Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has said he does not know if President Muhammadu Buhari was involved in the reinstatement of former pension boss, Abdulrashed Maina.
Maina, who was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was discovered to have been reinstated into the civil service.
In a leaked memo, head of service, Winifred Oyo-Ita had said the President was aware, stating that she warned him.
While speaking in an interview with Osasu Igbinedion on The Osasu Show, Adesina said until Oyo-Ita openly declares that she wrote the memo, it does not stand.
“The head of service to the best of my knowledge has not come out to own that memo allegedly published and credited to her. Until she owns it and say this memo is from me, then I can comment on it,” Adesina said.
Asked if Buhari ordered the reinstatement as the leaked memo suggests, he said, “it is those who did the reinstatement who can answer that question, not me. Those involved and those mentioned- federal civil service, head of service, and attorney general of the federation. I think you should rather pose that question to them.”
