BY MBACHU GODWIN NNANNA, Abuja –
The House of Representatives has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately arrest the former chairman of Pension Reform Task Team, Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, for prosecution “in order to serve as deterrent to others who might have corrupt tendencies.”
The House’s order, which is contained in its resolution of Tuesday, October 24, 2017 on a motion of urgent national importance sponsored by Representative Jagaba Adams Jagaba, that considered the disappearance, re-appearance and subsequent reinstatement and promotion of Abdulrasheed Maina, was communicated to the acting chairman of the EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu, by the clerk of the National Assembly, Mr M. A. Sani- Omolori, through a letter referenced NASS/CAN/105/Vol.23/154 dated November 7, 2017.
The House of Reps has already constituted an ah-hoc committee charged with the responsibility of investigating the circumstances surrounding the “re-surfacing, re-absorbing and subsequent elevation of Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, from the rank of assistant director to the position of an acting director.
Maina, who is the subject of investigation for alleged pension fraud, slipped into the country few months ago and was sensationally reabsorbed into the civil service and promoted acting director.
He remains on the wanted list of the EFCC, which last week published fresh wanted person notice on the suspect, calling anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact the Commission or report to the nearest police station. The suspect has not been seen in public since an online media published news of his dubious reinstatement into the public service.
