Publisher of Sahara Reporter and 2019 Presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore has vowed to liberate Kwara state by sending the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to jail.
Sowore made this comment on Friday when he visited Illorin, the state capital for a town hall meeting. He pointed out that Saraki had turned himself to a ‘Demi-god’ in the state. He said;
“We will ensure that Kwara state is liberated from the hand of a political godfather who can’t build good roads, schools and infrastructures. I remember last year, this was the same political godfather, Bukola Saraki, that seized our money, that was meant for the SaharaReporters Civic Media Lab, and brought it to Kwara state.
This same Saraki went to the court to stop us and sent thugs to beat us after bragging he has all the Judges in Kwara state in his pocket.
Let me use this opportunity to tell him that the money he seized from us would be refunded soon and will be paid with interest while he goes to jail.”
Sowore further criticized the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC urging the people to vote against the party.
According to him, by 2019, “It will no longer be sai Baba but sai Bobo. By next year, we are taking back this country from the hands of the old guards and we would ensure we set its feet on the path of progress” he said.
“Then, it will no longer be sai Baba but sai Bobo because the country would not be left again in the hands of untrustworthy elders and leaders who have taken us back. We are tired of the old people in all the regions of the country mostly the ones who still think in analogue ways and have nothing to offer us.”
