The Anambra State Government has congratulated Africa’s foremost constitutional law scholar, Professor Ben Nwabueze, on his 90th birthday, describing him as a global treasure.
In a message signed by Governor Willie Obiano, the Anambra State government said that Professor Nwabueze is “probably the world’s greatest constitutional law thinker alive at least in the English-speaking world”.
Governor Obiano recalled how the Supreme Court of Nigeria decades ago officially proclaimed “Nwabueze the leading authority on constitutional issues throughout Africa.
“The government and people of Anambra State are truly grateful that at 90 years Professor Nwabueze is not only alive but reasons most profoundly and writes so enchantingly and so lucidly and so logically. The flourish of his writing is matchless.
