Counsel to embattled former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, Mohammed Katu, on Thursday said Federal Government is still paying his client salaries.
Addressing the House of Representatives Committee probing Maina’s reinstatement into the Federal Civil Service, Katu insisted that the former Pension boss is still working as a government official, despite in hiding.
“Maina had to disappear because of the serious threats to his life,” Katu said.
“Maina is still receiving salaries. 23 files were sent to him in his capacity as acting director, even while he was absent.
Maina has continued to work even after he was dismissed.”
Attorney-General of the Federation and Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami had directed the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC) to reinstate Maina.
Displeased by the reports, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the immediate disengagement of the wanted ex-official.
