FG names Gbemi Saraki Chairman of Federal University, Otuoke

Date: 2016-02-14

The sister of embattled Senate President, Senator Gbemi Saraki has been named Chairman of the Governing Council of Federal University, Otuoke. She is in the list of appointees to the twelve federal universities recently released by the Federal Government.

Federal University, Otuoke is among the twelve new universities established by the immediate past regime.

Gbemisola Saraki and the incumbent Senate President, Bukola, the two most popular children of the late strongman of Ilorin politics, the late Olusola Saraki, have a long history of animosity that was resolved by the Emir of Ilorin, Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari.

The bickering is traced to 2006 when Bukola declined to support their father's proposal to get Gbemisola to succeed him as governor of Kwara State. Gbemi, who was a Senator on the platform of People's Democratic Party (PDP), defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC) shortly before the 2015 general elections.

She had then directed supporters in the 16 local government areas of the state to vote en-mass for the APC, citing the failure of the PDP to respect the place of women in politics.

"After wide consultations, we found in APC a platform that mirrors the ideals of our political family, both in content and context, especially with under the leadership of General Muhammadu Buhari.

"We are assured in the promise of the APC for a new Nigeria. We are confident in the commitment of the President to social justice, rule of law and economic posterity for all.

"I therefore call on all my supporters from across the state to take what we have started a notch further by going out to register with the All Progressives Congress (APC), and to work actively for a resounding success of the APC in the forthcoming polls.
