Govt officials loyal to Jonathan reinstated Maina – Presidency


The Presidency on Wednesday said some influential government officials loyal to the previous administration reinstated the wanted ex-chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said this in a statement made available to journalists.


What Shehu said:

  • Some influential officials loyal to Jonathan causes the scandal.
  • Everything will be uncovered soon.

He said, “Some influential officials loyal to the previous government may have been the invisible hand in the latest scandal that saw the return of Maina to the public service, despite being on the EFCC’s wanted list.

“Everything will be uncovered in due course. This just goes to show us the scale of corruption that this government is fighting. And, as we can all see, corruption keeps fighting back viciously.”

“Over and over again, President Buhari’s government has pointed out that the administration’s greatest problem is the mess left behind by the previous government. Maina is just one more example,” he added.

Shehu added that Maina was not the only PDP member involved in the pension fraud.

“Top officials in the PDP government, from sectoral heads to those charged with responsibility for law and order, received some of these billions of naira from Maina.

“We have all the transaction records and these are matters that the EFCC has been pursuing to ensure that they all have their day in court,” he said.
