Bukola Saraki acknowledges supporters in Ilorin on Saturday

Former senate president, Bukola Saraki returned to Ilorin, Kwara state on Saturday, into the warm embrace of his supporters.

The castaway senator had been on ‘exile’ of some sorts, since the crushing defeat of his Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election, by the All Progressives Congress.

His party lost the governorship poll and Saraki also lost his senate seat.

Saraki said he was in town to celebrate the 8th anniversary of his dad, Senator Olusola Saraki and also the 25th anniversary of Emir Sulu Gambari, the Ilorin monarch.

The huge crowd first received the former senate president at the Ilorin International Airport.

And it formed a guard of honour for him to the Emir’s palace.

After, he left to join prayers for his dad at the family’s GRA residence.

The Chief Imam of Ilorin, Alhaji Muhammad Bashir led the prayers.

Also present was his younger sister, Senator Gbemisola Saraki, who is the Minister of State for Transport.

“Hello, Kwara State! #HomeSweetHome”, Saraki tweeted on Saturday.
