“Many who were close to the erudite jurist fondly described him as an avid reader who loved Nigeria and had a passion for the job.

It described him as a staunch proponent for judicial reforms in the country, the late Musdapher was a frontline bastion for the entrenchment of constitutional democracy in the country. Indeed, his transition marks the exit of a great legal icon and an astute adjudicator.
