He called on members across the country to shun all divisive tendencies and work with the new executives to build a formidable AGN.

“I can say today that all we have done in the past three years was foundation laying, so let us join hands and build on the successes we have so far achieved,” the president said.

Rollas, who was first elected as national president of the AGN in 2019, said a date would soon be announced for the inauguration of the new leadership.
