The House of Representatives has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately arrest the former Chairman of Pension Reform Task Team, Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina for prosecution “in order to serve as deterrent to others who might have corrupt tendencies.”

The order is contained in the House resolution of Tuesday, October 24, 2017 on a motion of urgent national importance sponsored by Jagaba Adams Jagaba. The motion had asked the House to consider Maina's disappearance, re-appearance and subsequent reinstatement.

The House resolution was communicated to EFCC acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu by the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mr. M. A. Sani- Omolori through a letter referenced NASS/CAN/105/Vol.23/154 and dated November 7, 2017.

The House of Representatives has already constituted an Ad-hoc committee charged with the responsibility of investigating the circumstances surrounding the “re-surfacing, re-absorbing and subsequent elevation of Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina from the rank of Assistant Director (the position he held before he was removed in 2013, to the position of an Acting Director) and to recommend strong sanctions against any person or persons who are implicated in the scandal.”

Maina, who is the subject of investigation for alleged pension fraud, slipped into the country few months ago and was sensationally reabsorbed into the civil service and promoted acting Director.

He remains on the wanted list of the EFCC, which last week published fresh wanted person notice on the suspect, calling anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact it or report to the nearest police station. The suspect has not been seen in public since an online media published news of his "dubious reinstatement into the public service."
