Kwara Senators-Elect speak from Abuja as they collect Certificate of Return



Senator-elect from Kwara Central into the 9th Senate, Dr. Ibrahim Oloriegbe, yesterday promised that his records of performance would surpass that of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who he defeated in the February 23 National Assembly election.

Speaking with journalists after collecting his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC in Abuja, Saraki did not even has record to be proud of in the last eight years as far as interests of the people of Kwara Central are concerned.

According to him, Saraki, despite attaining the position of Senate presidency as representative of his people, has not set any standard of performance for any successor to study let alone, meet.

He said Saraki, by his brand of politics and inordinate political ambition, focuses more on national politics and not responsive and quality representation for Kwara Central people who are his constituents.

“It is God that gives and takes power from whosoever he wishes, I thank the Almighty Allah for granting me the grace of being overwhelmingly elected as Senator for Kwara central in the coming 9th Senate.

“I have the pedigree of service to people and humanity as a trained Medical Doctor who has spent decades working with World Health Organization, WHO and years on the political field also in rendering selfless service to people and humanity.

“I was the majority leader of Kwara State House of Assembly from 1999 to 2003 under the late Governor Muhammed Alabi Lawal.

“My focus in the Senate will squarely be on how to by legislative engineering, quality and responsive representation, improve the lots of my people in Kwara Central and collaborate very effectively along with eight other federal lawmakers from the state with the state governor-elect, Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq in giving the state, new direction as regards wealth creation and genuine development”, he stressed.

His counterpart from Kwara South, Architect Lola Ashiru said the new set of elected political office holders in the state at whatever level, will collaborate together to give the greatest good to the greater number of Kwarans in months to come.

“We are aware of expectations on the ground and enormous challenges at hand but as people who are out to serve and not lord over electorates , Kwara will surely be better off with the change that had taken place in the state . We shall not disappoint Kwarans in anyway”, he said.

Also the Senator-elect from Kwara North, Umar Sadiq, said he has the strong conviction that marginalisation that has been the lots of the area in the past under successive governments, would be a thing of the past.
