The Labour Party, LP, has said that the Federal Government should tell Nigerians the whereabouts of former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.
The party said since Maina was recalled and reinstated by the Government, they must know where he was at the moment.
LP called on the government to arrest and prosecute him on allegations of corruption levelled against him without further delay.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja, National Chairman of the Party, Dr Mike Omotoso, said “You will recall that Maina was sacked by the last administration and placed on Wanted List.
We are calling on the federal government to arrest and prosecute Maina if they know where he is.
Since they were the ones that brought him back and reinstated him, they should also bring him out now, arrest and prosecute him.”
At a news conference in Abuja, National Chairman of the Party, Dr Mike Omotoso assisted by the party spokeswoman, Barr. Ebere Ifendu and other officials, also declared that there was no crisis of leadership in the party.
They accused the former national chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam of continued impersonation, saying he had since been suspended following serious allegations levelled against him by the party’s governorship candidate in Anambra.
“We want to correct some misconceptions about our party. There is no leadership tussle in our party. Our National Chairman is Dr Mike Omotoso”, said Ifendu.
She said the party had filed a formal complaint with the police who are currently investigating the disappearance of party property including a vehicle.
The party also berated some state governments for their inability or refusal to pay workers’ salary, describing the trend as anti-people and a modern form of slavery.
It, however, urged the federal government to launch an investigation into how the states governments utilized the budget support fund as well as the Paris Club Refund given to them by the federal government, aside from their federal allocation and internally generated revenue.
