President Muhammadu Buhari commiserates with the family, friends and professional colleagues of erudite human rights lawyer, Fred Agbaje, who passed on Saturday.
The President, who received the news of the sad development with shock, described the constitutional lawyer as “an ardent advocate against corruption and canvasser for internal democracy in political parties, who also believed strongly in the sanctity of the ballot box.”
President Buhari commends the fearlessness of the late lawyer in calling for the cleansing of bad eggs in the judiciary and standing up for his beliefs as he fought for the rights of the less-privileged in the society.
He notes that the country has lost a principled man as he enjoins Me. Agbaje’s admirers to keep the flag flying.
The President prays that God Almighty consoles the Agbaje family and all those who mourned the deceased legal practitioner.
