According to a report by The Nation, Maina wrote to Saraki as well as the Senate Joint Committee on Establishment and Public Service and States and Local Government Administration a review of his case and a probe of the various actions taken against him by some people he claimed were bent on intimidating him.
Ex-pension boss writes Saraki, Senate
Maina claims that pension funds amounting to more than N3 trillion were trapped in 97 pension offices before he fled the country.
The former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team's letter, which was dated June 19, 2015, had Maina claiming that pension funds amounting to more than N3 trillion were trapped in 97 pension offices before he fled the country.
“We used financial intelligence skills to achieve ground-breaking achievements in our assignment. We recovered and saved cash and properties worth over N1.6trillion,” he said.
In the letter, which he reportedly wrote shortly after he returned to the country from self-exile, Maina had accused the 7th Senate of aiding and abetting pension thieves across the country.
The letter addressed to Senator Saraki was titled ‘Pension Reform Task Team: Appeal for Review of Investigation Probe by Senate Joint Committee on Establishment and Public Service and States and Local Government Administration 2011-2013.’
Following a public uproar against his alleged reinstatement as a director in the Ministry of Interior while he was still wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged embezzlement of N2 billion pension funds, Maina claimed in the letter that his task team, which began operation in January 2011, saved about N1.6 trillion from pension thieves.
