The Nigeria Immigration Service on Thursday said former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdurasheed Maina has not left Nigeria since 2013.
Comptroller-General of the NIS, Mohammed Babandede, disclosed this on Thursday when he appeared before a House of Representatives panel probing the reinstatement of Maina.
He, however stated that the service later discovered that Maina has three passports.
He said, “We got to know about Maina on September 27, 2013 when he was going out of the country through the MMIA.
“He has three passports. The first one was an official one, expired not renewed. His current passport is valid till 2018. He also has a valid US passport to expire 26 August 2020.
“During our checks, we discovered that Maina has travelled many times. He was stopped because of an EFCC letter.
“In December 2015, we received a letter from the EFCC to remove his name from the ‘stop list.’ But after the President’s directive, we blocked his name on the passport.
“So, according to our records, he hasn’t been travelling since 2013.”
