Bukola-Saraki-The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has allowed former Governor of Kwara State, Dr. Bukola Saraki to go home and report back in the first week of September.

Saraki, who was at the commission’s office on Monday to honour its invitation and explain his alleged involvement in fraud-related matters during his tenure as an executive director of the defunct Societe Generale Bank Nigeria Limited (SGBN), was released on Tuesday on health grounds.

Meanwhile, the Head of Media and Publicity for EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, has denied an online report that Saraki was quizzed by the anti-graft agency over a purported N100 million he was receiving as monthly pension from the Kwara State Government.

“I can confirm to you that I am not aware of anything like that report by the Sahara Reporters as part of the complaints against the senator; but the finding would be made public where and when necessary,” he said.

Uwujaren also confirmed that Saraki honoured the EFCC invitation extended to him two weeks ago and had been cooperating with operatives on his time as an executive director at SGBN.

The EFCC spokesman also confirmed that Saraki had been offering explanations on financial matters when he was the executive governor of Kwara for eight years.

According to Uwujaren, “Inviting present and past public office holders is a normal routine for them to make clarification on issues that may be raised against them. So there is nothing so strange in it.”
