When I walked into that room on that fateful day after the firs stage of my interview at Akin Olawore& Co, you exuded such calmness and gracefullnes, I wanted to start work immediately. You made the session so easy, I post all nervousness in the first 30 seconds. You asked questions I would rather you didn't ask yet I answered honestly. And on the way out I asked if my honesty will cause me a chance at that job and you gave me your word. "Edith if you are one of the best, you will get the job, I promise" you did keep your word and I am one of the lucky few to have learned under your leadership. You are a perfectionist with a difference, a professional with charisma, you out value before profit. You believed in me and helped me fly, you taught me valuation like I was in a classroom. Thank you AO for the opportunity. Your legacy will live on. It's hard now to say RIP, but it is what it is. Again thank you sir.

" My Wonderful Baba Oko sir, " as I usually called you. I could not believe my hears when my husband called me from Abuja that I should go to your residence immediately, that he heard you passed on early hours of Wednesday 5th June 2019 morning. On getting to your residence, it was confirmed to me, but I could not believe it. Hoping it was a bad dream.
Your friendship with my husband brought our two families together. You always provide solutions to all situations. You are professionally and academically sound. All the times we had travelled together outside the country for professional and International conference programmes, you were outstanding in your contributions.
I commiserate with your immediate family, my Sister Mrs Elizabeth Olawore, Omofola, Dotun and Ibukun. I also commiserate with all of us close to you, members of NIESV, RICS, AFRES and NBCC where you are currently serving as the President, to mention a few.
I must say it will be very difficult to get a replacement for you, the versatile homosapien ESV Akin Olawore. Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord till we meet at the resurrection morning my wonderful Baba Oko. ESV (Mrs) Olayinka Patunola-Ajayi FNIVS, RSV, FRICS mni.

Lotanna Basil Okoye posted on 10-06-2019I was shocked on hearing about the death of Esv Akinola Kayode Olawore.

Dr. B. J. Patunola-Ajayi posted on 10-06-2019Akins Bobo, when the Lagos State Branch Chairman of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV) broke the news of your death to me on phone far away in Abuja, I lost my balance. You were my friend of over forty years; the best of all friends. During our undergraduate years, as your classmate and roommate in the University of Ife, (now OAU), you were exceptionally intelligent and brilliant. You always got prepared for examinations two weeks ahead. Akin, you were the President of EMSA while I was the Education Committee Chairman and we organised seminars for all students in the Department. We attended the first National Conference of NIESV together at the University of Ibadan venue in 1983, few months to our final examination. We both did our NYSC in Lagos and worked in Lagos. You usually came to my house to find out if there were any of our classmates that were yet unemployed. This became our duty and we assisted some of them.
Akin, you established Realtor Institute where I was a lecturer from 1997 to 2001. The Institute was preparing candidates for NIESV Professional examinations, many surveyors today passed through the School. You were more than a friend; you were my brother, confidant, encourager and regular trainer of my staff in J Ajayi Patunola & Co. At the beginning of my tenure as the 22nd President of NIESV, you met with my Management team to fashion out the agenda for the two years and it was all action packed. You belonged to various professional bodies nationally and Internationally and served in many of them as the President, Director, Chairman, Coordinator among others. Akin, you are more than a hundred persons to me, and many like me. Akin, it is one of the most difficult thing to say, but let me say good night until we meet at the resurrection morning when we shall all be with Jesus.

Even yesterday night, I still missed you dearly.

OLUSOLA ENITAN posted on 10-06-2019Dear AO,
I have come to understand the deep profundity of your brief but very successful life. The life we live is only a very short reflection or imagery of the blessed life that is in the hereafter. Painful as your exit was for me, I never expected that it would hit me this bad though, considering the fact that I have always viewed your philosophy as too moderate for an Afro-Centric human environment experience, it has always been my belief that you belong to an era in which righteousness is not just the law but a lifestyle . But YES , you are an angel in passage, transiting through this interplanetary geography , nothing seemingly touched you to the extreme, you were always ready to give a second chance, second thought or even a rebirth! You were almost eternally patient on issues that would get me so worked up I wondered if you were connected to another experiential system. The little time we always have either in texts , chats or work-life or phone calls have had tremendous impact on my life, work and world view, though am still a WIP, its seemingly changing my dusk worldview. Safe passage AO, You're welcome to visit when you can!
May the eternal GOD of all flesh grant your soul eternal peace
ESV BOLA OLAWUYI posted on 10-06-2019AO,

ESV Adekunle Gbenga Awolaja posted on 10-06-2019*EXIT OF MY MENTOR, TEACHER, SENIOR NOBLE COLLEAGUE, SENIOR BROTHER, SENIOR SPECIAL ADVISER & CONFIDANT – ESV. AKINOLA OLAWORE, FNIVS, FRICS, PPIRES, PPAfRES, Member Board of Trustee NIESV, Chairman AfRES Nigeria Board of Trustees, President NBCC etc.*
I’m just short of words to describe the passing away of this great icon and legend.
I got to know this special human being in 1989 as Branch Manager, Diya Fatimilehin & Co., Ikeja and later when he was NIESV Honorary National Secretary, I was fortunate to be interviewed in his panel both for election as Associate and Registered Membership with ESVARBON.
I was further fortunate to serve under him as the Publicity Secretary of the Very Branch (2003 – 2005), when he was the Chairman and since then we shared a bond, in the profession and selfless service to humanity.
He made me to supervise his Firm’s valuation of Plant & Equipment during the privatization programme amongst others and when he made forays into the African Real Estate Society (AfRES) Turf in 2007, he made me his main ally to reach out to the Ghana Institution of Surveyors and in 2008, the West Africa Chapter of AfRES was birthed hence attendance at the 8th AfRES Annual Conference, Midrand, Gauteng, South Africa, where a contingent of 64 members came from Nigeria alone. He became the President, AfRES in 2009 when Nigeria hosted Executive Director, AfRES and later President, International Real Estate Society (IRES) in 2015. We travelled together to attend all AfRES’ Annual Conference since 2008 as well as without missing any ERES and ARES Conference.
I missed his calls last Monday, 3rd June, 2018 as a result of my being in a meeting and thus called back by 7:30pm and we analysed all our forthcoming engagements up to September 2019 including the KASU – AfRES Education Seminar (June 17 – 19), ERES Conference in France (July 3 – 6), ESVARBON/IVSC/RICS Joint Training on Nigeria Valuation Standards ‘Green Book’ (July 22 -24), AfRES Arusha Conference etc. He also briefed me on his leading a trade delegation of NBCC by next week and thus promised to continue our chatting after the Eid Fitr holiday i.e. Thursday, but alas that wasn’t to be as my dear mentor, legend and icon passed on in a swimming pool incident in his house on Wednesday 5th June, 2019.
Your Soul is free now and I am sure that Now you will be able to see the bright yellow sun, the fragrant flowers, the swaying trees, and the rolling blue sea. I will never forget you and I will always do my best to live up to your expectations. I promise to keep on fighting the good fight.
You’ll surely be missed the great one, the legend, my mentor, my teacher……

OJO MATTHEW KAYODE posted on 10-06-2019ADIEU AKIN KAYODE OLAWORE,
Silver and Gold looks glitter,
Flower appears florish in the garden,
The lamp went deem too early,
The currious hand of death acted faster that expected
Years of men in this sinful world looks unending when all things are falling into place,
When the unexpected happens, the long thinking years becomes so short and meaningless,
At Lagos conference your reign attain more glamour but not known to anyone that THE SUN WILL SOON SET AND THE MOON WILL SUDDENLY GO INTO HIDDEN WITHOUT COMPLETING THE ASSIGNMENT.
Your death is one RUDE SHOCK I have never experience in my life.
A man of valour,
An undisputable example of leadership,
A warm hearted man to fault,
It is very painful that the vacuum your death has created will take much time to be fill up.
I besieged NIESV FAMILY, ESVARBON HOME, BUILDING INDUSTRY IN NIGERIA AND THE FAMILY YOU LEFT BEHIND TO TAKE SOLACE IN THE LORD JESUS.
It PLEASES GOD TO GIVE AND TO TAKE AT HIS LEISURE WITHOUT ANYONE TO ASK, WHY?
It is my trust in God that we shall meet on the resurrection day at the feet if JESUS CHRIST.

DR. IROHAM Chukwuemeka Osmond posted on 10-06-2019Several times when I spoke to him I had asked why he never picked a lecturing job. He was indeed a teacher and someone I respected for his humility and intelligence. The profession has lost a quintessential practitioner. Rest in peace ESV. Akin Olawore.
ESV. PATRICK OGUNJOBI posted on 10-06-2019He is the bridge between academic and practice as he encouraged many through his coaching class to qualify as a register surveyor.

Esv Bukola Akintona posted on 10-06-2019Late Esv Akin Olawore was one of the surveyors I had great admiration and respect for and counted it a privilege
to be under his tutelage while preparing for my professional exams over a decade ago. He was indeed a gentleman and his death is a great loss to our noble institution.
I perceive that he indeed emptied himself while here o. earth no matter how shortlived it may seem,impacting in lives and contritibuting towards meaningful developments whereever he served. We bid him farewell as he takes his eternal rest in the bosom of his creator
Oguchukwu Cyril Chijioke posted on 10-06-2019It's saddened my heart that you left when am just about to savoury the depth of your wealth of knowledge and experience and when the institution needs to join rank in combating our common enemy (COREN) .But the good thing notwithstanding you left an indelible mark on the sand of time.

AIGBEKAEN DAVIS OSAS posted on 11-06-2019It was a hard, shocking and sad news to hear of your untimely demise. I wished it was not true. Your sincere, calm and humble manners was always disarming.

So much has been said about Esv Akinola Olawore, but the quintessential built environment professional is gone. He has left behind quite enormous wonderful footprints on the sand of time.
He has played his part and I am convinced he played the part so creditably well. His contributions to NIESV and humanity cannot be forgotten in a long time to come! I wish he is posthumously inducted into the NIESV Hall of Fame!
May God Almighty grant him eternal rest. Amen.
Bravo and Good night, my respected senior colleague.

He was one of the best professional Estate Surveyor and Valuer ever produced by the Institutions. He was intellectually very sound and always ready to give his best.

I sincerely express my condolence to your family

NAJEEB ADEYEMI posted on 11-06-2019I commiserate with the entire NIESV family on the passing away of Esv. Akin Olawoore, members of staff of his firm and most especially, the entire Olawoore family. He was a perfect gentleman and nobleman, versatile and highly intelligent. One of the finest Estate Surveyors & Valuers in Nigeria and the West African sub region.
His loss is a colossal one to us and humanity at large. His departure, no doubt, marks the end of an era of the Estate Surveying and Valuation profession in Nigeria.
This news is stale but still remains a shocker. May God fortify the bereaved. I join others to pay tributes and condolences at this quiet moment. Rest on AO sir!
OLOPADE Temitope posted on 11-06-2019AO as we fondly call him, he's a pantagruelian loaded with wealth of resources in real estate. Working with you was eye opening and a life time investment. I never liked professional practice not until I started working with you. One peculiar thing about him is that he just sees things from a better perspective. He's active, intelligent, hardworking and very scupolous. We were working together on Intellectual Property Valuation before his demise. You've laid a very good foundation for me and I'll continue in that to the betterment of the profession which was what you always wanted. Rest on Edwin AO
Oyedokun Eunice Omowumi posted on 11-06-2019I have learnt the principles of the profession and business not from a book but from an encyclopedia that walks and talks - my boss. The value you have added to my career with your inspirational guidance is actually priceless. Goodnight AO
OLUBUNMI OGUNDIYA (KADUNA BRANCH CHAIRMAN) posted on 11-06-2019From the time of my first encounter with ESV Akin Olawore in his old office at Ikeja in 1992 to my last encounter with him on 11th May 2019 at the last Council meeting in Abuja, he has always displayed a great sense of professionalism and uprightness. His wealth of experience and intellectual prowess is unparalleled. His contributions to issues are usually unique and significant.
The testimony of people about him after his demise speaks volume, simply because he lived and an exemplary life that touched many.
No doubt his death is a one death too many to many to our institution, the built industry and to humanity at large.
We take solace the fact that God knows best and has permitted this to happen at a time like this.
Sleep AO, as you were fondly called, until we meet to part no more at the feet of Jesus.
Adieu to a great surveyor of our time
Bille Sotonye posted on 11-06-2019THANK YOU FOR POURING YOURSELF IN KNOWLEDGE.
I never had one on one contact with you but whenever you talked, I admire you with hope of taking the baton from people like you in the real estate Industry.
Thank you for pouring out yourself in knowledge. You have impacted NIESV greatly. We will miss you here on earth.
Sleep on sir! Indeed we miss you.

The visitation of death is usually an occasion for grief and sorrow. It is even more so when the deceased happens to be our Noble Senior Colleague who has contributed immensely to the propagation of our profession.
His death has plunged us into grief.
However, as we mourn the loss of this great man, we draw strength and consolation from the fact that his life was a pillar of inspiration and role model to many who knew him.
As we join his family, numerous friends, Noble Colleagues and admirers to mourn this great loss, it is our earnest prayers that the good Lord would grant all of us and other loved ones he left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. We take solace in the Holy Scriptures - “precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints”.

Adieu AKINOLA EDWIN KAYODE OLAWORE, FNIVS,
ESV 'Jide ONASILE posted on 12-06-2019My boss, my admirer, my role model. It is still like a dream that you have to be with the Lord. You were the one that gave me first opportunity to work with your noble firm, Akkn Olawore & Co, at Lagos Island before I joined the Ikeja Brach.
Is it the tutelage I got whilst working with you that I would not cherish or the exposure you gave me opportunity to have under you. You imparted great knowledge to me in a humble and easy way and I will be forever grateful.
It would be hard to see a professional per excellence that will be able to put their feet in the shoes you just left, your good works and contributions to our great Institution, your church and to the people around you will continue to speak for you.
We pray that the Lord will repose your soul to rest eternally and grant your family and loved ones the fortitude to bear your untimely departure.
Continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord sir

Indeed, this is a very great loss, not only to our noble Institution, but to this nation and the entire world. ESV. Akin Olawore is a man of many parts and he is always available and very ready to take up any assignment.
This is to remind everyone of us that we are here in this world for just sometime; what will people say about us when we are gone?
I'm indeed consoled by the good comments of everyone about this great icon. Not one person spoke ill of him.
The article I wrote on June 1, 2019 titled: The Purpose of Life: Why Are We Here?' is very relevant here - https://bit.ly/2Ickzpa

Raymond Ogunshakin posted on 15-06-2019Mr. Akin Olawore, was a gentle and humble man, he didn't only set a standard but became an institution.
He is vast and disciplined, a fine man and great family man, he's a different personalities to different people when it come to progress, he's beyond beacon of hope but pillar of hope. Always punctual, patience, smiling, unassuming, very knowledgeable, always ready to help, a great listener, untiring to get good things done....A fatherly figure, A daddy, A comedian to make light what anyone counted heavy, a brother always, a friend at all times, a boss in setting positive directions, a lines crosser, a barriers breaker, not pathfinder but paths maker, a man of the people.
Akin Edwin Olawore lives on because his works are here testifying that a great man walks on this sand of time. We love him from this side of the world but his husband Lord Jesus Christ loved him more on the other side of the world.
Rest on sir !
