A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Timi Frank, has threatened to drag the Senate to court if it fails to release the report of investigation carried out on the former chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Alhaji Abdulrasheed Maina.
Frank, in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday, gave the Senate up to seven days to release the report.
Maina is being investigated by an ad hoc committee on how he (Maina) got into the country after he left Nigeria following a report that he was on EFCC wanted list for about two years.
He said, “Since it is an era of fighting corruption, all hands must be on deck. The Senate must reveal to the general public what its committee discovered during the investigation of former Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on Pension, Abdulrasheed Maina. Senate urges FG to invest more in preventing corruption than fighting it.
“I have, however, prepared my lawyers to sue the Nigerian Senate if its ad hoc committee fail to make public the outcome of its investigation in the next seven days. This is necessary for the nation Nigeria to know who are her real enemies and those who have served her diligently,” Timi Frank said.
The activist also condemned the
sealing of residential houses located in Ikoyi, Lagos, owned by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, by the EFCC.
He added that the APC administration had mismanaged the much talked about fight against corruption by witch-hunting of the perceived political enemies.
He noted, “Nigerians at all level must speak up against injustices in the land. We must help the clueless government of APC in the fight against corruption. Political persecution should not be seen as right against corruption.”
