My late father, justice Bolarinwa Babalakin rejected a job of $250,000 to dedicate life to charity ― Son claims

Son of Justice Bolarinwa Babalakin, Wale Babalakin, has revealed that his late father rejected a job offer of $250,000 to dedicate his life to charity and settling disputes among people of various classes and statuses.

Wale made this known at the three-day Fidau prayer, organised with the Muslim Association of Nigeria (MAN), by the family, at his country home in Gbongan.

According to him, “Baba was contented with life; his belief in God is unimaginable. The deceased’s love for humanity led him to settle disputes between different categories of persons across the country.”

While disclosing that, his late father rejected the job offer after he retired in 1991, Wale quoted him to have said that, he was not going to do anything for money again because he wants to spend the rest of his life for charity.

“One day I came to meet him that we have a very big arbitration in my office and everyone has suggested that you have the calibre to be one of the arbitrators.

“I asked if he will do it but Baba kept to his word of not doing anything that concerned money again. I went on pestering him that $250,000 is the amount that will be paid for the job, I mentioned one of his bosses and friends who is the second arbitrator, yet he rejected the offer,” he stressed further.
