BREAKING: Drama as Perm Sec takes responsibility for Maina’s reinstatement

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Engineer Abubakar Magaji, has owned up to all the administrative lapses leading to the “erroneous reinstatement and promotion of Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reform.

Magaji, who stated this following barrage of evidence-based questions directed at him by members of the House of Representatives Ad hoc Committee investigating the circumstances surrounding the disappearance, reappearance, reinstatement and promotion of Mr. Maina, made the U-turn having first indicted the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, as being responsible for the letter directing Maina’s reinstatement.

However, Oyo-Ita in her defence before the panel marveled at the submission by the Permanent Secretary whom she described as “a senior permanent secretary in the civil service”, saying that Engr Magaji was being economical with the truth as her office never sent a letter directing the him to reinstate Maina.
