The Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, on Monday emphasised the need to continue to properly harness information to address and improve the current situation in the country.

The Emir, while receiving the Managing Director of News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Malam Ali Muhammad Ali during a courtesy visit to his palace, noted that information was very important.

He added however, that reporting activities was not an easy task and should therefore not be taken with levity.

“Our prayer is that Almighty Allah should continue to guide us, have mercy on us and make Nigeria continue to live in unity,” Sulu-Gambari said.

He noted that NAN has shown the capacity to help the country in the area of utilising information to further develop the nation.

”NAN has been doing well in this regard, and I am sure that is due to the pedigree of you the Managing Director, especially with what you have done in the media industry so far.

”I am sure the agency will go a long way in helping the country get better,” the Emir said, praying for more success and breakthrough for the agency.

Speaking on the country Nigeria, Sulu-Gambari noted that a lot of the situation in the country in recent times have been improving.

”We now have many of our sons and daughters around the country, already married to those of other tribes, while some have settled for the sake of business and job transfers.

“Nigeria is our father’s land that has come to stay and will not be divided by the special grace of Almighty Allah,” he said.

The NAN Managing Director, while speaking earlier, had said the ongoing upgrading of the agency’s services would boost their operations and enhance productivity.

He said his major reason for visiting Kwara was to further assess the agency’s facilities.

“We need to know the challenges and how to provide the necessary equipment to boost production.

“We will then see how to cover the activities of the state and the Emirate.

“I am from Kano and we share the same way of life with Ilorin. That is why I have come to first pay my respect to the traditional leader.

“You are closer to the people and as a great leader and Chairman of traditional rulers in the state, you know more about the activities in the state,” Ali said.

He then solicited the support of the Emir and assured that the agency would continue to work assiduously in order to supply reliable and current information to the public. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
