The Story

Erin wo, ajanaku sun bi oke..
(Gen 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it, He rested from all His work, which God had created and made.)
In all my years and travels, I have never met a man who loved God and his children as much as you did Dad. You lived an exemplary life, always choosing the path of peace no matter the circumstances. Not just because you were my dad. Those that met you have spoken of you uprightness and moral wealth in a nation bereft of such.
You sought God daily and like David, took delight in the word of God. You shared this ministry with many that came in contact with you, never for personal glory or financial gain.
You battled with cancer for 17 years and died at an old age. Through it all, you maintained your faith. On reflection, it takes the mercy and grace of God to live that long with a disease that has taken the younger and stronger, in the twinkle of an eye.
Words alone are not enough to express my gratitude for all the sacrifices you made for us. You denied yourself so many pleasures, just so we would not go without. If I have one regret, it is that I couldn't do more for you before you departed. I take succour in the human confidence that you are at the right side of our Lord Jesus. If ever there was anyone deserving of that position, you, Adeyemo deserves that spot.
Sir. Prof. Rev Adeyemo A Aderinto (KJW), prince of Owu, omo alade, omo ta refon, omo egbeji owu, thank you for the honour of being your son. May God give me the strength of your character and the grace to walk the path of honour and dignity that you have laid ahead of me.
Sun re o, Omo’ba Adeyemo Akanbi.

-Adeniyi Aderinto (1st Son of Adeyemo)

An extraordinary husband and best friend. Tribute to my darling husband and the love of my life…Yemo Aderinto. How can I forget our first meeting in Ejigbo in 959 when I visited my uncle at the Teachers Training College? You proposed informally, we all laughed not knowing we would be married ten (10) years later and I would sign my father’s name for the last time. You were such a sweet soul. Humble and blessed with a teachable heart. Your type is very very rare and I would never trade you for another man. You were not just an ideal husband to me, but you were also a loving, caring father, a brother and a friend. Who else could have tolerated, endured and accepted me the way I am? By the special grace of God you gave me identity. For the first 18 years of our marriage, we went on two weeks honeymoon every year. You gave me free hand to choose the place and the time. I can go on and on about your generosity. What about the children? You were the best father they could ever have in the whole world. They will speak for themselves. Since the day you gave your life to Christ you never looked back. You served your saviour with your whole being. Nothing was too much for you to give to God. God honoured his word and spared your life, gave you a testimony of cheating cancer for seventeen (17) years. You were a fighter. But now, that battle is over and you have joined the church triumphant and you are in the bosom of our Lord Jesus whom you loved dearly, intensely and served passionately. Sleep on my sweet love till we meet to part no more. - Lady A B Aderinto (Wife)
