‘I’ll give you documents that can fetch Nigeria over N3trn which were stolen’ — Maina speaks to Buhari from hiding
AbdulRasheed Maina, former chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, says he is ready to reveal top secrets to President Muhammadu Buhari.
In an interview with Channels Television, Maina said many of those around the president were insincere.
He said while attempts have been made on his life, he is not afraid of anyone.
Maina also declared interest in appearing before the house of reps ad hoc committee probing his reinstatement into the civil service.
He appealed to Buhari to give him an opportunity to “prove his innocence”.
“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 evidence,” Maina said.
“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.”
Maina said he recovered a lot of money for the government of President Goodluck Jonathan and even the current administration.
He said given a chance, he would help Buhari get N3 trillion within three months.
“I recovered money for the last administration and I recovered money for this administration,” he said.
“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 Nigeria, give me nine months. Within the first three months, I will show you N1trillion just like I showed you N1trillion in this 2017.”
