Amadin Ogbewe



A touching letter written by Professor Pius Adesanmi, a Nigerian professor before he died aboard the ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed yesterday, to his daughter has surfaced.

The professor wrote the emotional letter in the year 2017, where he talked about leaving home at all times and leaving the little girl in a sad mood.

The letter follows what he had to go through with his daughter every time he had to take a flight or business trip. 

The letter also talks about how she would make him promise to buy McDonald meals for her whenever he came back from the trips.

Read below:

“The toughest part? The tears heralding every departure. The accusations. The tantrums. You are going again!!!

The pleading. The cajoling. The explanations. These trips, they are Daddy’s work. Your own trip with Daddy is in August. That is when the family vacation comes.But I’ve been to your work. Your office is not on an airplane. Every time you go to the airplane without me you say it is work.

Another round of coaxing, sweet talking, pleading. You try to explain this kind of work that takes you to the airplane. And away. From her. You are struggling. Then she breaks it down brilliantly the way nature has wired toddlers to be far beyond us.

Daddy is this also like the hard work that you say they give you money at the end of the month when you do it? Toddler-speak and syntax for salary.

Yes, Tise, when you work hard you make money to buy things.

So when you leave on the airplane, you make money to buy me happy meals?


Lots of happy meals?


At the new McDonalds?


Her face dissolves into happinness. She is dancing now and running around the house and helping me pack. And we dance like best friends all the way to the airport.

And she waves me bye and tells me to remember my promise of happy meals from the money I make on this trip.

I suppress a tear and walk to check in, afraid to look back and catch her gaze…”
