Senators belonging to the “Like Minds” group yesterday said they found the decision by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to invite the Senate President’s wife, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, in connection with an unknown investigation curious.
In a statement on their behalf, Senator Dino Melaye said they hoped that the invitation was not politically-motivated or linked with the leadership tussle in the Senate.
They added that the decision of the EFCC to invite Mrs. Saraki created a lot of coincidences, which any discerning mind would not want to ignore.
“Though, we do not want to make any hasty conclusion, we are surprised that about five years after the Sarakis left Government House, Ilorin, the EFCC suddenly realised the need to invite the wife. We hope this is not part of the plot we have heard about aimed at wrestling the Senate president down with different tactics.”
He added that members of the group would continue to watch developments around the invitation and would later make its position known to the public.
