Saraki concedes defeat, congratulates winners

Nigeria’s senate president, Bukola Saraki, has conceded defeat after losing his reelection bid as the senator representing Kwara Central senatorial district.

“I wish the candidates that emerged in the Kwara polls all the best in their attempts to serve our people,” Saraki said on Tuesday.

“It is my prayer that the good people of Kwara State will always have the best from any government both at the state and federal levels,” he added.

Saraki lost to All Progressives Congress’s Ibrahim Yahya Oloriegbe.
