THE Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Engineer Abubakar Magaji has owned up to every administrative lapses leading to the “erroneous reinstatement and promotion of Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team.
Magaji who stated this following barrage of evidence-based questions directed at him by members of the House of Representatives Adhoc Committee investigating the circumstances surrounding the disappearance, reappearance, reinstatement and promotion of Mr. Maina made the U-turn having first indicted the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita as being responsible for the letter directing Maina’s reinstatement.
However, Oyo-Ita in her defence before the panel marvelled at the submission by the Perm Sec whom she described as “a senior permanent secretary in the civil service”, saying that engineer Magaji was being economical with the truth as her office never sent a letter directing him to reinstate Maina. – Independent
