Wanted former pension boss Abdulrasheed Maina has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to give him a chance.
Maina, in an interview with Channels TV, said he’s in possession of information and documents that would fetch the president N3 trillion.
He said he’s been threatened with death but will continue to speak the truth. He said:
I recovered money for the last administration and I recovered money for this administration. Most people may not understand this but let me explain this to Nigerians because I want the truth to be told and I want Nigerians to understand the truth and know what is going on in Nigeria.
Listen, I am not afraid of anybody, I am saying the truth. People portray themselves as if they are saints around the President; it’s a lie, they are not. We recovered as a team, N282billion cash. Aside from the N282bn, we were able to bring information and caught 43 pension suspects.
They have threatened me, they have threatened my lawyer, they have threatened my brother, sister; they have threatened us all that I will be killed.
Mr President, I will give you information and documents that will fetch you over N3 trillion now in Nigeria, give me nine months. Within the first three months, I will show you N1trillion just like I showed you N1 trillion in this 2017
Maina had, in 2012, been accused by the Nigeria Police of misappropriating N100 billion pension funds in connivance with others.
The Civil Service Commission reportedly dismissed him for “absconding from duty.’’
Maina had then been secretly reinstated by the Buhari-administration, and was again fired after it was discovered by the public, causing outrage.
