President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate dismissal of former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdullahi Abdulrasheed Maina, from service.

Maina had been at large since 2013 when he was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged N2 billion scam when he served as the Head of the Pension Task Force.

The embattled Maina, who prior to his suspension from service by the past administration of President Goodluck Jonathan was Assistant Director in the civil service, was secretly reinstated by the head of service, promoted to the office of Director and redeployed to the Ministry of Interior.

However, the president, according to a statement by his chief spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina, has queried the Head of Service, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, asking her to provide a full report on the circumstances surrounding Maina’s recall and consequent redeployment to the Ministry of Interior.

According to the statement, Oyo-Ita’s response should be submitted to the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, before the end of work Monday.

    LET IT BE CLEAR TO ALL THAT BUHARI HAS SHARED MAINA’S 2 BILLION LOOT TO FREE MAINA AND AT THE SAME TIME USE THE SHARED LOOT TO FIGHT HIS 2019 ELECTION.

    BUHARI IS A CROOKED FRAUDSTER ON GRAND SCALE AND HE THOUGHT HE WILL GET AWAY WITH THIS SCANDAL.

    THIS SCANDAL IS EMERGING AT ITS HEELS AFTER BUHARI AWARDED UNILATERALLY 26 BILLION ILLEGAL OIL CONTRACTS TO HIS SYCOPHANTS.

    NIGERIANS MUST NOW UNDERSTAND THAT BUHARI IS THE MASTER OF ALL THIEVES IN NIGERIA. UNLESS SENATE IS DEAD, SENATE SHOULD IMPEACH BUHARI IMMEDIATELY.

  • vic

    ALL THIS DRAMA NOW BEING PLAYED BY BUHARI IS A ROAD SHOW AND AN AFTER-THOUGHT. ONCE AGAIN, BUHARI AND HIS CENTRAL RING OF FRAUD HAS BEEN CAUGHT RED HANDED.

    MAINA’S APPOINTMENT WAS WITH THE ORAL BLESSING OF BUHARI. HOW CAN A WANTED MAN BE ROAMING FREE AND OCCUPY DIRECTOR’S POSITION WITH NO BODY MAKING ANY NOISE ABOUT IT?? THIS IS A TOP TO BOTTOM FRAUD WITH BUHARI AS THE TOP FRAUDSTER. THERE IS NO END TO BUHARI’S WONDERS WHEN HIS OWN LOOTERS AND SYCOPHANTS ARE CONCERNED.

    BUHARI IS A SELFISH MAN AND CAN SELL HIS MOTHER WHEN IN TROUBLE. BUHARI WILL USE MAINA’S PENSION LOOT TO FIGHT THE 2019 ELECTIONS.

    This Maina debacle could not have succeeded without the complicity of top elected and appointed officials within The Federal Service including The Acting CEO of EFCC!!!!
    Dismissal with no arrest? Time for all at the top to go!

  • josvinco

    EFCC will claim they did not know Maina was at Interior Ministry. The Police and SSS too are unaware the man who was declared wanted was in the Interior Ministry too. I wonder why it took the media until now . The president merely said he should be dismissed but not arrested to answer charges for the alleged 2 billion scam . The war against corruption is truly being fought.

    • vic

      buhari is a big thief and a total fraud, the war is only being fought with his opponents, there is no war against corruption.

      shameless buhari is a master of deception and fraud.

  • The head of civil service should be committed to prison for re-appoint Maina and even promoted him. The head of service must vomit the money paid to her by Mr. Maina. It is imperative that he cannot be reinstated without the prior knowledge of the Head of Service. She vicariously liable for the reappointment of this man waned by the EFCC. The EFCC should go to the office and a rest him.

    • vic

      EFCC DID NOT GO AFTER MAINA. WHY?? BECAUSE THE 2 BILLION MAINA LOOT HAS ALREADY BEEN SHARED WITH BUHARI TO FIGHT 2019 ELECTIONS.

      BUHARI IS GANGSTER THIEF WHO STEALS STEALINGLY WITHOUT ANY WRITTEN EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND.

      BUHARI IS A MAFIA GANGSTER AND A SEASONED LOOTER WHO LOOTS IN SUBTLE WAYS.

    Illiterate certificate forger, perjurer, bigot, narrow-minded sectionalist FOOLani Muhammadu Buhari is running a government of Northern criminals for Northern criminals by Northern criminals.

      BUHARI IS SHAMELESS MEGA THIEF WITH DICTATORIAL MIND SET.

    • Egie Joseph Odiase

      You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You have not received proper training from your parents. The president at least responded by immediately dismissing Maina. That is more than what Jonathan would have done. Buhari, as far as I am concerned, is a strong leader and that is what Nigerians need. People like you are used to chaos and confusion and would prefer a weak leader. Well, there is a new sheriff in town and you can abuse him as much as you can but meanwhile, the man is running a tight ship.

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are a moron. You cannot circumscribe my freedom of expression. I stand by my post.

        • Egie Joseph Odiase

          You are an asshole. There are many ways you can express yourself without insulting an old man who by the way is doing his best to maintain a normally useless country. Folks like you are just mad because you cannot steal like you used to.

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            You are a bastar*d. Screw your mum. An old fool who senselessly parked an aircraft at Stansted Airport for 104 days and grossed an estimated $520k in parking charges is “trying his best”? God punish you and him.

          • Egie Joseph Odiase

            You are the bastard. Your whore mother told you your father is a king. You better go look for your real father who is an alcoholic drug fiend living in a card board box.

          • Egie Joseph Odiase

            Simple mind with no brain. Do you actually believe the jibberish you just typed? Its bullshit unless you show us the evidence. Do you also believe the ipob propaganda that Buharis medical bills came up to 50 million pounds? Sure you do. Your mind and way of thinking is warped. You soak in all kinds of fake news into your thick skull and the curse on you makes you act irrationally. God has punished you already. Washing plates during the day and working security at night in England is not exactly what anyone prays for. You are doomed with a mindset like yours. Stanstead? Do you even know where that is? Better stick to your ghetto. Fuck face.

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            If you can’t spell “Stansted”, you aren’t in my league. Bugger off, twerp.

          • Egie Joseph Odiase

            I cannot spell peckam either, wanker.

          • Egie Joseph Odiase

            Oh and by the way, how about 24 hours 365 days constant electricity? That is what I enjoy these days. Thanks to Presido and Fashola. Only a born loser cannot recognize progress. Keep yourself in the dark until you rot away.

    Buhari is not incharge of Nigeria simple

  • Maria Darego

    Poor Mrs. Oto-Ita!!! When the decision to extort money from Maina and re-instate him and promote him and pay him all his entitlements was taken, she was not there!! The decision was probably taken by some men very close to the President after prayers in a mosque somewhere!!! The poor woman probably got a verbal directive from the President’s Chief of Staff (and Chief Bagman) to take the action that she took. She will now be hung out to dry. Any southerner Who has not learnt to use a very long spoon when eating with Buhari’s people should learn from this. Mrs oto-ita would be very lucky if they can let her retire in peace.

    • vic

      you have revealed the truth and caught buhari out. you are one hundred and ten percent correct. buhari sent an oral message to appoint maina without leaving any proof behind and used everyone around him in the process. buhari has shared 2 billion loot of maina to let him go scot free. buhari needs money for his 2019 elections. nigerians can now see real buhari.

    • BankyMons

      Why would she accept to do that without asking them to follow due process? She deserves whatever she gets, she had the option to say no and blow the whistle but she chose not to. In the bank I refused to disburse any credit that has not been duly approved by the appropriate approving authority. When I was threatened with reporting to the bank’s MD for ”killing business” I told them to go ahead and damned the consequences. You know what, they couldn’t do me nothing as they knew very well I will take all of them to the cleaners. We need Nigerians who have character in places of authority, I have no sympathy for Ms Oto-Ita. People like Ms Arunma Oteh should be in-charge in Nigeria. We all remember her story with the NASS and Mrs Ndi Okereke Onyiuke. Someone once said that our Civil Servants are the number problem Nigeria has and I think i believe that.

      Buhari never sacks anyone he appointed because that would prove that he (Buhari) was not infallible in selecting them in the first place. The infallibility of Buhari is even more sacrosanct than that of the Pope. The ONLY persons Buhari sacks are those appointed by others (like Maina), not his own appointees. Have you ever seen or heard of Buhari admitting that he made a mistake?

  • Romla

    Good.The same swift response should have taken in respect of Kachikwu’s allegations.
