Maina: Why Buhari must probe ex-pension boss’ allegations – Ijaw youths


The Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to set up a national judicial commission of inquiry to investigate allegations made by sacked former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.

The youth group said the commission should be headed by a retired judge, who would determine the veracity of Maina’s claims including the said amount he recovered.

Chairman of IYC, Eric Omare-led IYC made the call, in a statement signed by Omare.

Omare said the call to setup the commission became necessary because Maina’s allegations indicted some top presidential aides.

He said, “The IYC is of the view that these allegations are grave, serious and should not be swept under the carpet under any circumstances. It seems from the allegations by Maina that top officials of the Buhari administration are looting recovered stolen funds with lorry on a daily basis.

“In order for the federal government to justify its anti-corruption crusade, it must get to the root of the allegations. Hence, the IYC is of the view that a National Judicial Commission of Inquiry to be headed by a retired judge with impeccable character be set up.”

Omare also urged the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to step aside in the interest of the anti-graft war.

He said: “Mr. Malami cannot continue to function as the Chief Law Officer of Nigeria in the midst of the allegations of complicity in the controversial reinstatement of Maina and the possible conversion or looting of recovered loots.

“The only way the anti-corruption crusade of the present administration can be taken serious is for Mr. Malami to step aside like the former Secretary to Government of the Federation while investigations are ongoing and all those involved in the looting of recovered funds brought to justice.”
