It equally enjoined those who lost out in the election to join hands with the new executives, so that together they can move the union forward.
GAMA, however, advised the new President and his team to start work in earnest, ensure the completion of the ongoing projects they inherited from their predecessors and initiate new ones for the betterment of Ilorin Emirate and its people.
