President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the immediate disengagement from service of Mr Abdullahi Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms.
In a memo to the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, the President equally demanded a full report of the circumstances of Maina’s recall and posting to the Ministry of Interior.
The report is to be submitted to the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, before the end of work, Monday, October 23, 2017.
There had been outrage over Maina’s re-engagement despite corruption charges hanging over his head, with some critics of the President citing as evidence of double standards in the application of the anti-corruption big stick of the administration.
