Maina Wants Enforcement Of Court Order Stopping His Prosecution



The chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reform, Mallam Abdulrasheed Maina, has called on the president and founder, Human Rights Radio & Brekete Family, Ordinary Ahmad Isah, to intervene in the case between him and the EFCC, ensuring that his long protracted and unjust persecution since December 2012, is brought to an end.

Maina, who headed the disbanded PRTT, spoke through his Media Aide, Aliyu Musa, who visited Brekete family. He explained that the decision to involve the Human Right organisation is based on his recognition that it fights just cause.

The PRTT boss’s media aide, who pleaded with Brekete to help halt his continued persecution and humiliation by the EFCC, enjoined the right group to investigate thoroughly in other to uncover the truth.

While appealing to the right group to ensure the enforcement of a recent court order which bars the anti graft agency and other bodies from further harassing Maina and or declaring him wanted, Musa lamented that, despite securing five judgements in his favour, he has been subjected to suffering, untold hardship and persecution under a “Democratic governance”.

Recall that a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had stopped the  EFCC from declaring Mallam Abdulrasheed Maina wanted.

The court says EFCC went against section 41 and 42 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015 as the judge, argued that the EFCC had no right to declare Maina wanted without an order of a court.

Musa said, “as a sincere person, Maina has decided to run to you with the belief that you will work hard to halt this injustice meted out to him by digging deep into this mess, uncovering and exposing the real issue as well as educating Nigerians about the intrigues playing out as against what is being peddled in the news media.

He said, “The Pension thieves have the financial muscle to control  what some media houses report. We should ask questions about the whereabouts of the whooping sums and properties uncovered, recovered and handed over to the EFCC and others hunting Maina today.

Musa specifically said, “I am here to tell Nigerians to disregard the lies told about Maina and to inform them that Abdulraheed Maina did not steal a dime of the pension fund or any other such funds, because he never received budget nor a dime.

He was only working on papers and never handled cash so how could he have stolen? I state categorically that the cabal is afraid that Maina may expose them. Can we know why 42 out of the 43 pension suspects arrested in 2012 are not to be convicted?

Musa said that his principal has exercised restraint and threatened that if the humiliation persists, vital documents would be published as exhibits.
