Former senate president Bukola Saraki thanks women/people of Kwara for their support
Former senate president Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has taken to social media to appreciate all those who stood by him in solidarity for the unfortunate demolition of his family house in Ilorin, Kwara state this morning.
His appreciation mostly goes out to the women who protested against the act as well as all Kwarans for their support. Recalled that there was an uproar in the early morning of today following the early demolition of the Saraki family house called the Ile Arugbo by the order of the state governor.
Saraki wrote, “Following the development this morning in Ile Arugbo, I want to commend the women and men, old and young, who displayed their affection, love and staunch support for my late father and the family. I appreciate the genuine support of the women and youths who stood firmly in the face of aggression and naked show of force.
Your action throughout the night gave full expression to my belief that what Ile Arugbo represents to all of us is etched in our hearts. It goes beyond the physical structure. I am happy that you were not intimidated as you stood your ground. This day will go down as the day you reciprocated the love and affection my father and family have for you. You have displayed a gesture of goodwill and passionate love. We assure you that justice shall prevail in a not too distant future.
May God bless us all.
Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, C.O.N
