President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the immediate disengagement from service of Mr Abdullahi Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser media, Femi Adesina, in a memo to the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, the President equally demanded a full report of the circumstances of Maina’s recall and posting to the Ministry of Interior.

Adesina said the report is to be submitted to the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, before the end of work yesterday , Monday, October 23, 2017.

There was an uproar recently when stories filtered in that Maina had been secretly re-instated and promoted to the rank of director in the ministry.

LEADERSHIP recalls that Maina was appointed by former President Goodluck Jonathan as Chairman of the task force in 2010 to check the corruption in the country’s pension system.

In 2012, he was accused by the police of  misappropriating N100 billion pension funds in connivance with others.

Maina was arraigned in absentia by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), which declared him wanted in 2015.

The EFCC on Monday insisted that Maina  is still on the wanted list of the commission.
