Nigerians from all walks of life last week Wednesday attested to the sterling and selfless lifestyle of the late Managing Director of Lekki Worldwide Investment Limited, Tajudeen Ajibola Babatunde Disu at the 8th Day Fidau prayers held for him at Landmark Event Centre, Lagos.

The President of F Club, Gbolagade Adebisi flagged off the tributes when he said words were inadequate to capture the contributions of the deceased to humanity and submitted that his memories shall never fail as he made people the centre of his activities.

Also speaking, the representative of the Old Boys Association of his alma mater, Ahmadiyya College, Lagos, Kole Funsho recounted his days in the secondary school, especially his cheerful and kind disposition, adding “we should celebrate his life because he lived a complete life. He left footprints, legacies and achievements. He was a very bold person, forthright and outspoken. His can-do attitude was exemplary. He will be sorely missed“.

In his own tribute, a staff of Lekki Worldwide Investment, Olumide Asaju described the late Tajudeen Disu as a thorough bred professional who was very passionate about the development of Lagos State, concluding that “he would not hesitate to jump on a bike to meet deadline. He was very lively and fun loving. His legacies will live on!”

Another member of staff of the Lekki Worldwide Investment, Karima Okunola submitted, “he was so many things to so many people and he knew how to make people comfortable. He was generous with his time, knowledge and everything. He always implored us to be good for we are nothing but birds of passage“.

The tribute of his bosom friend, Biodun Osinowo was tear jerking as he said, “Ah Bola! How can I read your tribute? Your sudden death has left me with indescribable pain. Twenty four hours were surely not enough for him as he lived life to the hilt. Things had to happen everywhere you were. We will miss you“.

The daughter of the deceased, Tolu, amidst tears, recalled the wonderful times she had with her dad and lamented “who will wear your hats? Who will call me and after I greet you say, “Disu here!”…If only the world knows the person they have lost“. Pledging to make her late father proud, she assured, “Oh my sweet Daddy, I won’t bring any cowboys to the house. I’m sure I will not bring the wrong person home“.

The representative of the Disu family, Ayi Bamgbola said, “a good shepherd has gone. We are missing you but Allah loves you most. With him, everything is, ‘do not worry, it will be done’. You were a wonderful man and uncle“.

Delivering a sermon earlier, the Founder and Chief Missioner, Jawadu-Ilah Islamic Society of Nigeria, Imam Ahmad Olore advised Nigerians to always be mindful of death, the end of all men, by doing good at all times. He urged those who are over sixty years old to write their wills in preparation for the necessary end of all men, adding that children were the legacies Late Tajudeen Disu left behind.

Thanking guests for honouring the invitation and rounding off the tributes, the first child of the deceased, Jameel Disu in an emotion laden voice reiterated that words could never capture the bonds between himself and his late dad, submitting “I thank you for showing me what it means to be a good man, a good husband, a good father. I love you Dad“.

Guests were treated to a pictorial presentation of the life and times of the deceased both digitally and physically while sublime musical renditions by In His Image, an acapella group which sang, the decased’s favourite song, “Take Me Home Country Roads” and Chee, the Voice, whose powerful rendition of “See you again“, wrapped up the Fidau Prayers.

    May his soul rest in perfect peace …Amin

    The perpetrators of his death must be brought to book!! Cause I don’t know why blood must be shed with regards to land matters in Nigeria. Very sad

    Come I to speak in TAB Disu’s funeral.
    He was my brother. He was your brother.
    Heaven is comfort,
    but it’s still not for living.

    He has achieved success who has lived well,
    laughed often, and loved much;
    Who has gained the respect of intelligent men
    and the love of little children;
    Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
    Who has left the world better than he found it;
    Who has looked for the best in others
    and given the best he had;

    Whose life was an inspiration.
    Whose memory is a benediction.

    A bouquet of beautiful memories,
    Sprayed with a million tears.
    Wishing God could have spared you,
    If just for a few more years.

    It does not take a special day,
    For us to think of you.
    Each prayer we say,
    Is offered up to you.

    We cannot bring the old days back,
    When we were all together,
    Our family chain is broken now,
    But memories live forever.

    Bye bye brothermi
