BREAKING: Buhari orders immediate sack of wanted ex-pension boss, Maina

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the disengagement of wanted former chairman of the defunct Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina who was reabsorbed into the Civil Service.

What happened:

  • Maina was dismissed in 2013 by the Federal Civil Service Commission following a recommendation by the Office of the Head of Service.
  • He was accused of massive pension fraud scheme amounting to more than N100 billion.
  • Maina sued the Senate, after the upper chamber issued an arrest warrant against him.
  • Maina was dismissed by the Head of Service for allegedly absconding from duty and attempting to evade arrest and charged to court.
  • Reports recently emerged that Maina has returned to the country, now works with the government and has been promoted.

What is happening:

His media aide, Femi Adesina disclosed this via a tweet on Monday.

Confirming Maina’s disengagement, the presidency said Maina’s sack takes immediate effect.

The president also directed the Head of Service to submit a full report of the circumstances of Mr Maina’s recall and posting to the Ministry of Interior.
