President Muhammadu Buhari has paid tributes to Professor Felicia Adebola Adedoyin, a renowned professor of Education and composer of the National Pledge, saying her patriotic fervour will be remembered anytime the national pledge is recited.
President Buhari asserts that the thoughtful and solemn words of the National Pledge by the iconic composer, have become an invocation to every citizen of the country to serve our fatherland with faithfulness, loyalty and honesty.
In a statement signed by Femi Adesina, his Spokesman, the President submitted that Nigerians will continue to honour the memory of the legend who in 33 words gave Nigeria a timeless promise to keep for the nation.
President Buhari extended his commiseration to the Adedoyin family, friends and associates as well as the Government and people of Oyo State on the passing of the academic and writer, whose immense works will remain indelible in our minds.
He prayed Almighty God to grant the departed eternal rest.
