President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the former National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Babatunde Ogala, SAN, as he turns 60 on July 15, 2021, joining family and friends to celebrate with the party stalwart, whose knowledge and experience he said have been most invaluable to the country.
The president also rejoiced with the Nigerian Bar Association, International Bar Association and professional colleagues of the legal luminary as they celebrate the milestone with the former lawmaker, administrator and counsel to many organisations and governments.
Buhari said Ogala’s admirable profile in his career can only be attributed to his fear of God, love for humanity and passion for showing kindness and thoughtfulness in all endeavours, further evidenced in making sacrifices and working selflessly for the good of others and the country.
He noted the contributions of the former APC Legal Adviser to the growth of democracy and good governance in Nigeria, most profoundly in interpreting the constitution and manifesto of the party and guiding leaders to keep their promises.
“As the notable lawyer and party loyalist turns 60, the president prays for longer life and more wisdom to serve the country,” Femi Adesina, the president’s spokesman, said in a statement.
