Kwara revokes Ex-Senate President Saraki’s acquisition of chalet built by state government

Ex-Senate President Bukola Saraki

A four-bedroomed government chalet which was acquired by Ex-Senate President Bukola Saraki has been revoked by the Kwara State House of Assembly.

According to the lawmakers, the revocation was due to the non-compliance with the provision of Pensions Law 2010. They voided the acquisition, valuation and certification of land title of the chalet.

Yakubu Danladi, the Speaker of the House, noted that the revocation was to ensure an end to all forms of illegalities and abnormalities in the state.

The lawmakers further urged the Kwara State Government to use all available legal process to recover the chalet from Saraki who was a former governor of the state.

The decision to revoke Saraki’s property came following the presentation of a report by the House Committee on Lands, Housing and Urban Development.

Omotayo Awodiji, the Chairman of the Committee, who presented the report, noted that among other things, the Alimi Chalet was built by the Kwara State Government as a guest chalet for governors and not transferable to anyone.
