Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday pushed back against “absurd” attempts by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to link him to the unfolding scandal of how a fugitive returned to the country and took a senior position in public service.

Mr. Jonathan said the fact that efforts are being made to link him to the return and reinstatement of Abdulrasheed Maina underscored how “uncoordinated and rudderless” the Buhari administration has become.

“Are they saying it is President Jonathan that flew him back into Nigeria and promoted him in two levels ahead of where he was as at 2013 when he fled the from civil service?” Mr. Jonathan’s spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze, told PREMIUM TIMES Wednesday night.

“They should stop insulting Nigerians or seeing them as fools,” Mr. Eze said.

Mr. Buhari has come under intense public backlash since last week Friday when PREMIUM TIMES uncovered Mr. Maina’s surreptitious return to civil service.

Mr. Maina was declared wanted by the EFCC on allegations of courting billions in public funds for his own use when he headed the pension reform task force.

The pension funds scandal broke out during Mr. Jonathan’s administration (2010-2015), and the government took disciplinary steps against Mr. Maina by dismissing him from service.

Mr. Maina was an assistant director at the time of his dismissal.

The presidency, in a statement by Garba Shehu Wednesday night, said top officials of the Jonathan administration benefitted from the funds Mr. Maina allegedly stole from pension funds.

“Top officials in the PDP government, from sectoral heads, to those charged with responsibility for law and order received some of these billions of naira from Maina,” the presidential spokesperson said. “We have all the transaction records and these are matters that the EFCC has been pursuing to ensure that they all have their day in court.”

Mr. Shehu also suggested that some influential officials loyal to the previous government may have been the invisible hand in the latest scandal that saw the return of Mr. Maina to the public service, despite being on the EFCC’s wanted list.

He, however, assured Nigerians that President Buhari was determined to get to the bottom of the matter of the impunity that led to Maina’s reinstatement.

“Everything will be uncovered in due course,” he said.  “This just goes to show us the scale of corruption that this government is fighting. And, as we can all see, corruption keeps fighting back viciously.”

Firing back within minutes later when PREMIUM TIMES reached him for comments, Mr. Jonathan’s spokesperson said the Buhari administration officials should waste little time in bringing out any evidence of connivance between Mr. Jonathan and Mr. Maina if they have it.

“There’s no need to warn that they will bring evidence out or that everything will be revealed on a later date,” Mr. Eze said. “They should present the evidence to Nigerians now.”

Mr. Eze said Mr. Maina’s family had already disclosed how the embattled former civil servant returned to the country and secured a new position in civil service even while he was being sought by the EFCC.

“The Maina family spoke about how he returned to the country and they made it very clear that Buhari officials were the ones that orchestrated his return,” Mr. Eze said.

Emerging details since Monday have pointed to the involvement of Attorney-General Abubakar Malami, the Federal Civil Service and the Ministry of Interior as playing critical roles in the reinstatement of Mr. Maina into the civil service.

PREMIUM TIMES also confirmed that Mr. Maina was accorded top-level security detail by the State Security Service since he returned to the country months ago.

      Nigeria will be a less worse country if Muhamadu Buhari is repealed and replaced.

      A country desiring progress must not be led by the sick, the knave, or, a fraudster!

  • The stench is very venomous!..how could this be explained away,we are waiting,the silence to some people is the sign of culpability of the people in the presidency,the usual suspect.i hope by tomorrow morning we will have headway!.

    • Otile

      I am sorry they are going to ask Osinbajo to take the blame. Foolishly he is going to do so.

      • share Idea

        lol. He will tell us that he actually signed the document for Maina to return to the country but not to reinstate him. Nigeria we hail thee

  • Agba

    Here the NONSENSE coming out of GARBA SHEHU’S mouth ,he thinks Nigérians are fools,saying that Jonathan people in the govt that help MAINA back in the country,this is ANIMAL talk

  • Arabakpura

    The due course being mentioned by Garba Shehu should not be the same due course of the grass cutting scandal! All of them are thieves as far as we concerned! Is Garba Shehu saying that Malami and Dan Banza are working for Jonathan?

  • Bassey Frank

    One truth Shehu Garba and Femi Adesina must know is that Nigerians are no longer persuaded by their antics of lies, hypocrisy and deceit by trying to rope in former President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP. Maina case has shown the world who Buhari really is. We are being told that someone actually approved Maina’s reinstatement but now claiming he was misguided. Imagine Ibrahim Magu, gathering cameramen in a convoy to seal off Maina’s properties they “just” discovered? Imagine Maina being a Southerner …? Someone would have gone to Saudi Arabia for extra spiritual power to deal with him. Pity. When shame means nothing to a man, the person should better reconsider his existence.

    • share Idea

      Just last week or this week, Lai M claimed that every pronouncements of this administration is truth and not propaganda, all in a bid to counter valid points made by GEJ.

      Does that Lai M rebuttal need further rejoinder with all the happening in the country in recent time.

  • OJpo

    There is TWIST IN THE TALE with Mr. Garba Shahu’s STATEMENTS. Intelligent Nigerians are watching and waiting to hear the true story from Mr. President.

  • Kelly

    Ex President Jonathan is responsible for Buhari not waiting to complete his secondary school, Because Jonathan’s father was a teacher in Daura and the young Jonathan was always disturbing Buhari at the time and out of anger Buhari left school and joined the army without his certificate. Garba Shehu has the videos to show to the world very soon. Mad people!!!

      The scandals that rocked Jonathan’s government of six years cannot be likened to that of your tribesman’s two and half years; whose brain is in the pit latrine.
      A hundred Buhari cannot match the only one GEJ. The man took responsibility for the problems in his government.
      But Buhari would always look for non-existent characters to accuse for his frauds, failings and lack of discretion and good faith.

  • Konkolo

    PMB, Nigerians are anxiously waiting when the axe will fall on Malami and Dambazau. Anyrhhing short of that means your government is FRAUD.

    • Hogg

      @Konkolo,

      The verbally reckless media in Nigeria created Buhari and now,
      the sloppy media struggle to undo its own blunder. It was the media
      which insouciantly added MAN OF INTEGRITY to Muhamadu Buhari’s
      name. Never did Buhari describe himself as such.

      Without seeing any evidence
      of Buhari’s claimed Wasc /Gce certificate till today the sloven
      Nigerian media kept to reckless trope of mis describing a man
      with no provable credentials as a Man of Integrity.

      Till today no journalist
      has calculated Buhari’s shareholdings on the stock market
      in figures; as Buhari keeps concealing that fact; yet, the media keep
      misleading usually naive Nigerians that integrity is a term that can
      exist on its own without any basis, test or proof. That is why Nigeria
      came to this sorry pass under the misrule of a corrupt and dishonest
      murderous man created in fiction by an almost irresponsible media.

      • Okakuoofbenin

        Bless you bro. The problem with Nigeria is not individual based. So if you like go and recruit Jesus the Christ, nothing will change. RESTRUCTURE the fraud and every other thing will fall into place. Is a shame that in Nigeria, the so called educated ones are the dumbest, shallow minded with little or no depth of memory.

    Muhamadu Buhari and the road not taken

    President Buhari has a legal option. He can resign from office
    without admission of responsibility for the mess his incompetence caused
    Nigeria. So far Buhari has made Nigeria worse and more corrupt than he
    met it. Almost everyone agrees that Buhari’s selection of a slew of mediocre
    creatures as Ministers, is Buhari’s greatest undoing.

    Never in history
    has such a coalition of retards been assembled and (wrongly) called a
    “cabinet of Ministers“. But because Buhari is inured to shame he does not
    mind being laughed at as the worst president Nigeria has ever had.

    Everyday
    in Nigeria nowadays is one scandal of theft or corruption by Buhari’s aides
    and political appointees – none of whom has any faith in Buhari’s fake and
    false and empty rhetoric to fight corruption. No Minister has any real trust
    or faith in Muhamadu Buhari’s ability to govern Nigeria with competence,
    honesty or knowledge. For if any Minister has any slight faith or trust
    in Buhari this collusion between the attorney general and the Minister
    of Interior would not have been plotted to reinstate Alhaji Maina in
    violation of all laws, and pay MAINA a sum of 22 million Naira as
    reward for running away from Nigeria for 3 years to escape court
    judgment – a plot both Ministers executed with total contempt for
    President Buhari.

    • Konkolo

      True talk except for the part where you commented that Buhari is the worst President Nigeria ever had. Right now, Jonathan is the current record holder. Peace my fellow Nigerian.

      • Fairgame

        Na lie. Jonathan is 1 million times better than Buhari. Apart from propaganda and lies what have they achieved? Nothing! Atleast under Jonathan Nigeria got the sovereign wealth fund, put systems in place to check ghost workers, initiated TSA, etc. it is only bigots that keep insulting Jonathan but refuse to insult Buhari for doing even worse.

        • Konkolo

          I just think that most of your kind defending Jonathan on this forum are not sincere with facts. Jonathan might be your hero or semi-god, to me and most Nigerians without sentiments knows that moron Jonathan was an ineffectual Buffon. Have a nice day.

          • Niekeyi Kosene

            Jonathan is far better, intellectually competent and a detribalized leader than Buhari. See for yourself in just two years how PMB has ran the country aground.

          • Konkolo

            So where was his intelligence and competency all the while that his minister for oil and others were feasting on Nigeria’s wealth that belong to all Nigerians? Looks like in your own world, the yard stick for measuring intelligence and competence is by allowing massive corruption to thrive. Good day.

          • SLO

            You better wait until Buhari is out off office. There has been corruption and there is still corruption and it gets worse everyday regardless of whether it is Buhari or Jonathan. we need to build institutions abs systems that are completely insulated from politics that will check mate corruption. Whether GEJ or PMB or Abdulsalami or Abacha or Babngida, there has been massive corruption. Mind you, corruption is not just stealing. It begins when government officials observe due process in breach. When a govt responsible for ensuring that there is due process in place, capable of checking arbitrary discretion of public officers fails to do so, that is corruption. Check the dictionary meaning. If you are really unhappy about the level of corruption in Nigeria, then I tell u that saying that so and so is the most corrupt is ineffective. There is no price to be given to the most corrupt or the least corrupt. All will face exactly the same music.

      PMB is not perfect. Nobody is except God. A lot of things happen in the federal civil service which our presidents never knew – i retired from there so i know. The specialty of the administrators is to cleverly circumvent the rules whenever they wish, so there must be many like Maina’s case there which the presidency is not aware of. Maina’s matter blew up becos it is high profile and also becos there is a criminal element to it

      • man leader

        Buhari’s imperfections dates back to 1976 when he served as Minister (Federal Commissioner ) Petroleum and Natural Resources ; as HOS, 1983-85; as Chairman PTF. He’s left trail of missing and embezzled billions in DOLLARS. I don’t see any change or repentance, neither in his person or ASSOCIATES.

        • Dr Bunmi Binitie

          I dont know that PMB has ever been accused of stealing. That one is a lie. His hatred for corruption has always been his strongest selling point and nobody can change that. He was never indicted in the cases of money missing in PTF.

            And you retired from service in Nigeria? Tell me you were imported fro Ivory Coast into civil service shortly before you retire.
            If you were literate at those times and knew nothing about Nigeria, then we wasted Nigeria money on you.
            Joseph Wayas the Senate President set up a probe panel on the missing $2.8 billion and Oloye Saraki was head of that panel. The report that indicted Buhari was ready at almost the same time that commissioned by President Shehu Shagari was ready. That Buhari and his thieving gang could not stomach and had to overthrow Shagari. Then the story died.
            Obasanjo who was in charge then knew, same reason he has never made any meaningful comment about Buharis current mal-governance.
            One was Head of state and the other Federal Commissioner, BCCI scandal.

      mr Abudulrashid maina was dismissed by Jonathan administration in 2013 after it was discovered that he stole loot of billions in the tune of over #150billion, but surprisingly 4 years later buhari administration invited maina back to Nigeria, gave him loot of security and executive fiat to work frelly, including rewarding him with two double promotion. and you are now blaming Jonathan who sack him and oderd his arest and prosecution.

Please if truly Jonatan’s government sacked Maina then show us is dismissal paper’s.

            Stop telling lies, he (Maina) wasn’t declared wanted during Jonatan’s regime. Immediately Buhari’s won the election he ran out of the country, his mate the man in charged of Custom tendered his letter of retirement, and took to his heels.

  • Anonymous

    “Mr. Shehu also suggested that some influential officials loyal to the previous government may have been the invisible hand in the latest scandal that saw the return of Mr. Maina to the public service, despite being on the EFCC’s wanted list”——————So it is PDP thieves that appointed Malawi, Kyari, Babachir lawal, Dambazu, Duran, and many ministers working in collusion as a team, m of corruption, dishonest, underachieving cabals? It is PDP that is padding APC budget, running NNPC without due process, supervision or oversion? It is PDP that is tyingredients Buhari so hand from implementingredients Babachir and Okehampton report? It is Zpdp that budgeted billions for a so rock clinic yet it lacks paracetamol and syringes? PDP appointed thieves for Buhari that Buhari sees no reason to replace or re–shuffle cus same PDP is tying his hand, same PDP is even forcing Buhari to excuse, defend and cover up for them? So all the songs many numerous corruption scandals are the hand work of PDP to embarrass Buhari overspent? ALL THE PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESPERSONS ARE COMPLETE ASSET HOLESO AND A DISGRACE TO THE JOURNALISM PROFESSION, IT IS NOT ENOUGH THEY INSULT NIGERIANS PERSONALLY THEY MUST ALSO INSULT THEIR INTELLIGENCE WITH ALL THESE LIES AND THRASSHY RUBBISH TALK.

EVERYBODY IN ASO ROCK HAS SEEN BUHARI FINISH,HE IS A MORON WHO DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HE SIGNS, AS LONG AS U GET DSS ON BOARD AND KYARI TO PRESENT UR PLANS FOR APPROVAL, BUHARI WILL SIGN, THAT IS WHY BABACHIR LAWAL SAID “WHO IS THE PRESIDENCY” CUS TEAM PRESIDENCY NA WE WE, NA CABALS AND BUHARI IS JUST A FIGURE HEAD OF THE CABAL

    Why is our President afraid of the trio of DG of DSS (Daura), the AGF (Mailami) and the COS (Kyari)? These three may end up disgracing our PMB and all he has been standing for all his life. If PMB can not show them the way out of his government, they in turn may show him a disgraceful way out.

    The president’s spokesman should simply shut up if he has nothing reasonable to say. I think we are beyond being fed maggots for dinner. And what a disgrace of a nation.

    MUHAMMADU BUHARI’S GOVERNMENT: AN AVALANCHE OF CHEAP &
    UNINTELLIGENT LIES, NUMEROUS SCANDALS, PROPAGANDA, CONFUSION AND A MESS
    THAT NEVER TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING.

    Vanguard (a few days back):

    “Maina’s reinstatement is an embarrassment to APC federal government” -Bolaji Abdullahi, APC National Publicity Secretary.

    New Telegraph (today):

    “All Progressives Congress – APC Government convinced Maina to come back to work”- Maina’s Family.

    Punch NewsPaper Nigeria (today):

    “PDP behind Maina’s secret return” -Buhari’s Presidency.

    Vanguard (2 days back):

    “I acted in public interest in returning Maina to work”. -Malami, ‘AGF’.

    MY take:

    Muhammadu Buhari ‘s government is an avalanche of cheap and
    unintelligent lies, numerous stinking scandals, propaganda, confusion
    and a mess that never takes responsibility for anything!

    Maybe Malami is now in PDP for Muhammadu Buhari ‘s government to accuse PDP of returning Maina to work.

    Mama hypocrite has returned. Your white-washing this monumental fraud and scam just to give Buhari a good image has clearly shown the kind of person you are.
    If you worked as a civil servant for years, before you retired, then you must be corrupt too. How you keep Maina’s issue aside and turn to addressing corruption in the civil service
    If you were forthright, we would have heard so much about you in service as an exception, but you also were part of the pack.
    Do not tell me you attended fellowships whilst there, all dat na story.
    The other day, you rebuked yourself, as if God is for sale and can do the bidding of members of a criminal gang – APC as and when they feel like.
    That act alone betrayed you as another fraud.
    Mama i beg waka make we see road.

      Your mother and you are the hypocrites. The Blood of Jesus is against you for this unwarranted insult!

      You have just taken peace away from your own life.
