Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said he is not aware of Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged involvement in the recall of former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team Abdulrashed Maina.
Maina, who was accused of fraud of over N2billion, had fled the country, shortly after he was sacked by the past administration.
However, the ex-pension boss, who recently sneaked back into the country, was reinstated into the civil service under controversial circumstances.
Following his reinstatement, the Head of Civil Service of the federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, had in a leaked memo, claimed the president was aware of the ex-Pension boss’s recall.
But speaking on Osasu Show, Adesina said all those who were mentioned in connection with Maina’s case should be asked of Buhari’s involvement.
He said: ”The head of service to the best of my knowledge has not come out to own that memo allegedly published and credited to her. Until she owns it and says this memo is from me, then I can comment on it.”
”It is those who did the reinstatement who can answer that question, not me. Those involved and those mentioned- federal civil service, head of service, and attorney general of the federation. I think you should rather pose that question to them.”
