Kwara State Commissioner for Enterprise, Hajia Arinola Lawal has reacted to the recent demolition of a decrepit public library owned by Ilorin West Local Government but named after the late Olushterola Saraki.
Arinola In a Statement Released and made available to newsmen in Ilorin commended the lIlorin West local government Transition Implementation Committee on its maturity and determination to renovate the library under and renamed it after late Olusola Saraki.
She said, “The rebuilding and expansion of the derelict library owned by the local government is very laudable, commendable and exemplary in the large-heartedness of the APC administration to retain the name of Saraki on the edifice.
This is more so when Senator Bukola Saraki and his late father did not extend such humanity and courtesy to my late father when they took over in 2003,” Hajia Arinola, who is a daughter of the late former Governor, said in a statement on Thursday.
“It could be recall that Saraki removed every government property named after late Governor Lawal when they took over power in 2003, pointing out that it is now irony of fate to hear the same person who embodies vindictiveness to want to bring down the roof just because the local government wanted to renovate a facility that belongs to the public.
“But one is glad to be alive to witness yet another history and even more significant to the course of history is the magnanimity of the APC administration not to toe that horrible path”, she added.
