Kwara APC Kicks At Saraki's Wife Invitation By EFCC, Says Move Politically Motivated


The Kwara State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the invitation of the wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for interrogation as ill-timed and politically motivated.
The party also cautioned the anti-graft agency not to allow itself to be used by political gladiators for their selfish ends.
State Chairman of APC, Alhaji Ishola Balogun-Fulani, told reporters in Ilorin yesterday that the state capital that Kwara women might take to the streets in solidarity with their ‘mother.’
Balogun-Fulani said: “We as a party received the news of the invitation of the wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, as a shock. After five years of leaving office as the governor of Kwara State, it is now that the EFCC thought it necessary to invite the wife of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for questioning. Kwara APC thought the invitation is politically-motivated.
“Everybody is aware that the emergence of her husband as the Senate President did not go down well with some people. Her invitation is a way to throw mud on the person of the Senate President and the senate in general.
“It is also a political way of discrediting the person of Mrs. Saraki and her husband.
“Although we in the state would not ask the anti-graft agency not to do its lawful duties, it should be mindful of how it does it. I urge the EFCC not to politicize the invitation of Mrs. Saraki.
“We have to calm the nerves of Kwara women. Otherwise they would have been on the streets demonstrating against the malicious invitation by the agency. I want to appeal to EFCC to please tread softly not to ignite political turmoil in Kwara State, North-Central and Nigeria at large.
“The Senate is there for the whole of Nigeria and the Senate president is representing the whole of Nigeria. This too should be extended to the wife. The EFCC should not allow itself to be used by political gladiators.”
