Browsing: Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki

Saraki, in whose administration as Governor of Kwara State, Ogundeji served, described the death of the late politician, civil servant and educationist as a great loss to the state, particularly at this time, when the wisdom and experience of senior stakeholders are needed to steer the ship of the state.

Led by former Governor of Kwara State and senator who represented Kwara North senatorial district in the 7th and 8th Senate, Alhaji Shaba Lafiagi, the stakeholders said the meeting with Dr. Saraki was part of the consultations that the people of the zone have embarked upon and that they are set to meet with other key leaders across the state.

The president, in a press statement released on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 by his spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina, had been quoted as saying that he “tried very hard to get the 8th (National) Assembly to do same (organise a security summit) for the sake of the country and I didn’t succeed much.”

In a series of tweets on his @BukolaSaraki handle, Saraki commended Na’Allah, a one-time Deputy Majority Leader in the Senate, saying that legislators must always put the needs of the people, over the interests of their party.

In a statement issued by his Media Office in Ekiti, Faseyi emphasized the role that the Committee — which is Chaired by the immediate past Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki — played in ensuring that both the Governor Seyi Makinde and former Governor Ayodele Fayose-led factions, reached amicable compromises ahead of the Congress which held last Monday in Osogbo, Osun State.

Saraki in a statement signed by the head of his Media Office, Yusuph Olaniyonu, noted that Ramadan is a period in which Muslims improve on their closeness to their creator and demonstrate love to their fellow human beings, adding that Nigerians should deliberately use the period to also supplicate to Allah to help stop bloodshed, insecurity, economic crisis and disunity in the country.

Saraki in a statement from his media office in Abuja noted that Easter represents the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for the benefit of mankind and that those who believe and follow his teachings must also accept the need for them to play positive roles in making the country and the world they live in safer, united and develop.
