We're not giving up on Saraki probe, EFCC says


The Economic and Financial Crim
es Commission (EFCC) yesterday said it won't backpedal on its present probe of the residency of Senate President Bukola Saraki when he was legislative leader of Kwara State from 2003 to 2011.

The counter join organization said it has a hallowed order to freed the nation of corruption, regardless of whose bull is gutted.

It said Saraki has no need to fret as long as he has no skeletons in his cupboard.

This was disclosed in a statement, which reads; “The EFCC has taken note of the reactions of Senate President Bukola Saraki to the commission’s inquiries regarding his earnings as Kwara State governor as well as on the quality of his financial stewardship in the Senate.
“While it is his prerogative to ventilate his views on the matter as he deems fit, the commission takes great exception at the desperate attempt to cast a slur on its investigative activities by portraying Saraki as a victim of persecution.

“Furthermore, the agency finds the attempt by the Senate President to tie our inquest to his International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) appointment and his approaching life out of power as misleading, knowing too well that the background to our current inquiries reaches several years back.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the EFCC is obligated by law to enthrone probity and accountability in the governance space and has supremely pursued this duty without ill-will or malice against anyone.

“It is in the interest of the public, and for Saraki’s personal good, that he is not only above board, but be seen at all times to be so.”
