Obasanjo Finally Speaks On Maina Scandal, Warns Buhari by fulaniHERDSman(m): 2:03pm On Oct 29, 2017
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that the reinstatement and dismissal of a former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, was not consistent with President Muhammadu Buhari’s avowed war on corruption.

Obasanjo said this at the 2017 Foundation Day Public Lecture titled: “Corruption and the Challenges of the African Child”.


The lecture was organised to mark the 14th anniversary of Dorcas Oke Hope Alive Initiative (DOHAI), in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.

He also warned Buhari that there must not be any “sacred cows” in the fight against corruption.

“Corruption must be punished, and must be seen to be punished.

“Any accomplice in corruption and cover-up and any failure to punish must also earn punishment.


“We cannot afford to have sacred cows in the fight against corruption. The Maina saga should never have been allowed to occur.

“It is not in tandem with the fight against corruption,” Obasanjo said.

On Monday, President Buhari ordered for Maina’s sack and demanded a full report on the circumstances surrounding his reinstatement.

The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, has already submitted the report on the matter.

Maina has been on the run over a pension fraud running into N100billion.

He was dismissed from the civil service in 2013 for absconding, but secretly reabsorbed and promoted in September.

Nigeria's problem appears to be beyond redemption.

It is also not untrue that Nigeria/ and or Aso Rock has been under demonic siege since inception. Apologies to Dr Reuben Abati.

Because see the case of:

Obasanjo, a man almost straight from the prison appointed/elected president. He messed up.

Jonathan, an unknown man from minority who "had no shoes' wrecked the economy.

What about Buahri, the supossed upright man who is above board cannot take simple decision of punishing the nation's economy saboteurs.

Indeed, there is (was) a country!

When it comes to Buhari, he talks sweet and scared to his pant. Is it today that Buhari has been misbehaving? Maina is not the last to be heard of this decietful govt of every week with new scandal. Why is nobody talking about hon Abdul Miminu that’s been suspended from the house of reps for over a year all because he exposed budget padding? In China they have made over 11,000 prosecution involving the ruling party’s members alone and that’s a drop from last year... A serious govt is not one that shield their supporters and prosecute ordinary citizens

Him no get any moral right to talk about fighting corruption, this old junk stinks of corruption. Cos GEJ and Buhari free him that's why you don't know Jack about him? Go and do your research, he is the grand patron of corruption.


Something big is about to happen in Nigeria, yeah something big and I can smell it coming, there will be no hiding place for corrupt people like OBJ.
