She is still reveling in the euphoria of her attaining the age of 52 weeks back, which she doesn’t really look, going by her physical demeanour. Ilorin, Kwara State-born Sen. Gbemi Saraki still looks radiant and disarmingly beautiful, despite her very demanding schedule as a politician and unassumingly quiet business vocation. The hazel-eyed and robust-looking lady and younger sister of Senate President Bukola Saraki has not allowed the intrigues in the deep water of politics to dissuade her from taking good care of her natural self much to be amazement of the opposite sex who are never tired of commenting on her rich taste for things that have to do with natural endowment. At 52, the elegant and ever graceful, but definitely not ageing Gbemi is not leaving anyone in doubt about her status in the political math of the nation and definitely not at the expense of her aura as a beauty personified. She reminisced on her life during her recently celebrated low-key birthday. GRS as she is fondly addressed by her admirers took the opportunity of her birthday to pen her reflections about life, thus: “that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.
that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it; that it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be; that either you control your attitude or it controls you; that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place; that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up; that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have; that your family won’t always be there for you. It may seem funny, how people you aren’t related to can take care of you and love you and teach you to trust people again. Families aren’t always biological; that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become; that you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
