    Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, believes Maina’s reinstatement into the Federal Civil Service has left Nigerians to question how the Federal

    Government intends to achieve the objectives of its anti-corruption war.

    “What is clear in the whole of these is the very fact that things have not actually changed very much in the very sense that if a man who has an issue to settle with morality, with sanity could at these very times be re-invited or recalled, then moral issues certainly were raised and is also a revelation of the discord and the disjointed state of government as it is now,” he said during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

    The development, according to him, also reveals “the very fact that some persons are behind the scene wielding very strong powers to which their wielding of power is directly in contradiction with what the President stands for, believes in, and advertises as the moral principles of his government.”

    Maina was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for his alleged involvement in the mismanagement of about N2 billion pension fund. He had reportedly disappeared from public glare only to resurface in October 2017 and take charge as an acting director in the Ministry of Interior.

    Amid various resistance to the development from Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered Maina’s immediate dismissal and demanded a full report of the circumstances of his recall.
