Why I followed Toyin Saraki to EFCC’s office – Senator Dino Melaye

Toyin-SarakiSenator Dino Melaye has defended his visit to the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in the company of the wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki.

The lawmaker, who represents Kogi West Senatorial zone in the Senate, said in a press statement, in Abuja, that his explanation became necessary, following the barrage of attacks and criticisms he had so far received from his “brothers, sisters and fellow citizens” since Tuesday, when he was sighted accompanying Mrs Saraki to the headquarters of the commission in Abuja.

In a statement titled: “Stand Up For What You Believe In,” and issued on Friday in Abuja, Melaye said he has made sacrifices for the country and had survived assassination attempts.

He said: “The invitation of Mrs. Toyin Saraki by the EFCC, however, is not a criminal indictment. I will not abandon my friend because of mere EFCC invitation. I also went there as a private investigator and an anti-corruption crusader to find out the extent of culpability of my sister and friend since she was not told the content of the petition against her before her appearance before the EFCC.

“My definition for friendship is he or she who walks in when others are walking out. If my father is invited by the EFCC, I will go there; if a prima face case is established against him, I will shout for his prosecution. So my great people, I have no regrets following my friend and sister to the EFCC. If you are my friend, you are my friend. I cannot control what my friends will do, but they remain my friends. I am not fighting corruption out of passion only, but because it is the Godly thing to do.”
