Buhari’s Government Invited Maina For Reinstatement, Gave Him DSS Protection – Family Speaks | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The family of Abdulrasheed Maina, former Pensions boss, on Wednesday alleged that their son was reinstated by the Federal Government because he is a messiah that reformed the Pension scheme.

Insisting that Maina is not a fraudster, spokesperson of the family, Aliyu Maina accused a “cabal” of being behind the travails of the ex-Pension boss.

Speaking at a news conference in Kaduna, the family’s spokesperson said based on his “sterling record” at the scheme, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to Maina to key into the “change agenda”.

Wondering why the government is denying their son, Aliyu alleged that the Department of State Services (DSS) gave Maina protection.

Aliyu said, “It is on record that Abdulrasheed Maina’s reform put to a stop the fraudulent withdrawal of huge sums from both the Nigerian Pension Board, the Nigerian Police Pension Board, etc. Perhaps it is his noble efforts that made him enviable to the present administration when they came into power to convince him to come back and assist in its ‘CHANGE’ agenda.

“Abdulrasheed was in fact invited by this administration and he was promised security to come and clean up the mess and generate more revenue to government by blocking leakages.

“He succumbed to the present administration and came back to Nigeria. He has been working with the DSS for quite some time and he was given necessary security.

“There is a letter from the attorney-general of the federation where he gave his own legal opinion regarding the court verdict which was submitted to the Civil Service Commission and the head of service respectively. So, one wonders why all the agencies and various individuals responsible for his return are now denying.”

“As you know Abdulrasheed Maina had been a target of in the past, so experience is the best teacher. But when his security is guaranteed, he will surface from wherever he is and tell Nigerians the truth.

“All the same, we have contacted our solicitors, Messrs Mamman Nasir & Co and instructed them to act appropriately. We equally know that Abdulrasheed Maina is in possession of so facts that are against the cabal and interesting to the Nigerian populace, which he will disclose soonest. One must ask whether it is an offence for somebody to serve his fatherland.”

  1. Are you saying the government of Buhari invited this man into the country? Are you saying since his arrival into the country he he been under the protection of this government and the DSS? Are you also saying Mains is innocent and did not steal pension funds of N2b alleged by EFCC? If so why on the run? Many others have all sort of allegations on their necks and they spent some days in the EFCC cell and released on bail granted by the court. They remained in Nigeria to face trial. Why is Maina on the run if he is a Messiah of the pension board?

  2. Both maina and and the present government playing to the gallary are all corrupt, trying to deceive gullible Nigerians. The family is very much wright .Buhari's government can not deceive Nigerians anymore. Who offered him security protection? Who reinstated him into the civil crevice? Who promoted him to the rank of Director ?
