It is with a heavy heart, that on behalf of our great Party, I mourn the transition to eternal glory of one of our distinguished founding leaders, the late Senator (Dr) Olusola Saraki, Wazirin Ilorin.
He was a great Nigerian and a committed democrat of outstanding convictions. In the formative stages of our great Party, he played a resilient pioneering role which helped us build a great Party. He was a consensus builder whose warm disposition to all, advanced peace and harmony among our members. By his death, we have lost a tireless pathfinder and a timeless fence mender.
I urge the members of his family and indeed the people of Kwara State to take heart for the good deeds of the late Wazirin Ilorin do not die. Surely, they will remain ever green in the hearts of our people.
May his gentle soul, find eternal repose in God’s bossom.
Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu
