On the occasion of this year’s Akintola Williams Distinguished Lecture Series, President Muhammadu Buhari salutes Mr. Akintola Williams, the renowned doyen of the accounting profession in Nigeria, in whose honour the annual lectures were established.
President Buhari applauds the continuing contributions of Mr. Williams to national progress and development, even at the grand old age of 96, through the lecture series which were established to promote integrity, professionalism and sound corporate governance in Nigeria.
President Buhari also commends Mr. 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 the theme of this year’s lecture.
The President believes that 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.
President Buhari also seizes this opportunity to congratulate the Father of the Day, Mr. Akintola Williams on his 96th birthday anniversary which was marked recently.
He prays that God Almighty, who has blessed Mr. Williams with such extraordinary longevity in the service of his nation and humanity, will grant him many more years of good health and worthy contributions to the development of his fatherland.
