Bukola Saraki from 2015 to 2019 served as one of Nigeria’s top 10 political leaders. He was appointed the Senate President of the National Assembly despite significant corruption allegations against him from previous terms. Bukola Saraki’s family has been deeply rooted in Nigerian politics for several decades. His sister, Gbemisola Saraki, is also a Senator. In 2018, Bukola Saraki abandoned his personal presidential ambitions to join the ‘Atiku Abubakar for President’ campaign team.

Kwarans (indigens of Kwara State Nigeria) began an #otoge movement which means ‘enough is enough’ as they sought to throw out the likes of Saraki from Kwara state leadership. After the elections on February 23rd, 2019, several citizens barred Bukola Saraki from driving out, calling him hateful names such as “thief” as they constantly yelled “otoge”. The election results are gradually being released by Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and it seems Saraki has officially lost his Senate seat to APC.
