Saraki’s Wife Ordeal Masterminded By Tinubu


The former Vice Chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator JKN Waku has accused the National Leader of the party, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu of masterminding the petition to the EFCC to probe the wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki.

The party chieftain explained that Tinubu is making use of his personal relationship with the EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, to embarrass and torment fellow party members as well as overheat the polity.

According to him, “I have chosen to speak out on this issue and make my findings on this issue known to the public. After days of painstaking enquiries, I discovered that both Tinubu and Lamorde maintain a mutually beneficial relationship since the days of Lamorde as the EFCC Director of Operations and based in Lagos between 2003 and 2007 when Tinubu was equally the governor of Lagos.”

The ACF member of Board of Trustees (BOT), also said: “I also discovered from my findings in EFCC that the so-called petition against Mrs Saraki was personally given to Lamorde by Tinubu under the guise that he was submitting the petition on behalf of the APC leadership to punish Saraki for working against the party’s leadership on the choice of National Assembly leaders.

“This was followed by a promise to help secure a second term for Lamorde as EFCC chairman.”

Waku said that the EFCC has been used by Tinubu as a dog to settle political scores like what occurred some years ago.

Waku said: “I want to use this opportunity to caution our leaders that no individual’s ambition to create a fiefdom for himself should be allowed to drag our party into unnecessary controversies and endlessly overheat the polity.

“The party has done its beat to send lawmakers to the National Assembly to work for the nation and no particular political party, and as such, they should allow our Senators and Reps members to settle down and work in the overall interest of the nation, which is far and above every other sectional interest.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had invited Mrs Saraki to questioning during the week which has fueled rumours that Tinubu might be behind the invite.
