The Kwara state government has demolished Senator Bukola Saraki family propert, “Ile Arugbo.”
The AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq-led Kwara government has on Thursday demolished Bukola Saraki’s family property “Ile Arugbo” (old people’s home) built on land which ownership was recently revoked by the state.
The Kwara state government has earlier stated that it will build a secretariat on the site after it recovered it.
According to report, there were about 50 policemen on stand-by during the demolition process.
Recall that Saraki in a statement accused AbdulRazaq of using his office to allegedly erase the legacies of his late father, Abubakar Olusola Saraki, who was a former governor of the state.
Saraki, however, said the government’s action was clearly a manifestation of vengeance which shows that the AbdulRazaq 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 an empowerment, entitlement and enablement to settle scores, provoke and pursue inter-family rivalry,” Saraki said.
