President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the case involving embattled ex-pensions boss, Abdulrasheed Maina will not be swept ‘under the carpet’.
In a statement through his special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, the case is an unravelling matter. Speaking on Channels Television ‘Politics Today’, Adesina said;
“As far as the government is concerned, it (Maina’s case) is an unravelling matter.The last you heard officially from the government was that he was ordered to be disengaged from service and a report was asked for, that report came in and the President has it.
So, until the President gets back to Nigerians, you can’t say the matter is closed or it is swept under the carpet,”
Maina’s who is wanted by the EFCC for embezzling N2 billion pension funds, gained limelight recently after was reinstated under ‘mysterious’ circumstances. This sparked a large outcry which prompted his immediate dismissal by the president.
Speaking on this Adesina said; “Nigerians love probe, you can’t call that a probe; he’s just asking for a report that led to the circumstance, it’s not a probe. A couple of days ago you gave a timeline on the former SGF and the former DG NIA issue.
And you gave it point after point, dateline after dateline – from the April 19 suspension to the submission of the report on August 23, and then on October 29 you had the feedback. So, that tells you that things are never swept under the carpet in this administration; you’ll get a feedback on it,” he said.
