An ad-hoc committee was on Tuesday instituted to investigate the “resurfacing, reinstatement and subsequent promotion” of alleged pension fund fraudster, Abdulrasheed Maina, by the Federal House of Representatives.
According to Premium Times, in a motion of urgent public importance raised by Adams Jagaba (Kaduna-APC), the house also vowed to recommend strong sanctions against anyone implicated in the scandal.
The lawmakers whose move came on the same day their counterpart in the Senate took the same step over the issue, also urged the EFCC to immediately arrest Mr. Maina for prosecution.
The Senate had earlier on Tuesday also resolved to investigate the circumstances that led to the reinstatement of Maina, into the civil service.
The lawmakers, after several deliberations, drafted the chairmen and vice- chairman of committees on Interior, Judiciary, Anti-corruption and Public Service Establishment to “determine the circumstances surrounding Maina’s return to the country and how he was reinstated to the service and got promoted to the post of Director after dismissal.”
