Give me a chance to prove my innocence – Ex-pension boss tells Buhari [VIDEO]

Maina also said that he is ready to provide evidence that will clear him of all the false allegations levelled against him.

Maina, who spoke to Channels TV, said that the President is being deceived by the people around him.

The former pension reforms boss also said that he is ready to provide documentary evidence that will clear him of all the false allegations levelled against him.

He said “Thank God our President stands for the truth, the unfortunate thing is that some people around him whom he has given trust are lying to him; this one I can attest to and I can give you instances, I can give you documentary evidences.

“I’m appealing to you Mr President, there are so many things people are not telling you; when I get to that public hearing I will tell you some things that nobody ever told you Mr President because I never had the opportunity to sit down with you.”

“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 N3trillion now in Nigeri, give me nine months. Within the first three months, I will show you N1trillion just like I showed you N1trillion in this 2017,” he added.

Maina still receives salary

Despite the dust raised following the re-instatement of Abdulrasheed Maina, a man wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly defrauding the government, reports say he still receives salary.

Maina’s solicitor, Mohammed Katu said this when he appeared before the House of Representatives committee investigating the matter on Thursday, November 23, 2017.

Meanwhile, the -Chairman of the Presidential Pension Reform Team (PPRT) has said that the Federal Government is owing him N159b based on the five percent fee promised whistle-blowers.
