From Taofiq Jimoh Adeniyi, Ilorin
The Emir of Ilorin and Chairman, Kwara State Council of Chiefs, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has attributed the peaceful coexistence in Ilorin to the frequent supplications of the community for divine intervention.
The Emir made this disclosure when he received in audience the people of Agaka residential quarters of Ilorin, who were in his Palace on a ‘thank you’ visit over the appointment and installation of Alhaji Hanafi Omotosho Kawu Agaka as the seventh Daudu Agaka of Ilorin.
According to the Royal father, the ancient city has been enjoying peace and tranquility because of the people’s faith in the efficacy of prayers.
He explained that unlike in other areas where peace is threatened, the people of the ancient city have always sought divine help against external invasion.
He further explained that the relative peace in the community, if sustained, could attract investment and in turn, enhance growth and development for the state and the people in particular.
News Hub Mag! reports that the revered monarch thereafter prayed for divine intervention in some of the issues escalating insecurity in parts of the country, restating that Ilorin, as a community, would sustain the prayers.
