The APC says reinstatement of Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, into the Civil Service was an embarrassment to the Federal Government.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi, stated this while speaking with newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja. He said the development was unacceptable.
Maina was said to have been dismissed from the Federal Civil Service for abandoning his duty post and evading arrest for his involvement in the looting of pension funds to the tune of N100 billion.
“We are all shocked like any other person. It is almost unbelievable that such a thing can happen.
“However, we are all delighted that President Muhammadu Buhari has taken very decisive punitive action against those that are involved.
“We are also delighted that he has ordered a full-scale investigation into the circumstances that led to this individual to be reinstated into the public office,’’ he said.
Abudullahi said that the APC believed that those that were part or found to be part of the development would face appropriate consequences.
