In his first comments since he lost the senatorial elections in Kwara, Senate President Bukola Saraki, has wished the successful candidates well.
Saraki, who failed in his attempt to become the presidential candidate for the People’s Democratic Party, wrote in a series of tweets that “it is my prayer that the good people of Kwara State will always have the best from any government”.
I wish the candidates that emerged in the Kwara polls all the best in their attempts to serve our people. It is my prayer that the good people of Kwara State will always have the best from any government both at the state and federal levels.
In a dramatic defection last year in July Mr Saraki left president Muhammadu Buhari’s APC party for the PDP. It looks the move may have backfired as Kwara heavily backed the APC.
Mr Saraki said that the result will “provide the people the opportunity to compare and contrast. After all, the people who have emerged from last Saturday’s election are not my enemies. They are fellow Kwarans.”
