25th Anniversary: Emir has made Ilorin Emirate foremost in Nigeria – Gobir
Wazirin Hausa and renowned Entrepreneur, Alhaji Yakubu Gobir, has said that Ilorin Emirate in the last 25 years has been transformed, becoming one of the most famous Emirates in the country.
In a congratulatory message to the Emir of Ilorin on the event commemorating his 25 years on the throne, the front line philanthropist said the reign of the revered monarch would remain a point of reference for many reasons.
Waziri Gobir, said that the significance of the date of the Emir’s Silver Jubilee is not lost on him as a student of history, because it coincides with Armistice Day. At 11am, on the 11th day of November, 1918 there was ceasefire bringing World War 1(one of the bloodiest wars in history) to an end.
He commended the Emir for his peaceful disposition and his spirit of accommodating people from all walks of life, which he said is one of the Emir’s endearing qualities.
Gobir also lauded the sensitivity of the Chairman, Kwara State Council of Chiefs to the plight of the less privileged.
The renowned Social Entrepreneur noted that the rich and well to do in the ancient town have a lot to emulate from the Emir in changing the old narrative and lifting the downtrodden from the stranglehold of penury.
While thanking Almighty Allah for the growth and development the Ilorin Emirate has witnessed over the past 25 years of Dr Sulu-Gambari’s reign, Gobir expressed the hope that the coming years would be even more prosperous.
He urged the people of Ilorin Emirate to continue to rally around the monarch. Gobir prayed to Almighty Allah to grant the Emir continued good health, prosperity and long life.
