“This organization guiding many tradesmen today has lost its characteristics with the weakening of the Ottoman Empire and its economy becoming dependent on foreign countries and has disappeared leaving an important trace for the tradesmen community and in our civilization history. I would like to express my pleasure to participate in the Ahi-Order Week events and UNIKOP Rectors meeting held in Kırşehir every year in the presence of Ahi Evran-ı Veli, who is the leader of this culture, ethics and wisdom. While I commemorate all our elders and tradesmen who served in this community in the person of Pir Ahi Evrân-ı Veli, the founder of the Ahi-Order, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who work hard to make this organization unforgettable. "
