Maina saga: PDP blasts Garba Shehu over statement as Court, INTERPOL issue fresh arrest warrants on him

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said Garba Shehu, spokesman to President Muhammadu Buhari has lost the capacity for rational thinking.

Garba Shehu in a statement had alleged that government officials loyal to former President Goodluck Jonathan reinstated ex-pension boss, Abdulrasheed Maina.

Dayo Adeyeye, the opposition party’s spokesman, in a statement on Thursday said Shehu has ran out of ideas.

“We are not surprised on the postulation by Alhaji Garba Shehu in which he blamed the former administration of Goodluck Jonathan as being responsible for the return of fugitive Abdulrasheed Maina. This is to say the least the height of absurdity,” the party said.

“The shenanigans surrounding the return of Maina who was under investigation and sacked by the previous administration of PDP is an issue Nigerians are privy to and even Maina’s immediate family have come out openly with their position that President Buhari was responsible for his return.

“May we, therefore, remind Garba Shehu in case he has forgotten, that the current administration is that of the APC and not PDP, so we wonder how PDP will be responsible for the mess created by President Buhari and his cabal.”

PDP added, “It’s time Garba Shehu and his likes resigned if they have nothing more to contribute in government.

“Finally, we urge the APC led government to re-evaluate the inclusion of the likes of Garba Shehu in the administration.

“A man who is fixated on blaming each and every mistake of this government on the PDP has certainly run out of ideas, and must even have lost the capacity for rational thinking. We wonder the damage he may be causing to this country with his continuous stay as an assistant to the president”.

Meanwhile, the Presidency on Thursday said the international police (INTERPOL) and a Magistrate Court in Abuja have issued fresh arrest warrants on wanted ex-chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this while speaking with journalists.

Shehu said Maina’s investigation has gone beyond his reinstatement and promotion.

He said, “Maina’s investigation has been expanded. This is beyond reinstatement. It has gone beyond that.

“You know that the INTERPOL has just issued an international warrant on him. A Nigerian court has also issued yet another warrant of arrest.

“All those cases involving Steve Oronsaye (former Head of the Civil Service of the Federation) that are ongoing, you know Maina is also involved. Law enforcement agencies are looking at that too.

“You are also aware that the Senate is also carrying out its own investigation on the matter.

“The matter is being investigated from all fronts. The EFCC, for example,  is discovering more and more properties and its officials are sealing them. They are also looking at banks and all that.

“In fact, this investigation will also touch some foreign countries.”
