Gov. AbdulRazaq, Ilorin Emirate Chiefs, Others Pay Last Respect To Late 11th Balogun Gambari, Laaro Buhari



Eminent personalities in the Ilorin Emirate and beyond on Friday converged to pay their last respect to the 11th Balogun Gambari of Ilorin, Alhaji Abdulkareem Laaro Buhari Morogo III who died last week Friday at the age of 97.

The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, the Ciroma of Ilorin, Barr. Abubakar Bature Sulu-Gambari SAN, the Turaki of Ilorin, Senator Saliu Mustapha (Kwara Central); the Executive Chairman of Federal Character Commission, Dr. Muibat Faridah Dankaka and a former governorship aspirant in the state, Ambassador Abdulfatai Yahaya Seriki were among the dignitaries that attended the fidau.

Led by the Chief Imam of Ilorin, Dr. Muhammad Bashir Solihu OON, alongside other Islamic scholars in the Ilorin, the fidau featured sermon which was delivered by the Grand Mukadam of Ilorin, Sheikh Suleiman Dan-Borno.

He urged holders of power to always reflect on the time when they were nobody and enjoined those who have had their status elevated in the society not to get swayed with the euphoria of their present status.

Dan-Borno also called on wealthy people to know that charity begins at home adding that they need to be appreciated at home before attracting public accolades.

He admonished the citizens to adhere to the instructions of their leaders so long that they do not contravene the dictates of Almighty Allah

Accordingto him, “Those who will be successful will have stories to tell. They will have to demonstrate their charity from home. The late former Balogun Gambari was a peace loving man, a bridge builder and a good family man.”

He therefore called on the children of the deceased to forge a common front, sustain the good legacies of their late father and above all not to quarrel over anything.
