THE EXIT OF A POWER HOUSE

Busayo Obisakin
Posted June 20, 2020 from Nigeria

I met her for the first time at the World Pulse meet up in 2016! A gentle and wonderful soul Full of life. Since then we had bonded as Sisters. Her vision was to have an orphanage and empowerment of young girls and women against sexual and domestic violence. She was able to build the orphanage and many orphans still there right now. She has another office in one of the most terrible slums in Lagos where she has empowered many girls and women. We keep sharing our strength and struggle in the cause of work to rid our country and society of the menace of sexual and domestic violence. Two years ago, we became closer as I invited her to join the team of scaling IMAGINE program in Nigeria. She completed the training and she was waiting to be certified in July when death came suddenly. My dear Sister, you have lived a worthy life even though you went too soon, your legacy shall remain forever.  You fought a great battle as a committed comrade and power house. Death has no power over you because your victory in Christ is certain.

Rest on Comrade!!

Rest on Amazon!!

Rest on wonderful friend!

Rest on Committed and Reliable Sister!

Till we meet to part no more, we will miss you! This world will miss you! Good night Sister Aramide Praise Oikelome!!

Dear Busayo,
I am so sorry that we have lost this sister, sorry fo her family and all who knew her, and sorry for your loss in particular as you became such close sisters. As we collectively mourn Aramide it is soothing to read more about her from you, because of your closeness to her. It is soothing to have her work described by you, and to know that her work is documented and kept safe, for everyone to read and know what she accomplished. We will carry her always in our hearts.
Much love,
Tam

Thank you!

Hello, Busayo,

What a lovely tribute for our dear Aramide.

It must be difficult for you to be the carrier of this heartbreaking news. How wonderful to know your beautiful friendship blossomed from World Pulse. Her passing must be painful for you, dear sister. It has been a time of mourning for all of us , but more to you because of the bonding you had through the years. Hugs, dear Busayo.

No wonder there are a lot of new World Pulse sisters and encouragers from Nigeria. You, sis Aramide and the rest of Changemakers are working hard to introduce World Pulse to them.

We know that Aramide left this world with empowered women and girls to follow her advocacy.

"Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." - John 12:24

We know her death is not futile. Her legacy lives on.

Thank you for honoring Aramide here on World Pulse!

Dear Busayo,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I am equally sad about our dear sister Aramide's sudden very sad demise. You are so true that she was a wonderful friend, a wonderful powerhouse for working so many women and girls those surviving from domestic and sexual violence. I agree with you that her legacy will surely remain and a true tribute for her from our side will be we keep her in our every effort for women's empowerment.
love and hugs , anjana

so so sorry, yes, and I found it so wonderful that you post about another woman, especially after seen all she has done, you just reminded me to not just talk about me, and that it was very selfish of me, to write only about me, thank you for reminding me, it's a lesson
