Keep Resting On, Prof.

When it appeared the sky has fallen on my head, you comforted me and showed me an escape route and a light at the end of the tunnel. You worked had to establish Faculty of Engineering. You counselled many, gave them hope and a direction. Your death, like many other mysterious ones sent series of unanswered questions to the owner of the Universe. May God continue to comfort members of your family.

Keep resting on Prof.!!! Adieu.

ONE YEAR REMEMBRANCE OF MY LATE UNCLE
Memorial Picture of Prof. Matthew O. Edoga

I came into this life, you held me in your arms, you kept me safe, so no one could harm, you taught me values, lessons in life I would learn, you taught me to respect. Everyday I think of you, I still can't believe you're gone, you didn't even give me the chance to repay you for everything you've done, It hurts so much, Uncle, I don't know if I will ever get over your passing, the legacies you left behind will live on for decades. I will always do my best to live up to your expectations. I miss you so much my dearest Uncle, the pain does not ease, I pray you are happy and finally at peace.

Keep resting in bosom of thy Lord 

We love you but God loves you most

God plz always console us

Greatest Role Model (Prof. M.O. Edoga)
Memorial Picture of Prof. Matthew O. Edoga

Words are not enough to express the painful vacuum created by your demise.

You were a beacon and an inspirator. You inspired me to see opportunities in learning and mentoring others. Am forever grateful for guiding me from the first day of work at the university.

I saw a father and a leader in you which propelled me to where I am today. You gave my career a deeper meaning. 

Though you are no more but your legacies remain as a guide to all who were closed to you. Missing you is an under-statement but I know we shall one day meet to path no more.
