President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday congratulates a renowned Chartered Accountant, John K. Randle, as he turns 74 on Saturday.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President said he joined Randle’s professional colleagues, friends and family in celebrating him.
He noted that the septuagenarian’s pacesetting achievements in the management and business world have continued to motivate the younger generation of Nigerians.
The statement read in part, “The President extols the disciplined attention the Bashorun of Lagos has given to the development of education, and his penchant for always advocating advancement of the human character with the right values, leaving an indelible mark as the former Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of Lagos State University.
“As Bashorun Randle clocks 74, President Buhari believes the Chartered Accountant’s career path, serving as Chairman and President of many institutions, boards, councils and companies, and working in advisory capacities for governments, deserves special recognition and recommendation for all upcoming professionals.
“The President prays that the almighty God will always recall the many good works of Bashorun Randle, grant him good health and longer life to continue serving his country and humanity.”
