Our Son Is Not A Fraudster – Maina’s Family
The family of the former Chairman of the Presidential Task Team on Pension Reform, Abdulrasheed Maina has said that its son is not a fraudster as being proclaimed in the public space.
The spokesman for the family, Alhaji Aliyu Maina, stated at a news conference on Wednesday that Maina was brought back to Nigeria by the All Progressives Congress to help in the campaign for change.
He said that a cabal was responsible for the bad news flying around to dent the image of Maina and that he would soon release a statement and the identities of such people who were bent to ruin the image of his son.
The family spokesman said, “You must have noticed the recent attempt by some cabal to ridicule and tarnish the image of the Maina family in the social, electronic and print media, where our brother/father/uncle has been blackmailed as a fraudster.
Contrary to the news that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had marked some properties belonging to Maina in Kaduna, the family said it was a falsehood, adding that the houses were marked by the agents of cabals.
The family spokesman described Maina as the messiah that stopped pensioners from roaming the streets of Abuja and that he should be commended instead.
President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the disengagement of Maina from service after he had been reinstated.
