Abdulrasheed Maina

The Federal Government has given more reasons President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the disengagement of ex Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina from civil service.

The Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Monday said that the president, who gave the directive, “acted on a new set of facts.”

According to Adesina, Buhari dismissed Maina because he left the service without permission and he absconded from the country, adding that his action brought embarrassment on Buhari’s government.

He said, “In issuing the directive that Maina should be immediately disengaged from service, Mr. President acted on a new set of facts. One, for leaving the service without permission; he ran away from the country. And two, for the embarrassment he has brought to the government.”

It would be recalled that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami had reportedly directed the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC) to reinstate Maina, after absconding for alleged N2bn fraud.

Recent report however, alleged that Oyo-Ita, the Head of Service approved the reinstatement of Maina and the consequent posting to the Ministry of Interior, a report which she denied.
