Senate President, Bukola Saraki has refuted claims that he is grooming his son to be the next governor of Kwara State.
Speaking in Abuja, the former Kwara State Governor said his son will not be contesting in the 2019 governorship election in the state because he is not interested in politics.
According to Saraki, “That is not in the offing at all; I am sure he doesn’t even want to hear politics at all.
“You know it is not easy for children who are born to politicians, especially in this time, to embrace politics.
“When I was much younger, we were insulated from some of the political issues, and because we didn’t read the newspapers, we didn’t know what was happening.
“I reluctantly went into politics, you can go and check. Once or twice, I was given the form to run for House of Representatives, and I remember I just travelled and disappeared for months.
“After seeing what my father had been through I thought to myself that this is not for me.”
