The Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita says President Muhammadu Buhari is aware of the reinstatement of a former Chairman of the Pension Reforms Commission, Mallam Abdulrasheed Maina into the civil service.
Mrs. Oyo-Ita, who said she warned the President against it, explained that her warning was based on the implications such reinstatement would have on the anti-corruption war of the Federal Government.
She stated this in her memo to the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari.
The Head of Service of the Federation said she met the President after the Federal Executive Council meeting of October eleven, where she verbally warned him against bringing Maina back to the service.
Mrs. Oyo-Ita said the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation was never in agreement with the reinstatement and never conveyed the approval of the FCPC to Mr. Maina, nor approved his posting to the Ministry of Interior or any other Ministry, Department or Agency.
