Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his sister, Gbemisola, who is the Minister State for Transportation, have kicked against the demolition of a library erected in honour of their late father, Olusola Saraki, a former Senate Majority Leader and strongman of politics.

The siblings wondered why the State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, continued to demolish properties linked to their father.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Bukola wrote, “Just got the news that the major official assignment carried by the governor my state, Kwara, today, is the demolition of an old public library named after my late dad, Dr. Olusola Saraki. May Almighty Allah continue to retain a place for Oloye in Aljannah Firdaus.”

In her own post Facebook, Gbemisola, who is of the same party as the governor, said such demolitions must stop.

She wrote, “Yet again, today we find that the Governor of State’s focus is not building up Kwara, but on demolishing buildings which were owned or named after my late father, the Waziri of Ilorin.
“No matter how many structures are demolished, Baba Saraki’s legacy can never be destroyed, because it lives in the hearts and minds of the great people of Kwara. May Allah continue to guide and protect us all. Aamin.”

Last year, Abdulrazaq ordered the demolition of ‘Ile Arugbo’ — a building constructed by the late Saraki for the welfare of aged people in Ilorin.
