Dude, when the news of your demise reach me this morning, I just waved it aside, calling it, “ a huge joke in high place” but when the reality dawned on me, I couldn’t but marvelled on the essence of life?
Why still contemplating if to write this piece, I remembered that it will be too bad of me if I do not honour you. I can’t but remember the good, bad and ugly times we shared, one that even made people to wonder what brought us together and made us become very close pals, despite our difference in faith. I can vividly remember how our journey to friendship began, I remember meeting you then in our 100 level, one morning as we were trying to tidy up Mallam A.B.Umar’s MCOM 108: African Communication System, our first baptising of fire (assignment), and going through your work and telling you my view on the work and you giving me the mandate by handing over your system to me, to effect the necessary changes.
What else should I say? I can’t forget you doing all my assignments for me when I did not resume school for half of our 2nd semester 200level due to health ground. What more should I say, is it how we plan to write professional examination together? Is it your encouraging words about not giving up despite the hard times?
The world is truly a stage where every mortal would pass through, what truly counts at the end of the day is how you live and spend each day as stated in the Holy Bible (Psalm 90:12). Despite your few days on this plane, your achievements and character speaks volume for you, that is why am comforted.
You left behind your family, colleagues and friends, without a moment to say goodbye. You left with your dreams unfulfilled. Today, the world mourns your exit. I pray for the repose of your soul, rest well dear friend and brother. I will miss you….
