Kwara Governor congratulates Saraki over new Waziri title

Date: 2018-07-23

Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed has hailed the elevation of the Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki from the title of Turaki of Ilorin to Waziri of Ilorin by the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu Gambari.

The Governor said this in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Abdulwahab Oba on Sunday in Ilorin.

Ahmed described the elevation as well-deserved considering the contributions of the Senate President to the development of the Emirate in particular and the entire state at large. "The announcement of the elevation to the prestigious title of Waziri by the Emir was a pleasant but fitting surprise to cap our joy over the exoneration by the Supreme Court from the Code of Conduct Tribunal trial.

"It is fitting that you have stepped into the traditional shoes of your father and our great mentor, Dr Abubakar Olusola Saraki.

"The time is apt, the occasion is unique and your profile is most fitting for this honour," Ahmed said.

The governor observed that the elevation would no doubt serve as morale booster for the Senate President to continue to do more for the emirate and the entire state, according to News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.

Gov Ahmed therefore, enjoined the new Waziri Ngeri of Ilorin not to relent on his oars to attract development and growth to the state and empowerment for its people.

The governor prayed God to guide the new Waziri and grant him wisdom to pilot the affairs of the new traditional office.
