Dr. Salisu recalled his interaction with the late monarch on various occasions.

“Notable among our meeting with Atta was the maiden visit of KEELF to the palace where he, after listening to the vision of the group, described it as the most organised and prepared he has met so far. He instantly accepted to serve in the capacity of Grand Patron of KEELF,” he said.

In his response, the chief mourner, on behalf of the council of chiefs, thanked the delegation for coming and assured them of the continuous support of the palace. He described the Attah as one who prioritized educational development and revival of the rich cultural heritage of the Igala people. He prayed for continuous peace and unity in the kingdom.

The delegation was led by the Convener, Dr. Salisu Ogbo Usman and Coordinator, Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim. Other members include Dr. Aurelius Omali, Local Government Coordinators and members drawn from the nine Local Government Areas in Kogi East senatorial district.
