The Gospel Musicians Association of Nigeria (GOMAN) members have elected Evangelist Dr. Olufunmilayo Aragbaiye as the National President of the association for another term alongside other new members of the executive at their National Congress and Election held at Abeokuta in Ogun state recently.
This was disclosed in a Press Statement issued and made available to CityMirrorNews on Sunday by the newly elected Public Relation Officer, PRO of the association, Evangelist Elizabeth Bankole Olubunmi, a.k.a. Asiiriwura.
According to the statement, the National President while reading her acceptance speech at the well conducted and crisis free election appreciated all members of the GOMAN across the country for their unflinching and unalloyed support to her and other members of the Exco, saying she would not relent in pursuing the betterment of the association in all ramifications.
Dr Aragbaiye said, “We are all winners in this election because this is a gathering of General’s children of God, the Holy people of God.
No looser among us as we are all winners. GOMAN fought the battle of backwardness, retardant, and yearning to move forward after a successful tenure to another greater level. So, we all won the battle”.
