Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Sunday questioned the President Muhammadu Buhari administration for reinstating the ex-Chairman of the defunct Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, despite being indicted for allegedly perpetrating fraud to the tune of N2bn and who is on INTERPOL wanted list.
Fayose, however, reacted to the reappointment of Maina as a Director in Nigeria’s civil service.
On his official twitter handle, the Ekiti State governor wrote: “Someone accused of stealing billions of pension funds was returned to the FG civil service and you still think Buhari is fighting corruption?”
The Ministry of Interior confirmed on Sunday that Maina, who is also still on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s wanted list, was reabsorbed and promoted to the position of Director of Human Resources at the ministry following recommendations from the Office of the Head of Service
Newsheadline247 gathered that the fugitive director is expected to run for governor of Borno State in 2019 on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
