The All Progressive Congress leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been accused of masterminding the travails of Saraki's wife, , EFCC.

In a report by The Punch on Sunday, July 26,2015, Senator Joseph Waku, a former Vice-Chairman and member, Board of Trustees of the Arewa Consultative Forum, alleged that the ruling party's National Leader allegedly masterminded the EFCC petition against the former first lady of Kwara State.

In a statement to journalists in Abuja on Saturday, July 25, 2015, Waku alleged that Tinubu allegedly used his personal relationship with the EFCC Chairman “to embarrass and torment fellow party members.”

In his words, 'I have chosen to speak out on this issue and make my findings on this issue known to the public. After days of painstaking enquiries, I discovered that both Tinubu and Lamorde maintain a mutually beneficial relationship since the days of Lamorde as the EFCC Director of Operations and based in Lagos between 2003 and 2007, when Tinubu was equally the Governor of Lagos.

'I also discovered from my findings in EFCC that the so-called petition against Mrs. Saraki was personally given to Lamorde by Tinubu under the guise that he was submitting the petition on behalf of the APC leadership to punish Saraki for working against the party’s leadership on the choice of National Assembly leaders. This was followed by a promise to help secure a second term for Lamorde as EFCC chairman.' he said.
