Former Senator Joseph Waku has alleged it was Asiwaju Bola Tinubu that sent the EFCC after Bukola Saraki’s wife, Toyin Saraki.
According to Waku, Tinubu promised EFCC chairman Ibrahim Lamorde help in securing a second term in exchange for investigating Mrs. Saraki.
Waku claimed Tinubu was using his personal relationship with the EFCC Chairman to embarrass and torment fellow party members, describing it as unfortunate.
“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,” Waku said in a statement.
“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.”
