He recalled the exchange of visits between him and the Deji in 2019 which he noted, have cemented the relationship between the Sultanate and the Akure kingdom.
“These significant events, which had taken place, better illustrate the depth of mutual understanding and relationship between Sokoto Sultanate and Akure Kingdom, which not only that both of us have sustained but also, we have improved upon over the times.
“We assure the Deji of our continued support at all times, having worked closely with him since he became Deji,” said the Sultan.
