A former senate president, Bukola Saraki, has vowed to contest the revocation of his late father’s property by the Kwara State Government.
He described the act as a deliberate effort of the state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, to erase the legacies of his (Saraki’s) late father, Olusola Saraki.
The chief press secretary to the governor, Rafiu Ajakaiye, had on Friday announced the take over of a piece of land occupied by the Saraki family in Ilorin, the state capital. He said a new secretariat would be built on the land.
Mr Ajakaiye said the land was originally meant for government secretariat and parking space of the Civil Service Clinic, but was unlawfully allocated to a private firm, Asa Investments Limited, without any record of payment to the state government.
