President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed best wishes to renowned, pioneer Chartered Accountant in Africa, Chief Akintola Williams, as he clocked 99 years on Thursday.
Buhari joined Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun, family and friends, professional colleagues, mentees, and other well-wishers as they celebrate the man who taught Nigerians how to seek and achieve transparency and accountability.
The President believed that the pioneer efforts of Chief Williams in his chosen field and continued show of interest have transformed the profession into noble heights.
He also praised the celebrant for not limiting his God-given intelligence and brilliance to his profession as he also got himself deeply involved in the promotion of arts and culture, preservation of the environment and development of good governance for which he has been honoured in different countries and climes.
Buhari urged other professionals to emulate the dedication, steadfastness, industry, commitment and untiring sense of responsibility that Akintola has continued to exhibit for many decades in order to take their professions to higher realms.
Buhari also prayed God Almighty to grant the revered gentleman the grace to continue to serve as a source of inspiration to younger ones who look up to him as a role model.
