Mrs.-Winifred-Ekanem-Oyo-Ita

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, has denied claims that she endorsed the reinstatement of a former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.

She also denied Maina’s subsequent posting to the Ministry of Interior.

Mrs. Oyo-Ita made the denial in a statement by her Assistant Director, Media Relations, Mohammed Manga.

The brief statement reads, “The attention of the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation has been drawn to several media reports that the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation has approved the reinstatement into the Federal Civil Service of Alhaji Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina and his subsequent posting to the Ministry of Interior.

“The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF) wishes to inform the public that the reinstatement and posting of Alhaji Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina never emanated from the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation.

“Consequently, the purported reinstatement and posting by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation is totally erroneous and misleading.”

The Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.) had earlier said Maina, who was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was posted to his ministry by the Head of Service a few days ago.

The minister, in a statement signed by his press secretary, Ehisienmen Osaigbovo, in Abuja on Sunday, said Maina was deployed to the interior ministry in an acting capacity to fill a vacancy following the retirement of the director in charge of the human resources department.
