*PBM administration begged Maina to return home
*He has helped Govt with recoveries
*He will disclose details about pension cabal
Family members of the former chairman of the Presidential Pension Reforms Task Team (PRTT), Alhaji Abdulrasheed Maina, on Wednesday in Kaduna, have revealed that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration begged the former pension director to join the change agenda having saved N1.6 trilllion properties out of which N282billion is cash.
Spokesman of the family, Aliyu Maina, stated this at a press conference in Kaduna, also said that the family is in the know that Abdulrasheed Maina is in possession of so many facts and deep evidences that are against the pension cabal that would be interesting to the Nigerian populace.
He assured that the former pension boss would disclose these details soonest, adding that Maina will resurface when his security is guaranteed. He has already given this government so many leads that led to recoveries of stolen funds.
According to Aliyu Maina; “Based on his sterling financial intelligence record, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to Maina to key into the change agenda. Several trips of meetings were held and assurances given.
“Why are government officials denying Abdulrasheed Maina especially when the Department of State Services (DSS), provided security for him?
“Perhaps, it is his noble efforts at the PRTT that made him enviable to the present administration when they came into power to convince him to come back and assist in its ‘change’ agenda,” he said.
“Abdulrasheed was in fact invited by this administration and he was promised security to come and clean up the mess and generate more revenue for government by blocking financial leakages.
“He succumbed to the present administration and came back to Nigeria. He has been working with the DSS for quite some time and he was given necessary security.
“Abdulrasheed Maina had been a target of the massive pension cabal in the past. So, experience is the best teacher. But when his security is guaranteed, he will surface from wherever he is and tell Nigerians the whole truth which will shock the nation.”
“We have contacted our solicitors, Messrs Mamman Nasir & Co and instructed them to act appropriately. One must ask whether it is an offence for somebody to serve his fatherland.”
“It is on record that Abdulrasheed Maina’s reform put to a stop the fraudulent withdrawal of huge sums from both the Head of Service , the Nigerian Police Pension Board, saving cash of N282billion and properties making the total to be in the region of N1.6trillion” Aliyu Maina insisted.
