President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the dismissal of Abdulrasheed Maina from service and ordered a full investigation into the circumstances of his recall.
This was disclosed by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on his Twitter page (@FemAdesina) on Monday, October 23, 2017.
“PMB orders immediate disengagement of Mr Abdulrasheed Maina from service. Asks for full report on circumstances of his recall,” he posted.
Abdulrasheed Maina, ex-pension boss was indicted on charges of fraud running into billions of naira, and fired by Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, after he escaped to the UAE, rather than face charges against him. He is described as wanted by the EFCC.
A few days ago, news broke that the Pension boss was re-instated and promoted and condemnations had rained forth as it was seen as a slur against the anti-corruption fight of the current administration.
