“My Lord, it is a huge privilege to have the opportunity to pen down these words to you.
You are a great woman, one whose feats stands tall amongst equals. You dedicated the greatest part of your life in service to the Judiciary; from the Magistracy level up to the Supreme Court of Nigeria! Sir, you are success personified and a legal Amazon.
You defied all odds and achieved a no easy feat! And you proved to everyone especially the womenfolk that if they desire, work hard and remain focused, they too can achieve great heights.
I wish to also congratulate Your Lordship on the occasion of your 70th birthday, I wish Your Lordship many more happy years in good health and happiness.
Once more, Happy retirement-cum-happy birthday.
Thank you for the wonderful years of selfless service”.
