The former President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to claims the Federal government that his administration had a hand in the recall and reinstatement of wanted former Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on Pension Reform, Abdulrasheed Maina.
Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, released a statement yesterday in which he alleged that the former president’s loyalist brought in Maina who had been declared wanted over a N2.1 billion fraud committed while he was in office.
Reacting to the comments Garba, spokesperson to the former president, Ikechukwu Eze, told Premiumtimes, that it shows how rudderless and uncoordinated the Buhari-led administration is. According to Eze, the Buhari-led government officials should stop insulting Nigerians making such comments
“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? They should stop insulting Nigerians or seeing them as fools,” Mr. Eze said
Maina was dismissed Ex-president Jonathan in 2013 after the alleged massive fraud he carried out while in office was uncovered. He had since then been on the run and was declared wanted the EFCC and INTERPOL.
