From: Oluseyi Dasilva, Ilorin
A renowned Islamic preacher, Sheik Usman Sannu Shehu, has declared that it is the turn of Ilorin to produce Nigeria’s President.
Shehu declared that the Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has been destined to be Nigeria’s president, urging all genuine sons and daughters of Ilorin to pray and work for the actualisation of Saraki’s Presidential ambition.
Shehu who spoke at the closing ceremony of the free summer lesson organized by Tajudeen Olesin Foundation at the Government Day Secondary School, Ilorin, added that the progenitors of Ilorin had prayed to have their son as President of Nigeria some day and that this will come to pass.
He therefore cautioned all those that had benefited from Saraki political dynasty to stop working against the interest of Bukola Saraki, insisting that “It is only the Ilorin bastards that will not support Saraki’s Presidential aspirations.”
“Ilorin has been liberated and no Ilorin son or daughter should sell Ilorin into slavery again to Lagos politician in the name of playing politics.
“During our investigation, we discovered that those opposing Saraki, especially those from Ilorin are doing it for selfish reasons.
“What some of them complained about is that Saraki did not give me a particular position or that he favoured someone above me in a contest for certain political offices.”
The Cleric, while appealing to sons and daughters of Ilorin descent, irrespective of political affiliations, to ensure the emergence of Saraki as the next President of Nigeria, declared “Saraki’s presidency will translate to unprecedented development for Ilorin, in particular and Kwara in general.”
