Pension fraud: Heads of Service are complicit- Ihuoma

*Ask ICPC for the N35bn petition before them

*Recall them for double checks

All the seven Heads of Civil Service of the Federation must be recalled and their activities checked if the eventual truth of pension monies stolen can be gotten to the root. They are the biggest actors in the stealing of billions years in that office.

This is the assertion of Hon Ngozika Ihuoma, the Executive Secretary of Legislative Watch, in an interview he granted in Abuja on the saga that has rocked the nation since the last quarter of 2017.

Hon Ngozika Ihuoma...raises new dust on pension fraud

Ihuoma said: “I can tell you for free that all the last seven Heads of Civil Service of the Federation with the exception of Steve Orosanye are involved deeply in the pension scandal. It is their voice you were hearing when Oyo-Ita was busy shouting on the floor of the National Assembly that she “warned” the President not to re-absorb Abdulrasheed Maina back to the civil service.

From Mrs Ama Pepple to Prof Oladapo Afolabi, Alhaji Isa Bello Sali and Danladi Kifasi. I jumped Alhaji Bukar Goni Aji who served before Kifasi deliberately. He was the Permanent Secretary of the Police Affairs Ministry when the heist was being committed leading to the arrest of the suspects facing prosecution.

Question is, how did Aji escaped being arrested and prosecuted? Was it not under his signature that all those who are facing trial now got what they stole? This is where the EFCC complicity comes in. Until Jesus’ second coming, no prosecution can be concluded of the suspects. That is why they are facing prosecution for almost eight years without any sign of closing the cases. Who are they deceiving?

These are people (former Heads of Service) including their Permanent Secretaries and Directors who should be in jail. There is this £6million they stole and kept in a UK bank account. They regularly share the interest.

Please ask ICPC about the report my organisation submitted to them about N35billion that was stolen in the Head of Service between the transition from PRTT to PTAD. Our petition led the ICPC to invite and arrested 15 staffers of the Head of Service. Was money paid to kill the report and investigation? These and many others are what is killing them about the fears that if Maina returns, he would expose them.
