President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with government and people of Lagos State over the passing away of Justice Isiaka Isola Oluwa at 102, whose legacy of fairness, integrity and forthrightness in administering justice continues to reverberate long after retirement.

Buhari also sent condolences to family of the late Justice of the State High Court, his friends and professional colleagues, affirming that his meritorious public service was most remarkable, especially contributions to the growth of education as Pro-Chancellor of Lagos State University and Chairman of Governing Council.

The President in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, yesterday, prayed that God would receive the soul of the Centenarian, and comfort his family.

Also, National Leader, All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has eulogised the virtues of late Justice Oluwa.

In a condolence message yesterday, Tinubu described Justice Oluwa as one of the first and foremost fine gentlemen, loving husband and a doting father, saying: “He was adored by all those who came into contact with him. My deepest sympathy and condolences go to his loving family, friends, acquaintances and professional colleagues. He will surely be missed by all of them.”

Meanwhile, an Ibadan-based group, Foundation for Ibadan Television Anniversary Celebration (FITAC), yesterday felicitated with the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Kayode Adetona, CFR, Ogbagba 11, on his 86th birthday.

This was contained in a statement made available to The Guardian in Ibadan by its Public Relations Officer, Oloye ‘Lekan Alabi.

Also, the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has felicitated with its leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, who clocks 94 years today.

In a statement yesterday, National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, said Chief Fasoranti had been a legendary leader who rose from the life of discipline as a teacher, indeed a principal of famous schools that produced illustrious students holding firsts in many areas of life today.
