Judge Bola Ajibola (Rtd): Chairman of Occasion.

Aside the interest he has in encouraging the organisations of young minds doing great things for the love of country and who have put the Nicon Luxury Hotel Abuja event together under the partnership of the Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria and The DEFENDER Online Media, Prince Bola Ajibola (SAN) is particularly feeling honoured that he is once again going to be on seat while His Eminence Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, Sultan of Sokoto and Sarikin Mu’mineen of Nigeria will be giving keynote address and – along with Wife of the President Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, former Minister of Communications, Major General Tajudeen Olanrewaju and other doing well Nigerians – will be conferred with the honourary FELLOWSHIP as mark of recognition for their exemplary contributions to saving the soul of the nation April 28 of this month.

Prince Bola Ajibola, SAN, CFR, KBE, BL, LL.B, LL.D, FCI, NAILS, is another eminent Nigerian of long standing, whose name opens any door either within Nigeria, on the African continent, the Muslim World or any continent in the world particularly in Europe where he not only served at the instance of the world as Judge of the International Court of Justice (IJC) at The Hague and, shortly after retiring from that, again served his home country Nigeria as High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.

His Eminence Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, Keynote Speaker, Recipient, honourary Fellowship/Grand Patronship Award, Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria at Lecture/Award by the Institute in collaboration with The DEFENDER, at Nicon Luxury Hotel Abuja, on Saturday April 28, 2018.

No losing sight of the fact that this same enigmatic personality, who for 13 years has helped produce and continues to produce young leaders who will not steal but prudently manage the resources of Nigeria through his “Citadel of Academic and Moral Excellence” that Crescent University Abeokuta (CUAB) represents, served his country for over six years as Attorney-General and Minister of Justice without taking salaries from the government.  It is also instructive to the gathering of this write up to mention that Bola Ajibola is one father who was conferred, at the instance of the University of Buckingham, United Kingdom, by first female Prime Minister of Britain, Margret Thatcher, the honourary doctorate degree of Doctor of Law (LL.D.), which accrued to him through the character of his children at the institution and which was found out to be good moral character instilled in them from home.

Even since his retirement, Prince Bola Ajibola, who having recounted the many blessings that have accrued to the Crescent University, Abeokuta which he sold all his property to establish 13 years ago for which he continues to say, “alhamdulillahi, has continued to give his useful thoughts to successive Nigerian governments which in most cases have been beneficial to them and the country they have respectively governed.

Aisha Muhammadu Buhari: A useful woman, wife and mother in challenging period deserve our award – CILRMN, The DEFENDER.

It is in continuous show of his love for the country that, after having to travel all the way from Abeokuta, Ogun State capital to Abuja where he chaired the last Dialogue of Daily Trust early this year, that the 84-year-old octogenarian, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, father of Senior Advocate of Nigeria and many lawyers, has accepted without a second thought, ageing notwithstanding, to be Chairman of the maiden Lecture and Award programme of the Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria and The DEFENDER Online Media, which will hold at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Hall of the Nicon Luxury Hotel Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Saturday April 28, 2018.

Aside the interest he has in encouraging the organisations of young minds doing great things for the love of country and who have put the Nicon Luxury Hotel Abuja event together under the partnership of the Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria and The DEFENDER Online Media, Prince Bola Ajibola (SAN) is particularly feeling honoured that he is once again going to be on seat while His Eminence Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, Sultan of Sokoto and Sarikin Mu’mineen of Nigeria will be giving keynote address and – along with Wife of the President Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, former Minister of Communications, Major General Tajudeen Olanrewaju and other doing-well Nigerians – will be conferred with the honourary FELLOWSHIP as mark of recognition for their exemplary contributions to saving the soul of the nation April 28 of this month.

Governor Tambuwal of Sokoto State: Resilient as Leader of Federal Legislature and great as Governor in Nigeria’s Seat of Caliphate.

Whereas Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar III’s contributions to national, continental and global peace and development have been noticed by both the United Nations and the Vatican such that when the need to address each of the bodies arose in the past he was readily invited to address it on global security, peace and conflict resolution, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari’s celebration for her being useful woman, wife and mother complimenting her husband in a challenging period of national rebuilding, as well as Rt. Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal’s ability to scale through the complicated risks posed to his office as Speaker of House of Representatives (2011-2015) and his person by the highest power in the country at the time continue to impress the Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria (CILRMN) and The DEFENDER, which have therefore deemed it fit to show the rest of Nigerians and the world in general that resilience and perseverance at struggle for better society pay.

Governor Ajimobi’s specific quality that is known to the honouring organizations will come handy as General Tajudeen Olanrewaju will be celebrated for his giant stride, not only in successfully transforming the Nigeria’s communications sector in his days as minister, but also in various commitments he had made to national developments for the years his military career lasted, particularly as General Officer Commanding (GOC) Third Armoured Division, Nigerian Army.

Governor of Oyo State, Senator Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi: Will become a Fellow Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria (FCILRM) by his contribution to saving the soul of Nigeria.

The Registrar-General and Chief Executive Officer, Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria (CILRMN), one of the partners, Dr. Uzombah Innocent (FCILM), “We have decided to plan big for these great Nigerians to appreciate our doing-well people right in their lifetime.  We observe that Nigerians have all along appreciated their great minds only after they have passed on.  CILRMN and The DEFENDER are changing the narratives.  There are many other great Nigerians but our event for the celebration of them is continuous,” Uzombah said.

Talking about the Institute, the CILRMN boss said, “The Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria (CLRMN) was established primarily to fill the void in the specialist professional disciplines of loan and risk management practice, thereby complementing the noteworthy contributions of individual, academia and other professional bodies. The evolving highly competitive global economic scenario, with its demand for top flight efficiency and effectiveness have made it essential for specialist professional focus on loan and risk management as in the case already in the more advanced countries and a number of emerging economies of the world.”

Major General Tajudeen Olanrewaju (Rtd), Former Minister of Communications and Member, Provisional Ruling Council (PRC): For lifting Lagos State status from 12-Local Government structure to 20 and partaking in many local and international projects and programmes that have made Nigeria a great country, this General deserves our honour – Organisers.
