The Presidency has debunked the claim by the family of the former Chairman of Pension Reform Task Team Abdulrasheed Maina that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration invited him into the country to help realise its change agenda.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, in a statement Wednesday, described the claim as “a freshly minted falsehood.”
The presidential spokesman stated that nobody should believe the family’s claim.
Shehu said, “The family that made that claim simply wanted to be ridiculous. Please ignore them.”
Maina’s family members on Wednesday alleged that their son was reinstated by the Federal Government to appreciate him for the radical reforms he brought into Nigerian Pension Scheme.
The family also claimed that Maina’s recent ordeal in the hands of the EFCC is a deliberate plot by a cabal to tarnish the good image of President Buhari and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN).
