Buhari pats Akintola Williams

22 October 2015, 07:46

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has saluted Akintola Williams, the doyen of accounting in Nigeria, on the occasion of Akintola Williams Distinguished Lecture Series, 2015.

This information is contained in a statement issued by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

The President applauded the continuing contributions of Williams to national progress and development, even at the grand old age of 96, through the lecture series aimed at promoting integrity, professionalism and sound corporate governance in Nigeria.

He commended Williams and the organisers of the annual lecture series on their choice of "Leadership Factors and Good Corporate Governance - Key to National Growth and Development", as theme.

"It is a very apt and topical theme as he prepares to inaugurate a new Federal Executive Council to drive the implementation of his administration's agenda for national renaissance with the support and cooperation of all patriots and stakeholders in the well-being of Nigeria."

Buhari also seized the opportunity to congratulate the Father of the Day, Akintola Williams on his 96th birthday anniversary which was marked recently.

He prayed that God Almighty, who had blessed Williams with such extraordinary longevity in the service of his nation and humanity, would grant him many more years of good health and worthy contributions to the development of his fatherland.
