Reps Panel Summons Okonjo-Iweala, Maina, Malami Over Stolen Pension Funds
The immediate past Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has been summoned by a House of Representatives panel over the alleged fraud involving mismanagement of pension funds in the country.
The lawmakers, during its sitting on Tuesday, summoned the former minister to appear before and explain the diversion of pension funds by the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms (PTFPR).
The committee believed in its wisdom that not only the fugitive Abdulrasheed Maina should be held accountable but all those who participated in the then PTFPR.
A former Head of Civil Service, Steve Oronsaye, the current Head of Civil Service, Winifred Oyo-Ita; the former chairman of PTFPR; Abdulrasheed Maina, and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, were also invited by the house ad-hoc committee investigating the task force.
The committee also invited heads of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC); governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiole; former Accountant-General of the Federation, Jonah Otunla and the Inspector-General of Police.
They are all to appear next week Monday to explain their involvement in the alleged misappropriation of the pension funds.
About N2 billion Naira was alleged to have been squandered by the PTFPR team.
