The Senate President Bukola Saraki yesterday night travelled to Saudi Arabia to join millions of Muslim faithful gathered in the Holy Land for this year’s Hajj.

A statement by his special adviser on media and publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said Mr. Saraki would also use the opportunity to pray for the health of President Muhammadu Buhari as well as the unity, stability, and development of Nigeria.

“He will spend the period of the holy pilgrimage to pray for more success for the Eighth National Assembly in the execution of its legislative agenda which is aimed at helping to improve the standard of living of the citizenry and positively transform the national economy,” the statement added.

The senate president is expected back early September when the Hajj is expected to have been completed by pilgrims.

          What are you doing in England? Go and do hajj with your fellow Mohammedans and see whether the devil will not stone you back. Terrorist

          • Are you thinking of sending me to UK?

  • truth

    We don’t trust that prayer. Buhari is already under Allah’s protection.

    Bull shit! Saraki should first pray for himself, confess and make restitution. Then he can begin to pray for others! Saraki should remove the p,Anke over his eyes first than he would be able to see clearly to remove the specks in others eyes ! When this evil senate president gets to Saudi, he will find that electricity works 24/7, water runs, ac works, roads work, commuting is a lot lot lit easy compared with the zoo where he parades himself as a lord! Black man backward mentality!

    I WISH I KNOW HOW ALLAH WORKS! ….how can this rogue brags about perform hajj after numerous hajj/umrah with public funds looted? why would someone who practically stolen kwara state government funds perform hajj without blemish? shouldn’t he come back with one leg missing? Majority of these thieves will loot public funds and head for hajj …..and who will ever trust any prayer from saraki? Ogologo olee and baba alawo…

    • … back with one leg and one eye missing.
