“As a Chief Magistrate in the Sokoto State Judiciary, Your lordship had always been applauded for the sterling qualities of hard work, integrity and unreserved commitment to national growth and development. This is evident by the numerous awards and decorations your lordship had earned over the years.

“Your lordship’s immeasurable contributions to the advancement’ of the Judiciary and our dear nation Nigeria, through many years of meritorious national service is indeed commendable. Your lordship’s quest for justice, equity and fairness is worthy of emulation by us all and generations to come. I have had the great privilege to be taught by your lordship at the Nigerian Law School from 1985-1986 and have appeared several times before your lordship at the Supreme Court. Your Lordship remains my mentor even after a glorious retirement from the beach.

“Indeed, the mark Your lordship has left on the judiciary and the entirety of the legal profession will serve as a reference point and inspiration for lawyers across the globe. As Your Lordship celebrates this gargantuan milestone, it is my earnest prayer that the many years ahead be blessed with divine grace, good health and prosperity.”
