Maina’s younger brother, Aliyu, who had stated that the noble efforts of the ex-pension boss made him enviable to the Muhammadu Buhari administration “to convince him to come back and assist in its ‘CHANGE’ agenda”, also accused the so-called cabal in government of blackmailing their son, revealing that he (Maina) would soon expose the cabal.
While speaking exclusively to New Telegraph, Muhammed disclosed that the current administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari was taking Nigerians for a ride, just as he challenged the police and the DSS to deny that they have not been protecting Maina.
He said on telephone that the Buhari administration was full of shady characters, urging Nigerians to look at the Maina case, Babachir Lawal and Ayo Oke issues and judge for themselves whether this government is corrupt or not.
His words: “Last week, Maina came to Kano to campaign, he has been campaigning; it is an open secret that he wants to be the next Governor of Borno State. He was in Kano to meet people from Borno in Kano State and he met with them.
"So are we being told that the president is not aware of what has been happening? No. The question to ask is what did Buhari know and when did he know it, and any attempt to sweep this under the carpet must be resisted by Nigerians. Like I said, enough is enough.
“We must not also look at the issue of Maina in isolation. The issue of Babachir Lawal, which is still in limbo, months after forcing the Presidency to suspend him and the DG NIA and nothing is happening; Nigeria must begin to ask questions about what is happening.
“The unfortunate developments taking place in the country are not new; they have been with this government, this administration from the beginning.
“Unfortunately, the media, instead of taking the issue as a matter of principle and report what is actually at stake, decides to play games and turn the fundamental issues into a tribal game.
“When some of us raised the issues from the beginning of this administration in 2015 that some criminally minded people with questionable records where brought into this government; people who have nothing to offer the government or the APC party except their dirty lifestyle and corrupt deeds were brought in and given top appointments in this administration.
“Some of us said no, we shouted foul, the media choose to ignore us and chose to glorify the regime; now we are seeing the outcome.
“It is clear that the minister of internal affairs, the DSS as an organization, were openly complicit in the Maina affair; and they are still complicit because nobody in government, those in Abuja can’t tell me they have not been seeing Maina around.
“He has been around with police and DSS protection. The houses that were supposed to be taken over by the EFCC were being protected by the police and the DSS personnel.
“So who is fooling who? Nigerians are being taken for a ride; and it is time they tell this government enough is enough.”
