Baba Z. A. Odeleye was a great mentor, charismatic leader and gave all necessary assistance and supports to younger ESVs especially those aspiring elections into the corporate membership (ANIVS) and registration at the Institution and the Board respectively. He was like a father to most of us the young surveyors (regardless of being his staff or not)in the Pacesetter Branch (OYO NIESV), any professional issues/challenges discussed with him were simplified for us.
He really contributed greatly to human capacity and professional development of every member and our noble profession at the Branches, Faculty and National level as well as in the Board.
We had loss a rare gem and doyen in Estate Surveying and Valuation Profession.
I pray that Jehovah God shall accept his soul, forgives his transgressions, grant him eternal and peaceful rest at the best place in the Paradise as his final abode.
Almighty God shall grant the entire family members, friends, loved ones, noble colleagues, the Pacesetter Branch, the Institution and the Board the comfort and fortitutude to bear the irreparable loss.
Rest In Perfect Peace (Pa) ZACHEUS ABIODUN ODELEYE FNIVS, RSV.

Abraham Ayodeji Kayode posted on 06-08-2020It's shocking to hear of your demise just few hours we were all asking ourselves diffently at our corners, why you were not at the branch AGM, which definitely was unusual!
Now, we can only relate with what you stood for in your lifetime. You stood tall among your contemporaries and a worthy example to many of us of upcoming generation. Anyone aspiring for greatness cannot but admire you from afar, but you were very close anyway. Your desire & interest in the next generation growth & development was genuinely crystal clear. Your dissection & presention of issues notably are persuasive, appealing & convincing.
NIESV has lost another icon & a brilliant professional too soon. soon....
May the Lord grant the immediate family, relatives ,friends & NIESV the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss!

AYODELE IBUOYE, FNIVS posted on 06-08-2020*THE MIDNiGHT CANDLE HAS GONE OPAQUE*
Night fall nght fall you are my greatest mortal enemey, why were you ever created, why can't it be day light, day light for ever more. Elder Biodun Odeleye, a colosus in the midst of giants, an amiable personify who is not want for frivolities but for realities. You have gone so soon. If we say we have missed your brilliance, that would be an understatement. Your wisdom, eloquence and rendition of the queens language is a beauty to behold and we can't forget that so soon. If not for anything, I owe you this little bit for your sense of communication, native intelligence and the way you calm down fseemingly intractable challenges in a way that melts all problems away. Your native intelligence is second to none, though, at times we confuse it to mean conpromise or condesending. The last time we spoke was after the NIESV AGM and more than ever before I was convinced that your solution to the immperse was an excellent one. Your drive and commitment as a surveyor is worthy of emulation. Despite your health challenges,you died in active service for your institution, nay your colleagues.
We would refuse to brood over your demise, but celebrate a fulfilled and worthy life.
Missing you, yes for *a ,GIANT* has gone, not to be back again.
*CRY NOT* community of surveyors for an uncommon man is gone.
*ADIEU ELDER BIODUN ODELEYE,*U

Esv Raji Taoheed Adewale posted on 06-08-2020Sad! May God grant him Eternal Rest and console all those he left behind.
OKUNLOLA AFEEZ OLAIDE posted on 06-08-2020So pathetic! What a great loss to NIESV OSUN STATE BRANCH. When I heard about the sad news of the departure of ESV (ELDER) BIODUN ODELEYE, I began to ask myself some questions. What is the measure of a man? Is it the amount of money he has? The possessions he owns and the power he holds? Is it the professional success he’s achieved over the years?
I don’t believe it is any of these things. The true measure of a man is how much love he gives; how selflessly he shares whatever he can to help others; how consistently he lifts up those around him with a kind word, a funny joke, a compliment, a humble ear or the very shoes off his feet.
By this measure, ESV BIODUN ODELEYE was immeasurable.
An erudite result oriented ESV has finally gone. Rather gratitude to Almighty God for the exemplary enviable life he enabled him to demonstrate maritally, socially, professionally and spiritually to admiration of many where he had worked, lived, practiced and worshipped. To God be the glory for this outstanding feat.
May the Lord grant the Family and the Institution the fortitude to bear the gigantic vacuum created by the Home Call of our own Elder Biodun Odeleye. May his gentle soul rest in peace.
Akinola Adepeju Adebambo posted on 06-08-2020Baba Odeleye ! Adieu you were more than Oga to me .
You related like a father to daughter with me .
I became closer to you when you discovered am a Yoruba interpreter, and a JTC Ibadan Manager, an office you occupied long before i was qualified.
ESV Z.O ODELEYE , you were an epitome of integrity, a professional per excellence. You wished all upcoming surveyors well , you wanted our growth , always ready to give your sincere advice and support. No wonder we didnt see you at our AGM.
We will all miss you at OYO NIESV, and the National Body as a whole.
I pray God grants you eternal rest. And give your family the fortitude to bear this loss .
Till Resurrection Morning Good Night Sir .
Akinwale Oluwole posted on 06-08-2020Sir, it's a painful thing writing your tribute at a time that's least expected. How can you enter river without wet and how will touch fire without being burn, yes, how will one relate with you-Elder and NOT derive enough knowledge and benefit, very rare if not impossible! I'm a testimony to this! I met you for the first time in Ibadan and you identified something in my life. This transformed to what I'm in the profession now! I thank you for that day I met you and period I was with you are lovable and memorable. Now, that you've translated to join the saint, we have solace that you met Christ who's now your lamp! May you continue to rest with Him and in Him forever till when we meet without parting again. May the Lord Jesus Christ comfort Mummy, Debola, Ayo and Biodun together with rest of the family and The Institution. Amen. Adieu Elder (ESV) Zaccheaus Abiodun Odeleye

Baba had given so much that we can't wait to have more from his fountain of wisdom, diligence, commitment
and unparallel love for our dear Profession.
Baba was an embodiment of intellectual think tank, who spoke directly to hearts in subtle mood via cleverly and interestingly crafted words that elevates hope for NIESV greatness.
Baba we can't challenge God's will but certainly your exit has left a deep vacuum in NIESV family.
Adieu Daddy - your commitment to attendance of Council meetings, oratory in command of English, tactical approach to solving burning issues and ever cheerful locomotive clap shall remain fresh in my memory. Rest in peace Baba rere.
May Almighty God grant his immediate family, friends and our Institution the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss... Amen!!!!!

ESV DEBOLA ADEYEMO posted on 08-08-2020The news of your demise came as a rude shock and it got me thinking of my contact and journey with you in the last 22 years. I had my first IT experience in your office 1998. You have since being a mentor, Father and Friend. You offered me the first job after graduation before the opening came to go into academics . We have since maintained a father and daughter relationship in the practice of Estate Management. You taught me excellence and structure in practice and office administration. I felt achieved when you printed for me even as an IT student my first set of complimentary cards to work with. You showed me early the importance of accounting in Real Estate Practice.
We had our last communication on the 21st June when I said Happy Father's day and you replied with a prayer.
You are a statement in the Spirit that the Lord Jesus should teach us all to number our days that we may all apply our hearts to wisdom
Rest in Peace Baba Odeleye. You remain my heart always. Thank you for giving to this generation. It was to God you gave. Adieu to a great ESV , Father , Friend and Teacher. You will surely be missed by many.
May your family find the comfort of the Spirit and help in every way in the days and years to come in Jesus Name. Amen!

Dr sani Habibu posted on 08-08-2020Elder Odeleye was a father who never took the younger ones for granted but listened to every comment with clear sense of hhumour and dignity. He never allowed his age nor his wealth or position to form a dichotomy to.every kind of relationship. I am yet to his close comparable within common. I personally loved his emotional balance and tolerance that will forever remain indelible in my mind. I pray for the Lord to grant him eternal rest and strengthen us and his biological family to bear his demise. REST IN PEACE BABA BIODUN. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL SENSE OF RESPECT!!!!

Esv. Omolola Ibijoke Adeyemo posted on 12-08-2020Baba Odeleye was a loving, ever cheerful man. I noticed him first during Oyo State Rating Exercise in 1995 trying to calm down field workers and assured them of good returns. My own father later introduced me to him as an estate surveyor in the making. He had since encouraged me and here I am a fellow of the Institution. Thanks so much. We all in the profession will miss you. Rest on sir in the blossom of God.

K'ato reni bi Baba, it will take a while.
I could not but fell in love with your oratory prowess. Your analytical way of driving home your valid point was one of a kind.
You were a shinning example for us "the young ones"
You have done your bit in the project called "LIFE"
Now, go home and enjoyed your deserved rest.
We loved you, but God loves you more.
