For the first time in four years, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State and former Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki shook hands at the Ilorin Eid praying ground.

Many worshippers were surprised when the governor went to Saraki was and stretched out his hands.

The former number three man in the country reciprocated the gesture and both men exchanged warm greetings.

When the governor arrived at the praying ground, he headed straight to the section provided for him and sat down.

Moments later, he stood up and went straight to where Saraki was seated to greet him, and they both shook hands.

This attracted thunderous applause from worshippers at the VIP section, who stood up to catch a glimpse of the political leaders.

The governor then went ahead to greet other leaders, especially former PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje, an ally of Saraki.

Others at the eid praying ground included the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Moddibo Alfa Belgore.

After the drama, one of the organising committee members at the praying ground commended the governor for showing leadership.

Saraki, who is the Waziri of Ilorin, had arrived the praying ground earlier with his entourage and other dignitaries.

Saraki and Abdulrazaq, who are of different political parties, have been having a running battle.

The cold war between them rose to the peak when the state government demolished the popular Ile Arugbo belonging to Saraki’s late father and Second Republic Senate Leader, Senator Olusola Saraki.
