President Muhammadu Buhari warmly felicitates with foremost jurist, Owelle of Ogwashi Uku, Chief George Uwechue, SAN, on his 82nd birthday, joining friends and family to celebrate with the legal luminary, whose antecedents continue to inspire many in nation building, particularly in law, leadership and development issues.
The President joins the Nigerian Bar Association and Body of Benchers, which he served as a Chairman for some years, in congratulating the statesman, who in spite of his national and global achievements, has steadily remained relevant in community development, setting up structures and creating opportunities for others to rise in life.
As the octogenarian marks another age, President Buhari commends his contributions to national development, through legal practice and law making, gaining prominence as a two-term member of the House of Representatives and Speaker pro tempore.
The President prays for longer life and good health for the Owelle of Ogwashi Uku.
