Younger sister to the Senate President, Senator Gbemi Saraki, has shown that she is not in her brother’s camp.
Just some hours after her brother, Bukola defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, Gbemi, who was a Senator for four years before her brother won the Kwara Central Senatorial district seat at the Senate, showed support for President Buhari and the All Progressives Party.
She said in a statement which she also put up her campaign poster for the Kwara Central seat:
“I maintain my unwavering support for President Muhammadu Buhari, now and for his re-election in 2019, and for the success of our party, the APC, in Kwara State and across the federation.
All members of my political organisations including GRS Movement (GRSM); GRS Foundation (GRSF); GRS Friends on Facebook (GRSFOF); Paramount Women Forum (PWF) and GRS Grassroots Youth Movement (GRS-GYM) will begin to implement the first phase of our “Get-Out-The-Vote” for PMB and APC.
Politics is a public service to the people and we ought to conduct it with dignity, peace and love for our fellow citizens.
May Allah grant us direction, guidance and restraint in our utterances and conduct.”
