The resumption of the wanted chairman of the Presidential Task Team on Pensions Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, who has been reinstated into the Federal Civil Service and promoted to the post of Director is a source of confusion for the ministry of interior.
Investigations revealed that there is a sense of shock among senior officials in the ministry who were taken aback by the news.
It was gathered that the former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) is said to be in Kano presently but will be in the office on Monday.
Maina absconded his post when he was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over pension scheme fraud amounting to N195 billion, for which he was indicted by the Senate Joint Committee on Public Service and Establishment and State and Local Government Administration in 2012.
He had been drafted in 2010 to help sanitize the system and ended up being accused of fraud and was arraigned in court in July 2015 alongside former head of the Federal Civil Service Stephen Orosanye and two others.
