Buhari’s Govt Begged Maina To Join ‘Change Agenda’, Promised Him Protection – Family

Published

Abdulrasheed Maina

The Family members of former chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration begged the former pension boss to join the change agenda, with the assurance of security protection.

The family disclosed this during a press conference in Kaduna on Wednesday.

They added that their son is not a fraudster but a messiah who brought reforms into the pension scheme.

The spokesman of the family, Aliyu Maina said based on his “sterling record” at the scheme, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to Maina to key into the “change agenda”.

Aliyu wondered why government officials were denying his brother, especially when the Department of State Services (DSS) provided security for him.

“It is on record that Abdulrasheed Maina’s reform put to a stop the fraudulent withdrawal of huge sums from both the Nigerian Pension Board, the Nigerian Police Pension Board, etc. Perhaps it is his noble efforts that made him enviable to the present administration when they came into power to convince him to come back and assist in its ‘CHANGE’ agenda,” he said.

“Abdulrasheed was in fact invited by this administration and he was promised security to come and clean up the mess and generate more revenue to government by blocking leakages.

“He succumbed to the present administration and came back to Nigeria. He has been working with the DSS for quite some time and he was given necessary security.

“There is a letter from the attorney-general of the federation where he gave his own legal opinion regarding the court verdict which was submitted to the Civil Service Commission and the head of service respectively. So, one wonders why all the agencies and various individuals responsible for his return are now denying.”

Imo: My Govt Is Not Made Up Of Looters — Uzodinma

Published

on

Following ongoing report that the administration of Governor Hope Uzodinma is made up of looters, the Executive Governor of Imo state has denied the report.

The denial was contained in statement dated 18th February, 2020 released by his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku.

The newly sworn-in governor said his government is made of God fearing men and that rumors of ongoing looting in the government house is untrue.

Read the statement below;

The government of Imo State under Senator Hope Uzodinma is made up of credible Imo sons and daughters who have zero tolerance for criminality.

The government is proud of such personnel who have the fear of God and are solely committed to the service of the good people of Imo State.

The rumour, therefore, making the sounds on alleged looting in Imo State Government House is nothing but a lie from the pit of hell.

The rumour is engineered by members of the previous administration and their agents who are experts in assets stripping. They are yet to come to terms with the fact that the era of looting of government property is gone forever with their ouster from government.

Because criminals will always be criminals, they are seeing in the planned review of the case the sacked Emeka Ihedioha’s administration took before the Supreme Court and the adjournment as another window of opportunity to cause disaffection.

Unfortunately, they did not know that they were only reminding Imo people of what they are noted for i.e. looting of public funds and assets stripping of government property.

Under the government of Senator Uzodinma Imo people are happy that the looters they saw yesterday they will not see again today.

Governor Uzodinma does not only have confidence in the staff he has assembled to work with him, he also has implicit confidence in the entire Imo State work force and together they are working to ensure that Imo people are made prosperous.

Those who are alleging looting of government property should therefore have their heads examined or better still have a rethink in their own interest.

APC Now A Funny Organization Under Oshiomhole ⁠— Ex-SGF, Babachir Lawal

Published

on

Babachir Lawal

Babachir Lawal, the former secretary to the government of the Federation (SGF) has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a “funny organisation” under the leadership of Adams Oshiomole as the National Chairman of the party.

While addressing newsmen over the weekend, Babachir Lawal alleged that the north has lost its priviledge in the APC following the suspension of Lawal Shaibu and Inuwa Abdulkadir who are the national Vice-Chairmen of the party in the north and north-west respectively.

He said: “This APC is funny, as we speak, the chairman and his loyalists have suspended the deputy national chairman (north), the whole north, the chairman, national vice-chairman (north-west) which is the largest geographical zone with seven states has been suspended, he is no longer attending national working committee meeting.

“The national secretary of the party who is from the north, from Yobe, has left to become governor of Yobe state as we speak, there is no firm decision to his replacement.

“For more than one year or so. A very substantial part of the country is not represented in the decision making.”

Babachir further alleged that Oshiomhole does not involve prominent members of the party in decision-making.

He said: “I’m quite close to members of the NWC, they always complain about not being carried along so the chairman of a party is not an executive president where whatever you say is, you need to carry everyone along.

“That is the essence, a national vice-chairman north-east for example, he is for north-east and there are things unique to the area which he is aware of, which his own exco has brought to him for processing at the national secretariat. If he does not get the proper hearing and opportunity to present those things they are disenfranchised.”

Reacting on the reconciliation panel that was composed to resolve differences among warring members, the former SGF wondered what the panel led by Bisi Akande will achieve as he insisted that it is better for politicians to cut their losses and nurse their wounds rather than be reconciled.

Babachir Lawal said, “In politics, sometimes it is better not to reconcile, somebody must lose out.

“First of all there has to be confidence restored in the NWC that they capacity to be impartial and fair in the decisions they take on behalf of party members. As I speak I don’t think there is any APC member that can confidently tell you that he expects the NWC to be fair and just in some of the cases because we lost election on account of this.”

Published

Keyamo

Festus Keyamo, the minister of state for labour and employment, has blamed the All Progressives Congress (APC) for losing to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa state.

Recall that the Supreme Court on Thursday sacked David Lyon and Sen. Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, as the governor and deputy elect in the Nov. 16, 2019 governorship election in the state.

Keyamo who made this known on Thursday, February 14, while reacting to the apex court judgment on the election in the state, commended the court for being firm and resolute.

“The S/Court has been firm & resolute so far regarding pre-election cases & Election Petitions. I commend their lordship.

“As a party, we have to look at our own internal mechanisms that make us give our victories needlessly away to the opposition & take appropriate actions,” Keyamo wrote on Twitter.
