Embattled Chairman of the Pension Reforms Task Team, PRTT, Alhaji Abdulrasheed Maina, who has been on the run for about two weeks may resurface Tuesday, as his N1.5 billion suit against arrest by the Inspector General of Police on the orders of the Senate, opens tomorrow at the Federal High Court Abuja.
But even if the judgement favours him, Maina would not be returning to the PRTT, as the Federal Government has dissolved the controversial agency and returned pension management to the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation, where Maina, was operating from for about two years.
The government has also returned the entire PRTT staff to their various Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, with immediate effect.
The dissolution of the task team was confirmed by the Head of Service of the Federation, Alhaji Bello Isah Sali in Abuja to Vanguard Monday.
The HoS service, who spoke through the Director of Press and Public Relations, Mr. Tope Ajakaiye, explained that the preparations and payment of pensions had been taken over by the OHCSF since last November.
