Reaction of His Royal Highness, the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji (Dr.) Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari CFR on the allegations by the acclaimed Moro Elder's Forum

Date: 2017-05-19

The allegation is libelous, condemnable, uncharitable and unwarranted because the authors are not legally competent to pursue any claim under any guise due to the fact that they are not members of the State Traditional council.

This has further exposed their ignorance of the elementary history on which the Emirate is being governed.

However, the current system of governance in Nigeria is the outcome of the numerous conquest and Jihad which predates the advent of colonial administration. There are 774 local governments across the country backed by the nationís constitution, any activity going on therein, is a product of the constitution which cannot be altered by anyone accept by legislative process which must also comply with historical facts.

You cannot ask for what is not yours. Traditional rulers are born not made by anybody. The stool of the Emir of Ilorin is paramount and extends across the entire Emirate. Once historical accounts do not reflect your antecedents as a monarch, it will be out of place to be laying claim to what is not yours.

About the issue of allocation, it is in line with the dictates of the constitution and the resources is usually channel towards the appropriate beneficiaries; the Alanguas, Magajis and Daudus who are the major components of the Emirate Council are serving as the Emirís Lieutenants in their respective domains.

Members of the public are thereby advised to disregard the speculation and undue claims aimed at destabilizing the existing peaceful and harmonious working relationship in the Emirate.
