Buhari Mourns Former Supreme Court Justice Bolarinwa Babalakin


December 04, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family of former Supreme Court Justice Bolarinwa Babalakin, who passed on Saturday at the age of 94.

The president equally commiserated with the government and people of Osun state on the loss of the eminent jurist.

According to the president, Justice Babalakin rose to the “pinnacle of his profession as a judge of the highest court in the land, becoming one of the final authorities in legal issues in the country, thereby greatly enriching the nation’s jurisprudence.”

The president, in a condolence message issued by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the late Justice Babalakin, long after his retirement, continued to give wise counsel to the Muslim community, especially the Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria (MUSWEN) where he was a former president.

While praying for the deceased’s family members to have the fortitude to bear the loss, President Buhari urged them to take consolation in the fact that the deceased lived to a ripe old age, left behind a good name, served as a mentor and source of inspiration to many and became an icon of his profession.

The president prayed that Almighty Allah will reward his good deeds with Aljannah.
