Kwarans replies Bukola Saraki, Commends the State Government on the action taken so far

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has received plaudits from the Kwara Progressives Group, KPG, over the alleged recovery of a choice property belonging to the state but allegedly appropriated by the ex-Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deceased father, the late Olusola Saraki.


Bukola Saraki had in a release he personally signed alleged Gov. AbdulRahman of seizing his late father, Second Republic senate leader, late Olusola Saraki’s property and moving to rename the State University named after the deceased ex-Second Republic Senate leader.

This action is clearly a manifestation of vengeance and it shows that this Governor is not out to serve any public purpose or pursue any development agenda. In his narrow-mindedness, he believes his victory at the polls is empowerment, entitlement and enablement to settle scores, provoke and pursue inter-family rivalry.

Those who voted for the party in power in Kwara State and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq obviously did not vote for the man to enable him to wage war against Dr Olusola Saraki and his legacies. They expected the development and fulfilment of promises.

If the Governor believes people are not taking stock of his misguided and deceptive actions and that because he is in power, he could do whatever he likes, he must be a joker.

Also, this war against the Sarakis will not successfully veil his unpreparedness for governance and divert people’s attention from the glaring lack of visionary, clear-cut plan to deliver on his empty promises to the people. He definitely cannot get away with all the atrocities he has been committing,” Saraki wrote.

In a statement KPG released, and signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Rotimi Sulyman, the group backed Gov. AbdulRahman’s action and called on him to pursue the matter to a logical conclusion.

Besides, Saraki is only being given a dose of his own medicine. We were living witnesses to his jackbooted dictatorship. Has he forgotten that on assumption office as the state governor in 2003, he dissolved all the 16 LGAs Chairmen in Kwara State under his successor, late Muhammed Lawal and in their places appointed caretaker chairmen.

That under him, the Idi-Ape, a family compound of the Lawals was razed down and the licence to operate a nursery and primary granted to the deceased ex-governors third wife and sister to the incumbent governor, Aisha, was revoked by his government.

That the popular Idi-Ape Market was scrapped and anything that had Lawal on it was attacked with the sole aim of obliterating the deceased from history and erasing his name but the man is evergreen.
