The Senate President of the fourth republic of Nigeria, Senator Bukola Saraki is no doubt a record breaker by all standard. The strong man of Kwara politics has broken so many records and has finally crossed the Rubicon as World's Richest Senate President, this much National Enquirer can authoritatively reveal.
The silverspoon dude is holding the record for being the first person to wrestle power off his father and began to decide the politics of the Kwarans and not just that, he's the only heir apparent, till date, to eye his father's seat as Senate President, you would recalled that, Bukola's father, the late Oloye was the Senate Leader in the second republic and now, he's Senate President of the 8th Senate in the fourth republic.
Another point of interest that stands the fabulously rich politician out is his bravery and betraying antics to become the Senate President, without the approval of the ruling party that gave him the platform and even against all odds.
According to informed sources who has worked with the gangling man of style for many years, Bukola's children, Tosin, Seni, Teniola and Teniayo are allegedly said to be worth close to N800m in liquid cash while their mum, Toyin who's presently facing trial with the anti graft agency, EFCC is said to have piled a whopping N1.5b (one billion and five hundred million Naira only) in some banks, somewhere around the world.
