Speaking during the presentation, RAM-C President, Mr Michael Fasiku, noted that the club emphasized on family values and community services, governed by love and supports exhibited within the individual members of intellectuals with various disciplines.
”We are here today to recognize and honour an illustrious son of Aiyegunle Gbede who has not only done greatly for Aiyegunle-Gbede well 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.
Fasiku described Arc. Salman as a man with a right mental attitude and a character worth recognizing and honoring, saying he had done extremely well in his chosen career as a professional Architect.
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 difficult situation. Promptly, he would step in to offer some succor 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 witness it first hand, and his records speaks louder, even audible to the deaf.
”RAM-C is not only here to recognize and honor 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.
In his Response, Arc. Salman appreciated the group for counting him worthy of the award and for declaring their support for him to vie again for the Green chamber of the National Assembly.
According to Salman, his interest in politics stemmed from his love for his people and desiring the best and good life for them as well as influencing development for his fatherland.
He noted that with Government resources and backing, one could achieve far more community service than those outside it which was the main reason he ventured into politics.
”I contested in PDP primaries as an aspirant for the Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency in 2019, I lost out but he didn’t give up.
”Politics is a game of give and take, politicians may not win every time but it is important to stay focus at all time,” he said.
He, therefore thanked the group for the gesture and for calling on him to contest again for Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency to represent his people in the Green chamber of the National Assembly.
He assured the group of his commitment to continue to seek the best for the good people of Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency, and promised to consider their request to contest.
