”We are here today to recognize and honour an illustrious son of Aiyegunle Gbede who has not only done greatly well for Aiyegunle-Gbede but for Okun at large.

”In the last few years, our great club has watched and tracked the charitable acts and contributions of Arc. Salman to the welfare and happiness of a common man, especially in Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency and the entire Kogi West Senatorial District at large,” he said.

RAM-C President stressed that Salman remained a man with the virtues of honesty, discipline and hard work, a man that connected well with people and took other people’s problems as his.

”Architect Salman is a philanthropist who does not want to see people in a difficult situation. Promptly, he would step in to offer some succour based on his resources.

”This is crystal clear to everyone including the blinds and also to us in RAM-C based on our observations and consultations.

”In lieu of the aforementioned facts, we say Arc. Idris Salman build people more than houses because we have witnessed it, and his records speak louder, even audible to the deaf.

”RAM-C is not only here to recognize and honour Arc. Salman, but we’re also here to ask you to vie for the office of Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal constituency in the forthcoming 2023 National Assembly election,” Fasiku said.
