The House of Representatives is debating a motion on the alleged recall, reinstatement, and sack of the former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on pension reform, Abdulrasheed Maina.
The Lawmakers are calling for an investigation into the matter as it has raised a lot of questions that are begging for answers. They have set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate the matter and give strong sanctions against any person or persons implicated in the issue.
The House is also urging the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to immediately arrest Maina for subsequent prosecution.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Senate had set up an ad hoc committee to investigate the recently dismissed civil servant and former Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on Pension, Abdulrasheed Maina.
After its sitting on Tuesday, the Senate resolved that the Committee on Public Service and Establishment investigate how Maina got into the country after he left the shores of the country and trailing a report that he was on EFCC wanted list for about two years.
The Senate through the committee is also set to investigate how Maina was reinstated into Public Service and how he got promoted to the level of Director in the civil service.
Meanwhile The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has sealed two houses allegedly belonging Maina in Kaduna State. The two properties include a two-storey shopping plaza at number 2c Ibrahim Taiwo road and another one storey duplex at Katuru road all located in the state capital.
An official of the commission confirmed the sealing which took place today and further stated that five more houses in the state capital belonging to Maina were being traced and will soon be sealed.
