The former chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Taskforce Team, PRTT, Abdulrasheed Maina has denied the report, which claimed that he was in court with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over its composition.
Maina said the publication quoting him as asking the court to disband the anti-graft agency was false.
In a statement signed by his spokesman, Mohammad Sabo, Maina maintained that he was not the person in court challenging the composition of the EFCC nor calling for its disbandment.
According to the embattled former pension boss, the existence of the EFCC was to rid Nigeria of corruption, stressing that himself, as an anti-corruption crusader who has recovered over N2.9tr for the Federal Government, would rather continue to work for a strengthened, credible and result oriented EFCC devoid of Corrupt tendencies, political persecution and whitch-hunt.
Maina insisted that, he did not brief any lawyer to institute a legal suit against the existence of the EFCC, stressing that “Only those whose hands are stained with palm oil are scared of the establishment of a credible EFCC, and I am not one of them
“This is mix-up because I am aware that Honestly Ngozika Ihuoma of the Legislative watch had sued the Government and EFCC over the Constitutionality of the existence of the present EFCC and not me.”
He added that, if assured of a tightened security protection by the government, he was ready and willing to any credible panel of enquiry to spill the beans.
He urged the general public to disregard the report, describing it as a mix-up, which in his word is definitely not aimed at blindfolding the people from seeing the truth.
