The House of Representatives has ordered the economic and financial crimes commission, EFCC, to arrest and prosecute the former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.
The November 7 letter was in line with the House’s resolution of October 24.
In the letter, the House urged EFCC to “immediately arrest the former Chairman of Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, for prosecution in order to serve as a deterrent to others who might have corrupt tendencies.”
“The House of Representatives has already constituted an Ad-Hoc Committee charged with the responsibility of investigating the circumstances surrounding the re-surfacing, re-absorbing and subsequent elevation of Abdulrasheed Maina from the rank of Assistant Director (the position he held before he was removed in 2013, to the position of an Acting Director) and to recommend strong sanctions against any person or persons who are implicated in the scandal.”
Maina, who entered into the country few months ago was shockingly reabsorbed into the civil service and promoted to acting director despite being on the wanted list of the EFCC.
