Gbemi Saraki Still out of Social Scene

Date: 2016-10-29

Senator Gbemisola Saraki, daughter of the late strongman of Kwara politics, Dr. Olusola Saraki, and younger sister of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, is one woman that many would not find difficult to define. She was first elected into the House of Representatives in 1999 to represent Asa/Ilorin West Federal Constituency, Kwara State and was later elected to represent the People's Democratic Party in the Central Senatorial District of Kwara State in April 2003.

She contested for governorship election in the state in 2011 and 2014, but failed to make any meaningful impact. She also commands large grassroots followership because of her love for the poor and the lowly people in the society In addition to the foregoing, her great dress sense and beauty stand her out. For this and more, she had been a show-stopper at many events in the past.

However, it is doubtful if the former member of the National Assembly still commands the same attention and respect today. Initially, many had attributed this to the political war with her brother, Bukola over the control of Kwara State politics after the death of their father. But this has since been put to rest as she has since reconciled with him. She was even compensated with the position of Chairman, Governing Council of the Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa State.
