SarakiSenators who are members of the group called ‘Like Minds’ have described as curious, the decision of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to invite the wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki, in connection with an unknown investigation.

The senators, in a statement signed by Senator Dino Melaye, stated that they hoped that the invitation of Mrs Saraki was not politically motivated or linked with the ongoing leadership tussle in the Senate.

The lawmakers stated that although they did not want to make any hasty conclusion, they were surprised that about five years after Senator Saraki left the Kwara State Government House, the EFCC suddenly realized the need to invite the wife for questioning.

They urged the EFCC to perform its lawful duties but warned that it should not return to the dark days when the anti-graft agency was frequently and flagrantly used as a political weapon.
