OLUSOLA SARAKI, THE KIM JONG-IL OF KWARA STATE, NIGERIA!
In Kwara State, the North Korea of Nigeria, a Kim Jong-Il has finally emerged. His name is Olusola Saraki who has now converted the state into his personal fiefdom. His family is holding the entire state hostage to their peculiar brand of political power play which favors the Saraki-Family alone. His daughter is following soon after his soon to be termed out son as the next uncontested governor of Kwara State. Icheoku asks when will this 'dynasty' end alongside their occupation of the government house in Ilorin? Icheoku also wonders if all the men in Kwara State have been castrated with none with any balls left to stand against this Saraki's anti-democratic arrant nonsense. if he purchased Kwara State as a his private property, Icheoku wants to see the deed of purchase as well as the purchase receipt?The Saraki family has by this novelty, introduced an alien brand of government known as "Familocracy" - government of the family by the family and for the family; with the citizens of the state as ordinary serfs, not good enough to rule or preside over their own destiny. The Saraki family appears to tell Kwarans that they cannot manage their own affairs by themselves and that their Allah-sent, all-knowing Sarakis, are there to help do it for them? Icheoku says what would Nigerian men of power not do simply because they can!
