Bukola Saraki is the Waziri of Ilorin.

The Emir of Ilorin and chairman, Kwara State Traditional Council, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu -Gambari, yesterday elevated the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki to the position of Waziri Garin of Ilorin, the Traditional Prime Minister of the emirate.

The monarch also ordered prayers for divine guidance to enable Dr Bukola Saraki take correct decision at this critical moment of his political life.

The elevation which came as a surprise to the Senate President, was announced at the end of a special prayer organised by the Emir on the recent victory of Saraki at the Supreme Court over allegations of false asset declaration.

By the elevation, Saraki who is also Turakin Ilorin becomes the fourth Waziri Garin, succeeding his father, the late Dr. Olusola Saraki who held the title until his demise in 2012.

The Emir said it was in acknowledgement of the Senate President's passion for the development of not only the emirate but the whole of Kwara as well as his political exploits that have brought fame to the state, particularly Ilorin Emirate.

Sulu- Gambari said: "We are excited by your political exploits because of late you have become the beautiful bride whom politicians across the board are beckoning to be in their camps. This is a show of recognition of your worth." and achievements as a politician."
