Head of Service, Mrs Oyo-Ita Washes Hands Off Maina’s Recall

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, said in a statement on Monday that her office did not play any role in the recall of wanted Abdulrasheed Maina.
She countered the Minister of Interior, Abdulrasheed Dambazau, who on Sunday blamed her and the Federal Civil Service Commission for the reinstatement of the former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, to the Ministry of Interior.
Dambazau had in a statement by his Press Secretary, Ehisienmen Osaigbovo, denied responsibility for Maina’s recall to service.
The statement said that Maina “was posted few days ago to the Ministry of Interior by the Office of the Head of Service on an Acting capacity to fill a vacancy created following the retirement of the Director heading the Human Resources Department in the Ministry.”
The Minister blamed Maina’s recall on the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation and the Federal Civil Service Commission.
He said the two bodies are responsible for “issues relating to Discipline, Employment, Re-engagement, Posting, Promotion and Retirements of Federal Civil Servants.”
“It is understood that Maina’s last posting was with the Ministry of Interior, and that is probably why he was re-posted back to the Ministry,” the statement added.
But Mrs. Oyo-Ita said through the statement by her Assistant Director, Media Relations, Mohammed Manga, on Monday said: “The attention of the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation has been drawn to several media reports that the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation has approved the reinstatement into the Federal Civil Service of Alhaji Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina and his subsequent posting to the Ministry of Interior.
“The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation wishes to inform the public that the reinstatement and posting of Alhaji Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina never emanated from the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation.
“Consequently, the purported reinstatement and posting by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation is totally erroneous and misleading.”
