A clearer picture of Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami’s role in the reinstatement of fugitive civil servant Maina emerged yesterday.
The minister admitted before a Senate ad hoc panel probing Maina’s reinstatement into the civil service and promotion to an acting director that he met with Maina in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) last year.
He also said he wrote letters to the Federal Civil Service Commission (FRSC) on the sacked chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team.
Maina was in 2015 accused of over N2billion pension fraud and declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). But he dramatically showed up in the country and was last month reinstated as acting director in the Ministry of Interior.
