This, Saraki stated today in his reaction to the governor’s decision to revoke a land occupied by his family in Ilorin, the state capital.
Yesterday, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Rafiu Ajakaiye said the land originally was meant for government secretariat and parking space of a clinic
However, reacting in a statement personally signed by him, Saraki insisted the land was duly allocated and a Right of Occupancy title issued on it.
Saraki said: “It should be noted that the excuse given by Abdulrazaq in his revocation order holds no water since it is clear that this is the height of his vengeance against my father, Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki and I.
He noted that the action by the governor is clearly a manifestation of Vengeance, adding that in his ‘ Narrow-mindedness’, he believes his victory at the polls is empowerment, entitlement, and enablement to settle scores, provoke and pursue inter-family rivalry. They expected the development and fulfillment of promises.
Saraki said that Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq’s aim since he took over power is to wage war against my late father and I.
“He has demonstrated that his only competence and astuteness is in the area of viciously assailing the late Oloye Saraki and I. Definitely, he is a man with no sense of history. Enough is enough. Now, he has crossed the line”.
Saraki, however, called the governor’s attention to the fact that if his actions are against himself (Saraki) and his family, he is only deceiving himself.
“There is no basis for competition between us. Our paths cannot cross because of the status that he is struggling to attain, Almighty Allah has given it to me many years before now.
“With all his subterranean and open moves against my family, person, and property, I remain unmoved.
“However, his open antagonism against my late father and his legacies is unwarranted and will not be tolerated. He has definitely gone beyond bounds as he cannot be allowed to ride roughshod on the deceased. In this war against my late father, he will not win,” the statement read.
