The immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan has described as “absurd” attempts by the current administration to link him to the scandalous return to the country and reinstatement into a senior position in public service of Abdulrasheed Maina.According to Jonathan, the fact that efforts were being made to connect him to the scandal underscored how “uncoordinated and rudderless” the Buhari administration has become.
Spokesperson to the former President, Ikechukwu Eze said this on Wednesday night.
“Are they saying it is President Jonathan that flew him back into Nigeria and promoted him in two levels ahead of where he was as at 2013 when he fled the from civil service?” he told Premium Times.
He added, “They should stop insulting Nigerians or seeing them as fools.
Maina, who was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on allegations of courting billions in public funds for his own use when he headed the Pension Reform Task Force, was mysteriously recalled to the workforce during the weekend.
