Then I heard an all too familiar story of how we have lost our loved ones and it broke my heart. Viki, you were a bright, intelligent and beautiful person and I know God has his reasons for taking you away at such a young age. I am deeply saddened but I have my hope and faith in God and know that you are in a better place. Adieu till we meet to part no more. Rest well.

Your brother

Victoria, we are simply devastated by your passing. You were taken long before your time. You were so full of life… so beautiful, smart and confident. I will miss you terribly.

Mfon, you and I are one and I can feel your pain but I can also feel your love for your sister. Your strength will help us both cope with this immense loss.

Mr Oton, Oto, Ndunno, Nseno, Sidibe, Glory and Junior, my heart is with you all.

Zayne, you mommy loves you and will hold you in her heart for eternity.

her Life

Our Victoria

Victoria was a beautiful, vivacious, independent and strong woman with an insatiable zest for life. It was impossible to spend any length of time with Victoria and not have a laugh as she had a fantastic sense of humor. A thoroughly outgoing person, she was the life and soul of the party, was happy to share her opinions and engage in intellectual debate on a broad number of topics where she was verbally as well as cerebrally quick. She was the very embodiment of the phrase – full of life.

Victoria was born 39 years ago. She was the sixth child and fourth girl of Mr. and (late) Mrs. Sunday Whyte Oton of Ikot Oku Ikono, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. Victoria was an adventurous, happy child with a tendency to play good natured pranks on her mother and siblings. At an early age, she demonstrated a strong ability to be vocal in support of her sisters and women in general and she showed an intensely competitive trait with a go-getting attitude.

Victoria started off her education at Army Children Primary School GRA, Phase 2, then moved to St Ann's Nursery & Primary School, Rumuibekwe, both in Port Harcourt. Upon completion of her primary education, she attended the University Demonstration Secondary School, Choba where she obtained her WAEC. Victoria obtained a BSc in Environmental Protection and Resource Management in 2006 from the University of Calabar. With an insatiable desire for continuous learning and development, she moved to the UK where she obtained an MSc in Safety, Health and Environmental Management with merit in 2009 from the University of Glamorgan.

On returning to Nigeria, Victoria methodically started building her career and profile as a thoroughbred Health, Safety & Environmental professional undertaking several roles in Port Harcourt including roles and up to her most recent as HSE Supervisor at Eko Support Services in Lagos. She was so impassioned about all things HSE, a passion which showed in every action she took that she earned the nickname – Madam Safety!

Victoria married Olalekan Akinyemj in 2018 and was blessed with a beloved son, Zayne, in February 2021. Following the delivery of her boy, she experienced many complications which eventually led to her passing on June 13, 2021. Victoria’s was a life full of promise, a life lived to the full, a life of impact. She was one of those people you met in life and never forgot because she left an indelible impression. Even while she fought, all spoke about was Zayne, who will now grow up without the love of a mother. However, Victoria was comforted that her family would be there for her son. 

Loss of a loved one is an incredibly difficult experience and every single one of Victoria’s siblings and her extensive family and friends will struggle with her passing. However, amidst our grieving, we thank God for the privilege of growing up with Victoria and having enjoyed the gift that she was while she lived. We know that her suffering on earth has ended and that she will now be with her dear mom while the rest of the family wait to see both of them on the eternal morning when life will be unending.
