The Presidency on Wednesday said there was no truth in the claim by Maina’s family that the present administration invited the former pension boss back to the country to join “the change agenda.”
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in a statement made available to journalists.
Shehu urged Nigerians to ignore the family who made the allegation he described as ridiculous.
“The claim that the Buhari administration invited the wanted Abdulrasheed Maina back into the country is a freshly minted falsehood. Nobody should believe that.
“The family that made that claim simply wanted to be ridiculous. Please ignore them,” the presidential spokesman said.
