Success is not for the frail-hearted, it is a result of unwavering determination. He is one of the stand-out performers of first term cabinet of the Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed-led administration in Kwara State. While many sniggered and smirked when he was appointed the Special Adviser to the Governor on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Ope proved himself to be as efficient as they come. He had earlier served as the Special Adviser on Students and then Special Adviser on Local Governments when Dr. Bukola Saraki held sway as governor.Those who should know told us that he was among those who made Governor Ahmed very proud of his accomplishments in his first term as he superintended the laudable projects and programmes of the state MDGs. During the just concluded elections, he was also very visible and productive as he campaigned tirelessly for both Gen. Mohammadu Buhari and Governor Ahmed, securing outright victories for them in his Ajikobi and Adewole wards, Ilorin-West Local Government Area, in spite of opposition from PDP heavyweights like billionaire Hajia Bola Sagaya and the incumbent Minister of National Planning, Dr Abubakar Suleiman. A prominent member of the Saraki dynasty, Ope is fast perfecting his skills in the art of politics and has endeared himself to the grassroots through his humble and philanthropic ways. This gentle giant was a victim of a malicious campaign recently due to the Saraki political dynasty’s opposition to the re election of President Goodluck Jonathan. The young and vibrant Saraki has been able to raise his head above all waters and we are closely following this amiable and charismatic future leader as he coasts he way in the Nigeria political scene.
