He said the record achievements of His Royal Highness in the past 25 years as the 11th Emir of Ilorin further points to the significance of traditional rulers in the task of nation building. 

According to the labour leader, the prevailing spirit of tolerance and peaceful co-existence within the Ilorin Emirate,  the entire Kwara State, the geometric increase in the number of private and public  tertiary  institutions, the  historic renovation and maintenance of Ilorin Central Mosque to a world class edifice and the Royal admonition on the prevention of the spread of COVID: 19 through social distancing and  the use of face masks are indelible imprints of His Royal Highness.

Comrade Aremu also recalled that as a notable member of the 2014 National Confab,  His  Royal Highness, Alhaji (Dr.) Ibrahim Sulu Gambari, CFR, was an effective Royal voice for the progress, peace and unity of Kwara State, the North and Nigeria as a whole. 

The former governorship candidate on the platform of Labour Party in Kwara State, during 2019 elections  and  labour delegate to 2014 Confab said it was time for President Buhari  implemented the 2014 Confab’s  resolutions which among others  recognize the role of traditional institutions as advisory in the Constitution and recommends the establishment of a National Council of Traditional Rulers (NCTR) at the Federal level with  terms of reference that  include the involvement of Traditional Rulers in matters of tradition, culture and dispute resolution.

He prayed for a more rewarding and eventful sustained reign of His Royal Highness.
