The Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s family has cornered Kwara State’s commonwealth in the past 40 years, alleged Lai Mohammed.
Mohammed, who is the minister of information and culture, made the allegation on Thursday in Ilorin at a ceremony organised by the Kwara All Progressives Congress (APC).
While claiming that the Saraki dynasty in Kwara had rendered the quality of life of the people to the lowest point, the minister said: “The main issues here have to do with how our state has been governed in the past 50 years, 40 of which have been dominated by a single family.
“What has happened to the commonwealth, which has been cornered by a single dynasty at the expense of the people.
“Where are the roads and other infrastructure to justify the huge resources that have accrued to the state?
“If you follow a path for so long, and it leads you nowhere, won’t you try another path? These are the issues.”
He vowed that some of Saraki’s loyalist holding federal executive positions will soon be shown the way out.
“Some of the people they nominated to the boards of government’s agencies and parastatals are still there, yet they claim that Kwara has not benefited from this federal government,” the minister said.
“These people, some of whom are holding executive positions, will soon be shown the way out.”
