President Muhammadu Buhari has on Monday October 23, ordered the immediate dismissal of Maina from the Federal Civil Service and also called for a full report of the circumstances of Maina’s recall and posting to the Ministry of Interior.
This has generated series of reactions including that of the Former Minister of Education who said President Buhari should react and “own these Scandals and acts” as Maina’s reinstatement is “one scandal too many.”
She said the president needs to fix something that is fundamentally fundamentally broken the in current administration as the reinstatement of maina despite his being wanted by EFCC is a symptom.
#MainaGate is the most LETHAL BLOW yet to a struggling anti-corruption agenda that had the @officialEFCC increasingly isolated by the AGF.
Something is FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN in Governance & #MainaGate is a mere SYMPTOM. Pres @MBuhari ‘s usual ALOOFNESS on such matters WON’T WORK.
#MainaGate is one SCANDAL TOO MANY for Pres @MBuhari ‘s administration. The time has come for the President to OWN these SCANDALS & ACT.
