LAGOS: FORMER Kwara State Governor has not been petitioned or declared wanted by the country’s anticorruption agencies, his office said on Thursday.
“Senator Saraki’s office will like to assure Nigerians that he has no case with SFU (Special Fraud Unit), EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) or any other agencies that GEJ (President Goodluck Jonathan) has been using to oppress opposition.
He has not been declared wanted and he will continue to campaign to enlighten Nigerians on the urgent need to change this unserious government,” Bamikole Omisore, his spokesperson said in a statement.
Omisore said government was victimizing the former Kwara State governor for exposing rampant corruption.
“Bukola Saraki’s many sins to President Jonathan and his cohort emanated from the fuel subsidy scam he exposed on the floor of senate in 2011 which has cost our dear country over 8 trillion naira not to talk of another 30 Trillion that was recently exposed by Sulodo.”
Omisore said ever since Saraki exposed the fraud in the fuel subsidy scheme perpetuated by people within President Jonathan’s camp, he had been invited numerous times to assist the Nigerian police with investigations relating to his personal accounts, company accounts then domiciliary account.
Subsequently, an indept investigation was carried out and a written report was sent by Special Fraud Unit of The Nigerian Police Force by the Attorney General of federation stating that from the report submitted by SFU, Saraki was exonerated of any wrong doing, his spokesperson added.
“Collectively, Nigerians should tackle corruption and this can only be achieved with all form of seriousness, Nigeria has experience corruption at its peak under the watch of President Goodluck Jonathan, worst of it all is that this administration is ready to bring down whoever want to be of help in really tackling corruption in Nigeria,” Omisore concluded.
