Eighteen years ago I dreamt of working with our great institution after reading through the profile of Olasubomi Balogun. Today gives me the rare honor to celebrate a life well spent....Of an ICON who have touched so many lives including mine in a big way. A man who gave me water when a was thirty ,.....I can never forget the frustration hunger and deprivation my family and I was passing through before I was immediately employed....Today my first son an undergraduate bears MICHAEL because of the love and respect I have for my second earthly papa. We will miss the grand master as we continue to uphold his good legacy. With so much love? ...Robinson Odigili Oloma(customer service manager fcmb onitsha)

Otunba Balogun was a complete gentleman, whose warm and soft hands immediately lighten your anxiety at meeting him. He was a detribalised Nigerian entrepreneur who cherishes and rewards excellence. Anyone fortunate to have met him was inspired to become better at something. His enduring legacy will be the pursuit of excellence by all who knew him. He fulfilled his destiny in life and surely found peace with God.

We all have a date with our creator. No leaf drops from any tree in the whole wide world without the consent of God Almighty. Baba has gone to join his Creator, haven made a good impact in the lives of many individuals and communities at large. Baba came, he saw and indeed conquered. May God with His Mercy accept the soul of Baba. May HE also grant immediate and extended family members, friends & well-wishers he left behind the fortitude to bear the huge loss/gap. A great man has left surface of the earth. Sunree o Baba

How can one describe an enigma such as our founder and grand-founder. Is it his impeccable style, is it his brilliance, is it his large heart, is it his love for God and people, is it his pool of wisdom and deep rooted thinking. Large vacuum you have left for us, biggest shoes you have bequeathed to us, highest of standard you have committed to us. In all these we are persuaded of better days ahead because you prepared us daily on the need to entrench highest standard and great commitment in all we do while looking up to God for the strength and grace to go on. Adieu Grandfather of financial services in Nigeria, our captain who leads in the fiercest of battles and was known to win all contest and challenges. we will sorely miss you but daily we know your works and their strides will continue to comfort everyone of us. Our loss is Heaven's gain. Continue to rest in peace Baba rere. We love you. Good night SIR!!

Death is painful; however, death taking a precious jewel like you Otunba Olasubomi Balogun is more painful. You are a man with a good heart who cared so much about friends and family. You pioneered a new chapter in Nigeria’s banking industry. You also helped promote the values of what good Christianity should be and look like. You contributed to the development of every single person you met on your path and you never seized to be an inspiration to all. Thank you for living a great and fulfilled life. Adieu, sir.

Baba, as we often called the Chairman when I worked at FCMB, lived life to the fullest and while doing this established himself as a man of honor, class, strong values, and professional ethos. His life story and my personal contact with it at FCMB remain an inspiration to many and to me personally. Baba will continue to live on in the many hearts he has touched positively. Rest in peace, Otunba Subomi Balogun.
