The politician pleaded with all Ilorin born sons and daughters in diaspora irrespective of their political leanings to see the ceremony as their own and always work towards its success.

“It’s true I’m a member of APC but for personal reasons, I didn’t contest for any positions and thank God all the primaries of the political parties had come and gone.”

He added that, “We are first and foremost indigenes of Ilorin before we join any political party, so I’m pleading with my brothers and sisters irrespective of our political leanings to support Ilorin Emirate Durbar ceremony because its our collective symbol.It must grow from strength to strength and remain forever.”

He also said that ,“Durbar is something that we see as our culture and we are proud of it and ready to contribute our quota to keep it growing and sustainable.

“It’s not just donating money but coming around to be associated with the committee and appreciate them for promoting our culture, that is what we are talking about.”

MM who later donated N10M explained that the N10 million will be shared in the following order: N5 million for the Ilorin Durbar Committee, N2 million for the maintenance of the Ilorin Emirate Central Mosque, N1 million for the Emirate Football team for Durbar, N1 million for the Ilorin Emirate Youth Development Association and N1 million for Ilorin Emirate Descendants Progressive Union.
