Late Olusola Saraki, a political gladiator of his time until he died in 2012 was one of the father of politics in Nigeria and a former senator.
Bukola Saraki,who has kept a low profile since his defeat in last year senatorial election in the state stormed the state today.
The two-term former governor of Kwara State and a former Senate president maintained low profile after the opposition took over power in Kwara State,his stronghold.
Despite being out of power, Bukola Saraki’s popularity has not reduced as he is still one of the gladiators in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party,PDP.
It is still unknown whether the PDP chieftain will be vying for political post in 2023 after his attempt to win the party presidential ticket in 2019 before he stopped down for Atiku Abubakar,the eventual flagbearer of the opposition party.
