Kwara state government has denies been responsible for demolition of library name after late Saraki Saraki.
The CPS to the Kwara state Governor said “he just spoken with the Ministry of Works under which control town planning department and they clearly have nothing to do with it.
He noted that the state government has nothing to do with it
I have also placed a call thru to the Hon Com for LG/Chieftaincy Affairs/Community Devt who then patched me thru to the Ilorin West TIC Chair.
The chairman made the following clarifications:
The facility is dilapidated and was serving as hideouts for some anti-social elements with consequences for public safety.
The community appealed to the local government authorities to do something about it.
The local government has moved in to remove parts of it preparatory to rehabilitating the facility by adding an ICT centre for public use. After its reconstruction, it should retain the honorary name of Baba Saraki
CLARIFICATION the facility, to be clear, does not belong to Baba Saraki. It is the property of Ilorin West local government named after Oloye. The owner is set to renovate it.
No cause for alarm, pls. The owner is fixing its property. And it will retain the honorary name earlier given to it after renovation. – CPS to the Governor
Formal two term Kwara state governor and former Senate president of Eight National Assembly Dr. Senator Bukola Saraki while reacting to the demolition he wrote
“Wow. I just got the news that the major official assignment carried out by the Governor of 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”
Likewise, Minister of state for Transportation Senator Gbemisola Rukayat Saraki while reacting she wrote
“Yet again, today we find that the Governor of Kwara State’s focus is not on 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. She wrote
