The much reported ambition of the highly prized Second Republic Senator, Dr Olusola Saraki, to have a hand in who becomes the next governor of the state is gradually materialising.
Saraki, who is also the Chairman of the Northern Union, is believed to have already anointed his daughter and a serving Senator, Gbemisola, to take over from his son and present governor of the state, Bukola, in 2011.
...
Senator Gemisola Saraki remains the only credible, worthy and acceptable choice."
...
Saraki, it will be recalled, had repeatedly said that it was too early to begin to discuss elections when he still had some time to go, adding that the political cohesion in the state did not warrant the usual noise making experienced in other states.
Saraki’s push for leaner government
www.yusufali.net, 19 June 2011 [cached]
Saraki, who was recently inaugurated as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, made news commenting on two issues of national importance. First, he had stated at his state capital Ilorin, that the cost of governance at the Federal Government level had been outrageously high insisting that time had come for something to be done about it.
...
Saraki, being a former governor, should know better. And if he is availing the country the benefit of his hindsight, many believe that he should be applauded.
...
Saraki, whose birthday is December 19, was born 49 years ago to the family of Kwara State political kingmaker, Dr. Olusola Saraki. He attended the prestigious King's College in Lagos from 1973 to 1978 and Cheltanham College in London from 1979 to 1981.
His university education was at the University of London where he studied Medicine from 1982 to 1987. He worked briefly as Medical Officer at Rush Green Hospital in London from 1988 to 1989. He also worked as a Senior Casualty Officer at Royal Free Hospital, London, before returning to Nigeria to work in one of his father's companies, Societe Generale Bank(Nig) Limited as Executive Director from 1990 to 2000.

Dr. Olusola Saraki, fondly called 'Oloye' by President Obasanjo has managed the unprecedented feat of installing his son as Governor of Kwara Sate while simultaneously securing a seat in the Senate for his daughter. The anti corruption axe has not swung his way because of his closeness to President Obasanjo, while Bulama is suffering because he was a member of the rival All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP).

I want to ignore, for now, the unprecedented embarrassment Nigeria suffered on its 50th anniversary in the hands of some sons of a dog, and hail Olusola Saraki, the strongman of Kwara politics. Saraki is a medical doctor. But it is doubtful if he had ever taken the practice of medicine seriously. I don't remember any hospital where he had been a proprietor. I don't remember him talking medicine. He put away his stesthocope, and embraced politics. He talks politics, eats politics, and breathes politics. And what a lucrative career he has made of it. In the Second Republic, Saraki was the Senate Leader. And if the military had not struck, he probably would have risen to become the Senate President. Once, he had toyed with the idea of becoming the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But the cards didn't add up. Using politics, he became an emperor in Kwara.
...
All elected politicians in Kwara, almost, and even political appointees, owe their positions to Saraki. How did a man, who some months ago, in an interview, traced his ancestry to outside Nigeria, acquire so much power? How come he holds the knife, and the yam, politically, in Kwara state? How did he build such a formidable political empire that nobody dares challenge him? Really, not a few people had challenged him.
...
At no other time did Olusola Saraki prove to Kwarans that they don't matter, that Kwara is his father's farmland, his inheritance, than in 2003 when he installed his son,Bukola as governor of the state. Now in his second term as governor, Bukola Saraki is aspiring to be the President of Nigeria, come 2011. Until recently, he was chairman of the Nigerian Governors' Forum, a body which influence exposed him to so much power and contacts that he is banking on it to propel him to the presidency. Like his father, Bukola is a medical doctor. And like his father, he didn't make any headway in medicine. He got involved in the family business, rising to the position of Executive Director of the family's bank, Societe Generale. The strong allegation is that even though he was not the Managing Director of the bank, he was the one who called the shots.
