Immortalise my father, Saraki's sister begs Kwara gov-elect

Date: 2019-04-29

Oyinkansola, daughter of the late Kwara State political icon, Dr Olusola Saraki, has appealed to the state governor-elect, Abdulrahman Abdulrazak, to immortalise her father.

She said her late father paid his dues in the politics of the state.

She made the call in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday.

Oyinkansola urged the governor-elect not to let the alleged infractions of her brother and President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, stop him from honouring their father.

The statement read, "Congratulations, governor-elect, Abdulrahman Abdulrazak. I am appealing to you sir to immortalise my father, Dr Olusola Saraki, the man believed to be the strong pillar of Kwara State politics during his lifetime.

"With all due respect sir, may I remind you that my father single-handedly established political grounds in Kwara State in the Second Republic.

"It may interest you to know that most governors of the state rode on his popularity and influence to the corridors of power; they include Adamu Atta, Cornelius Adebayo, Mohammed Lawal and his son, Bukola Saraki.

"Everything Bukola is today was my father's doing, yet he could not think of honouring his father by immortalising him.

"It just shows the kind of son he is. I acknowledge that my brother may have stepped on people's toes but sir, my father deserves to be honoured in Kwara State."

Oyinkansola said Abdulrasak would score more political points by immortalising the late Saraki, adding that it was the only way her fatherís heritage could live on.

"I believe you will serve the people of Kwara well. I know you are a man of integrity. I am appealing to you sir in the name of Allah to do this for me so that my father's name and all he has put into the development of Kwara State will not perish," the statement added.
