“Unity and maturity in this association have brought greater understanding among members and this is as a result of the constitutionally acceptable pattern of election by selection which was adopted.
“Nominations of candidates were made by the state, which makes it possible for members in the executive structure to spread across the states of the federation.“
In his acceptance speech, Isiwele promised to work with the other executive members to take the association to a greater height.
