Date: 2024-04-24

Former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki,yesterday described the death of the immediate past Senator representing Kwara South senatorial district of Kwara State, Rafiu Ibrahim, as a huge loss to him, Kwara and the nation in general.

Saraki said, “We cannot question God, the ultimate. His death is disheartening but we take consolation in the fact that he lived a good life.”

Speaking at the grave side of the deceased at the Ilorin Muslim Cemetery, Saraki also said his death was a personal loss to him.

He eulogised him as an exemplary leader, a loyal political associate, a worthy friend, and one of the finest legislators Kwara ever had.

At the burial ground, Alhaji Kawu Baraje, led the prayer for the deceased and the generality of the Muslim souls at the ground and equally prayed to God to uphold Saraki and the political family.

Saraki, who was accompanied by other dignitaries, thereafter moved to the Ilorin residence of his the senator to commiserate with the family over his death.

Saraki, who was received by the wives, children, and siblings of the deceased, expressed sadness over the loss but admonished the family to be strong and take it as an act of Allah.

The former Senate President, who was moved to tears at the deceased’s residence, recalled some memorable moments – a testament to the depth of his friendship with the late Ojoku-born financial expert.

“Late Senator Ibrahim was always loyal, committed, and quietly tenacious in achieving his objectives and goals. It’s a personal loss for me just as many others.

“Always just a phone call away and always ready to act for the greater good. Rafiu endeared himself to many, both within and outside Kwara State. He was known for always lending a hand, supporting initiatives, and empowering the people.

“It’s a huge loss to Kwara, but we cannot question God, the ultimate. His death is disheartening but we take consolation in the fact that he lived a good life,” he said.
