Ahmed Idris, accountant general of the federation, says Abdulrasheeed Maina, former chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms (PTFP), is not receiving salary as claimed by his counsel.
“So, I don’t know from where Maina was getting salary and I did a test run on the system with different combinations of the name to see if there was anywhere I could see anybody bearing that name receiving salary and there was none. Payment of salary is not just made in the air.
“We are not making any payment to him. The only conclusion we can draw is that he is not receiving salary from the federal government as far as our records are aware.”
