Chairman of the Presidential advisory committee Against Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay has revealed why President Muhammadu Buhari would not meet with ex-pensions reform boss, Abdulrasheed Maina.
Sagay said that Maina’s request was ‘Ridiculous’. He told Vanguard that Maina’s request was insulting to the country and advised him to submit himself to security agencies.
“The whole matter does not justify such ridiculous request.His request to meet with the President is out of the question. If every suspect has a whistle to blow and is therefore taken to the President, I don’t think the President will have any other job to do.
Apart from the protocol and status, it is even insulting to the country. He can talk to the EFCC, ICPC and Police and if he wants a higher authority, he can meet with the Inspector-General of Police. So, he does not need to get to that level at all because nobody is going to allow that.
The police are going to protect him; he should go to the police or the EFCC. They are the best protectors, they have armed officers, and they can keep him in a safe room or safe house.I don’t think that is going to be a problem.”
