Full text of AMANO’s tribute:

On behalf of the board of Trustees, Executives, and the entire members of the Alumni of Maritime Academy of Nigeria, Oron (AMANO), I extend our condolences to the family of late Engineer Olu Akinsoji on his demise.

Late Engr. Akinsoji, who was once a Rector of our Alma Mata, the Maritime Academy of Nigeria, Oron was known by most of us as the sage who set the foundation for the great works being witnessed at the Academy today.

He was the Rector who relentlessly charted the pathway for our great institution, leaving an indelible footprint for his successors to expand on. He was a great man who lived a life worth celebrating, having exuded remarkably leadership qualities that majority of us emulated and it gladdens our heart that his light will continue to shine through us, and other lives he impacted.

As we mourn his passing with his family and the entire nation, we are not oblivious of the fact that the legacy of a man is not measured by the number of years he lived, but by the impacts, he made, the love he gave, the lives he touched and the footprints he left behind for others to follow.

Thus, we in AMANO would not just sorrow at this period but also commemorate his memories by reflecting on the lessons he taught, the stories he shared, the laughter, the joy and every other unique but interesting things he did.

Therefore, we proudly release our 21 Gun Salute to bid farewell to an Icon whose life was well spent!!

Adieu our dear Sage!

Emmanuel Maiguwa
