Ooh’ Dafe Akpedeye, SAN My Big Brother- Tribute by John Aikpokpo-Martins
Some hours ago, I received with shock and pains the news of the death of Dafe Akpedeye, SAN.
I have so much to say, but words just failed me.
In the legal profession, he was the only one who tried to take me along to the top; he gave me my one and only NBA national committee appointment, until I won the last election.
He liked me like a younger brother, not because I did anything for him, but because he just liked me. He watched my back all the time.
The last time he spoke to me was seconds after I won the election to the office of the NBA 1st Vice President in July when he called to congratulate me; a whole Dafe Akpedeye, SAN, the debonair gentleman with so much swag and panache could bare talk and talk audibly! Life indeed is like a flicker of flame.
So much have been lost by your demise my brother sir. You might not have died in ripe old age, but you were a wizened old man with gray hair in many spheres of life. This life is not so much about how long you live, but by how long was your impact on humanity.
May the Almighty God forgive you your trespasses and rest your soul peacefully. My condolences to your beautiful wife and children
