“It is worrisome that the name of the Emir of Ilorin, Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, is being mentioned to cause disaffection among political gladiators in the state.

“The Emir is neither a card-carrying member of any political party nor staff of any advertising agency.

“His Royal Highness is always passionate about a united Ilorin Emirate, a united Kwara State as well as a united Nigeria. He is a to all citizens of Kwara State irrespective of their political platforms.

“It is expected that the advertising agency will demonstrate a high level of professionalism and competence in its operations without necessarily dragging the palace into its affairs in order to achieve compliance.

“There should be codes and ethics guiding every business. Such rules and regulations should always be leveraged in order to achieve the desired goals.”
