Continue To Work Towards Repositioning PDP, Saraki Tells Arapaja

Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has left the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, after the anti-graft agency invited him for questioning.

The former Governor of Kwara State in a statement released through his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, noted that he was invited by the anti-graft agency.

Saraki disclosed that on his own volition he visited the office of the EFCC to clarify any issue that the commission may want to raise with him.

The statement reads, “It will be recalled that following the order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on the Fundamental Human Rights case filed by Dr Saraki during the period of the former chairman of the EFCC which precluded the commission from investigating him until the matter is dispensed with, the commission at the last hearing on July 14, 2021, pleaded with the judge that the order was preventing them from doing their job.”

“Following this complaint, Dr Saraki, as a responsible citizen, on his own volition approached the commission that at the earliest convenient date, he was willing to visit the commission’s office and clarify all issues they might want to raise with him.”

“He, therefore, visited the commission’s office this afternoon and answered some questions. He is back home. He was not arrested. Dr Saraki also assured the commission that he has nothing to hide and will always make himself available to clear all issues that may require his attention.”
