Fayose Slams Buhari For Reinstating Pension Boss Accused Of N2bn Fraud

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has slammed the President Muhammadu Buhari administration for reabsorbing the wanted ex-Chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, despite being indicted for allegedly perpetrating fraud to the tune of N2bn.

The Ministry of Interior confirmed on Sunday that Maina, who is still on the EFCC’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.

Maina is allegedly expected to run for governor of Borno State in 2019 on the platform of the APC.
In his reaction, Fayose, who is also under probe by the EFCC, said on his official Twitter handle that, “Someone accused of stealing billions of pension fund was returned to the FG civil service and you still think Buhari is fighting corruption?”
