The Senate has set up an ad hoc committee to investigate how the former Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on Pension, Abdulrasheed Maina, who had been implicated in a N2 Billion fraud case was able to get re-absorbed back into service.

The committee on Public Service and Establishment was tasked with investigating how Maina got into the country after he left the shores of the country and was taken back into service after being on the EFCC wanted list for about two years.

The Senate through the committee is also set to investigate how Maina was reinstated into Public Service and how he got promoted to the level of Director in the civil service.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Monday ordered for the immediate disengagement of Maina from the Federal Civil Service as well as calling for a report on how he got re-absorbed back into service.
