I made only 5% of my wealth from politics - Saraki | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Senate President Bukola Saraki has told the BBC Hausa service that he acquired only 5 per cent of his wealth when he entered into politics.

Saraki, who is currently under investigation by the federal authorities over allegations of falsely declaring assets when he was Governor of Kwara State said acquired 95 per cent of his wealth before he entered politics.

He acknowledged that there was corruption in the country, but said his wealth was a result of coming from a blessed family and hard work.

He said he was confident that he would be cleared of the charges against him and he would continue to serve in public office.

The senator also said he had not evaded tax – an accusation highlighted in the Panama Papers because it was a legal firm that established the company on their behalf.
