I join thousands of people in Nigeria and in diaspora to celebrate Barrister Babatunde Irukera on his 52nd birthday.
I thank God for his grace upon your life. Though my first major contact with you was during your 50th birthday when you spoke eloquently about the plight of our people and the way out of our predicaments.
I have since then studied your comportment, interactions and actions in and out of office and have concluded that you remain one of our first eleven.
Without any iota of sycophancy I see you as honest, detribalized, courageous exposed and focused. Your recent actions in the discharge of your duties has showcased you as incorruptible and loyal to your oath of office and allegiance.
I am a witness to how on three occasions, out of your hard earned resources you reached out to the whole state with palliatives.
On this day, I wish you long life in good health and abundance. As we pray that your dreams and desires come true, You shall not loose your reward. Congratulations.
Hon. Dayo Akanmode_
