Counsel to the former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pensions Reform, Abdulrasheed Maina, Mohammed Katu has said his client is still collecting salaries.
Reference: President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered the dismissal of Mr Maina from the civil service after the report of his reinstatement and promotion surfaced online.
Back to the matter: Speaking on Thursday when he appeared before the House of Representatives ad hoc committee probing Maina’s reinstatement, Mr Katu said Mr Maina is still working as a government official.
He said the Mr Maina was asked to treat 23 official files last month.
“Maina had to disappear because of the serious threats to his life,” Katu said.
“Maina is still receiving salaries. 23 files were sent to him in his capacity as acting director, even while he was absent. Maina has continued to work even after he was dismissed.”
One more thing: The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami said: “Maina was part of the syndicate that I must admit, he fell out with them and fled the shores of the country.”
He said at a meeting in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2016, Maina told him about the N3 billion which his committee recovered.
The chairman of the committee, Aliyu Madaki adjourned the hearing till Thursday.
