While addressing reporters at the end of the meeting, the National Secretary of the association, Baba Uthman said that the decision will be conveyed to every member of the group.
He said; “This is a decision that has been taken by the highest decision making body of the association. As it is taken here, it will go down the ladder down to our members at the grassroots.
