The embattled former civil servant, Abdulrasheed Maina, came highly recommended to head a team tasked with cleaning up a pension mess at the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation, when he was appointed in 2010.

Mr. Maina, who for three years headed what was variously called Pension Reform Task Team, PRTT or Presidential Task Force on Pension Reform, PTFPR, is a subject of recent controversy following his secret reabsorption into the civil service after he was dismissed in 2013.

In 2015, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, pressed charges of corruption to the tune of N2 billion on Mr. Maina and his accomplices.

Mr. Maina, however, fled before the trial prompting the issuance of an arrest warrant against him, and his listing on INTERPOL’s Red Notice.

To the shock of Nigerians, however, Mr. Maina secretly resurfaced recently and was by late September issued a letter recalling him to the civil service and posted as acting director of Human Resources at the Ministry of Interior.

    lool we don’t really need an infograph do we

  • tunde

    Is this not incredible as there are many would be ‘Maina’ in the system?

    Bravo Premium Times; this is creativity par excellence. But there is an omission:
    OCTOBER 30, HEAD OF SERVICE DISCLOSED THAT PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI WAS AWARE OF MAINA’S RE-ABSORPTION INTO THE SERVICE.
    Without this ‘box’, your info-graphic is critically defective, because that is at the core of the entire mess.

    I have never seen such time and focus on one man like Maina that this newspaper outfit have dedicated time and resources to….I would like anyone here to name one person who has been consistently given such publicity? And yet do not have a say in whatever is printed….how sad…..this is the precedence PT is making….sometime in the future one of your own would be given the same treatment and degrading or destructive publicity and no one will bother to hear other side….until that day comes….I wish best of luck.

      It is purely in the public interest. The number of comments in reaction to each post by PT testifies to this. You are entitled to your own purely microscopic minority view anyway. Please ride on PT. We are following the chart buster story, fit for the Hardley Chase Series.
