A former Senate Majority Leader and Waziri of Ilorin, Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki, is dead.
Details of his death were still sketchy as at press time, but it was learnt Saraki died in his Lagos home on Wednesday morning.
Saraki, the Senate Majority Leader in the Second Republic, has been in and out of hospitals in the last few years owing to symptoms associated with old age.
He was born on May 17, 1933 and has had very active political life.
His son, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, was a governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011.
The younger Saraki is now in the Senate.
