Buhari Greets former CJN, Belgore at 80

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated erudite lawyer, administrator and former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Salihu Modibo Alfa Belgore, on his 80th birthday.
The President, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, joined all professional colleagues, family and friends of the legal luminary in commemorating the unique milestone, which by all standards, has been preceded with years of service to his fatherland and humanity, culminating in the prestigious national awards of the Commander Order of the Niger (CON) and Grand Commander Order of the Niger (GCON).
He noted that Belgore’s passion for jurisprudence as a public servant, who variously served as a Judge, Chief Judge, Justice of the Court of Appeal, before being elevated to the Supreme Court Bench in 1986, from where he reached the pinnacle of his career as Chief Justice Nigeria, should continue to inspire the younger generation of lawyers in making the right choices for nation building.
Buhari recalled the octogenarian’s versatility in issues of culture, language and history, and his penchant for research, assuring that the former Chief Justice, who was also Chairman of the Federal Judicial Service Commission, has already booked an honorable place in the history of Nigeria.
