Bukola Saraki Gave His Sister 2 Hours To Leave Ilorin In Her Own Interest In 2007.
Gov Bukola Saraki’S half Sister Oyinkansola has spoken of how her visit to him in government house Ilorin some yeas ago ended dramatically with the governor walking her out and giving her 2 hours to leave Ilorin in her own interest.
“I met him before I decided to contest. Before, I was not interested in contesting. I came to Nigeria. I spoke to him. I saw him at the government house. I was to see him at 9’ o clock actually; but he didn’t see me until 3’o clock; though he was very busy that day. I saw him and we had a chat. And he just looked at me and said, is that what you come to say, and I said yes. That was 3’o clock in the afternoon. He looked at his watch.
He called his P.A, and said, can you escort my sister out here. And I give you still 5’o clock to leave Kwara State, or I don’t guarantee your safety. That was his exact words. Even at that, I didn’t leave. I am as stubborn as he is.
I visited the Commissioner for Women Affairs and a few of his commissioners to speak to them. I said, even if my brother is not doing things, try and do the right thing. But I didn’t succeed anyway. So, I left.
Fighting from the flanks
“Truly speaking, when you look at it from the outside, you’ll ask, why is it this family all the time? It looks like that but I am not on their side. I mean, if you read the papers, they have disowned me. Bukola came out publicly to say, I am not Saraki’s daughter; I’m a bastard; all because of all this. It is very painful when someone comes up to say oh, I am a name dropper. All because I am fighting this cause. It is a shameful thing.
