The Emir of Ilorin and Chairman, Kwara State Council of Chiefs, Alhaji Dr Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has expressed satisfaction with the way international communities, particularly multinational organizations, embraced the Ilorin Emirate Grand Durbar, which holds every second day of Ileya festival.

The Emir spoke in Ilorin while receiving members of the Ilorin Emirate Durbar Committee led by its Chairman and Danmasani of Ilorin, Engineer Suleiman Yahaya Alapansanpa, in his Palace.

The committee was in the Emir’s palace to receive royal blessings ahead of the commencement of the 2024 Durbar activities.

Alhaji Sulu-Gambari expressed delight with the various supports the committee has gotten from sons and daughters of the Emirate, the local and state governments and particularly, the multinationals.

He assured that he would continue to give the committee necessary support and prayers for the success of job at hand, noting that the committee has never disappointed him since its inauguration years ago, urging members to keep up the good work.

“I have absolute trust and confidence in the leadership and members of this committee. I want to plead with you to continue to work in unison for the progress of the Emirate. It is a common knowledge that Ilorin is a unique community to reckon with”, the monarch said.

Earlier, Engineer Yahaya Alapansanpa described the Emir as a man of God, who is always interested in the progress and unity of his people.

He thanked the Emir for the confidence reposed in the committee and pledged to make the 2024 grand Durbar more unique and remarkable.

Alapansanpa said, “Though the present economic situation in the country is chaotic, all efforts are being put in place to look inward and ensure a huge success of the programme, hence the need for all sons and daughters of the Emirate to support the committee in this direction”.

During the visit, a retired Grand Kadi of the state, Justice Idris Haroun, offered special prayers for the Emir for long life, sound health and for him to witness more remarkable achievements during his life time on the throne of his forebears.
