President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with the founder of Afe Babalola University, Aare Afe Babalola, on his 91st birthday, October 30, 2020, joining friends and family members to celebrate with the educationist, agriculturist and legal luminary.
In a statement issued on Thursday by the Special Adviser to the president, Femi Adesina, Buhari congratulated Aare Babalola for another year added to his life, and more opportunities to give and show that sharing brings more joy than acquisition.
Buhari also commended his antecedents in health, education and legal career, training more than 2,500 lawyers in the country, with 15 already recognized as Senior Advocates of Nigeria.
The President hailed the educationist for his high sense of patriotism, visionary leadership and penchant for always channelling his energy and resources into projects that directly impact the life of Nigerians, and providing wise counsels to leaders in both the private and public sectors on best ways to move the country forward.
As the renowned lawyer and philanthropist turns 91, President Buhari prayed that the almighty God will bless him and his family, and grant him longer life to keep serving the nation and humanity.
