Buhari Celebrates Afe Babalola At 87

Aare Afe Babalola (SAN)

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday celebrated one of the country’s brightest and resourceful lawyers, Afe Babalola (SAN), on his 87th birthday.

The President, in a statement released by his media aide Garba Shehu, also sent his warm felicitations to family, friends, close associates and professional colleagues of the legal luminary whose indelible imprint on the legal profession and academia remains legendary.

The President believes Babalola is an inspiration to both the young and old on the power of dreaming big and the audacity of following through, having started out as a Grade 11 teacher who by hard work, discipline and self-motivation propelled himself to great heights of success, including the establishment of a private university.

He affirmed that his wealth of knowledge and wisdom have been rightfully deployed in service of God, his country and humanity.

As the legal luminary marks his 87th birthday, President Buhari commended his large-heartedness and love for the poor and vulnerable.

He prayed for more of God’s abundant grace upon the senior advocate for longer life, good health and strength to further serve the country and humanity.
