I am saddened by the demise of the late Justice Ahmad Olanrewaju Belgore, JCA (Rtd). His passing has left a void in our hearts and in the legal fraternity that will be deeply felt for years to come.

Justice Belgore was not merely a legal luminary; he was a towering figure whose contributions to the legal profession and the community at large were nothing short of extraordinary. His dedication to the pursuit of justice, his unwavering commitment to upholding the rule of law, and his profound impact on the lives of countless individuals are a testament to his exceptional character and unparalleled integrity.

As a former justice of the court of appeal, Justice Belgore’s judgments were marked by wisdom, fairness, and a keen sense of justice. His rulings reflected a deep understanding of the law and a steadfast commitment to ensuring that justice was served. Throughout his illustrious career, he upheld the highest standards of professionalism and integrity, earning the respect and admiration of colleagues, peers, and the public alike.

Beyond his contributions to the legal profession, Justice Belgore was also a dedicated community leader who selflessly served the people of Ilorin and beyond. His advocacy for social justice, his efforts to empower the disadvantaged, and his unwavering support for the rule of law endeared him to all who had the privilege of knowing him.

In his passing, we have not only lost a legal giant but also a mentor, a friend, and a role model. His legacy will continue to inspire future generations of legal practitioners to strive for excellence, to uphold the principles of justice and fairness, and to serve their communities with integrity and compassion.

I extend my deepest condolences to the family of Justice Ahmad Olanrewaju Belgore, the Ilorin Emirate, the bar, and the bench. May his soul rest in eternal peace, and may his memory continue to be a source of comfort and inspiration to us all.
