Maina's request to meet with President Buhari is an insult to Nigeria - Sagay


Professor Itse Sagay has described the request by embattled former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Mr Abdulrasheed Maina to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari as ridiculous. 

Vanguard reports that the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption spoke on Wednesday, November 29 where he berated Maina’s request. He said it was insulting to the country that Maina is asking for audience with the president. Sagay said: "His request to meet with the President is out of the question. If every suspect has a whistle to blow and is therefore taken to the President, I don’t think the President will have any other job to do.

“Apart from the protocol and status, it is even insulting to the country. He can talk to the EFCC, ICPC and Police and if he wants a higher authority, he can meet with the Inspector-General of Police. So, he does not need to get to that level at all because nobody is going to allow that.” On the claim that Maina’s lifewas in danger, Sagay said: “The police are going to protect him; he should go to the police or the EFCC. 

They are the best protectors, they have armed officers, and they can keep him in a safe room or safe house. ‘’I don’t think that is going to be a problem. He can easily call them and then negotiate how he would arrive there and be kept safe.”
