President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Babatunde Ogala, former National Legal Adviser of All Progressives Congress (APC), on his 60th birthday, July 15, 2021.
The president in a congratulatory message issued by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, on Wednesday in Abuja, joined family and friends to celebrate with the party stalwart, “whose knowledge and experience have been most invaluable to the country’’.
Buhari felicitated the Nigerian Bar Association, International Bar Association and professional colleagues of the legal luminary as they rolled out drums to savour the milestone with the former lawmaker, administrator and counsel to many organisations and governments.
The president affirmed that Ogala’s admirable profile in his career could only be attributed to his “fear of God, love for humanity and passion for showing kindness and thoughtfulness in all endeavours’’.
He said this was further evidenced in Ogala’s efforts in making sacrifices and working selflessly for the good of others and the country.
Buhari noted the contributions of the former APC Legal Adviser to the growth of democracy and good governance in the country, most profoundly in interpreting the constitution and manifesto of the party and guiding leaders to keep their promises.
The president prayed for longer life and more wisdom to serve the country as the notable lawyer and party loyalist turns 60.
