*As Tambuwal tasks IGP to produce Maina now
ABUJA- MEMBERS of the House of Representatives Tuesday supported the earlier call by the Senate to sack Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Force Team, Mr Abdulrasheed Maina.

Also, the Speaker of the House, Hon Aminu Tambuwal has asked the Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Abubakar to produce Maina to answer questions on how over N200billion pension fund was allegedly mismanaged.

The resolution to concur with the Senate over Maina’s sack arose from a motion brought to the floor of the House by the Chairman, House Committee on Rules and Business, Hon Albert Sam-Tsokwa representing Taraba State tagged: “House Concurrence to Senate Resolution on Dismissal of Mr Abdulrasheed Maina for Refusal to Appear before the Senate.”

Tsokwa who led the debate said that: “the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on Wednesday 13th February 2013 passed Resolution (S/Res/033/02/13) requesting, that Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina be dismissed from the Public Service of the Federal Republic of Nigeria immediately and be disengaged from all acts relating to public duty;

” The Inspector General of Police should appear before the Committee on Police Affairs to give reasons why he did not act on the Warrant issued by the President of the Senate.”

After deliberations on the matter, the Speaker put the motion to a voice vote and it was unanimously adopted.

The Speaker however, charged the IGP to immediately liaise with Interpol and get Maina arrested.

He said, “we won’t be fighting corruption in isolation of some people through selective processes. Whatever Maina represent we cannot pretend to be fighting corruption yet we are condoling corruption.

“Every available fact here is against him, those of us in high places must not be seen to be condoling corruption or we will be seen to be paying lip service to the fight against corruption. Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina should be investigated and prosecuted. “
