‘I have all the documents Ahmed Maiwada signed. Maiwada worked for building himself and not ANA. I have the documents and name of the people that maligned with him.They all have to apologize for creating an ANA that doesn’t exist.’ Dr Raji said

In his address via Zoom , Profesoor Olu Obafemi commended all the branches of ANA who made it to the meeting.He noted that the progress of restoring the dignity of ANA a slayed down by his founding fathers is very crucial .
