A former member of the House of Reps, Ihuoma Ngozika, has called on the federal government to closely monitor the activities ofthe Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) as huge sums may be lost daily.
Ngozika, who is the Executive Secretary of Legislative Watch, a Non-Governmental Organisation, (NGO), made the remark in an interview with newsmen in Abuja.
“As at today, there is a pension department within the PTAD office where on every working day, huge amounts are pilfered,” he noted.
He said the establishment of PTAD has not solved the problem of corruption in the pension sector.
The former legislator lamented that in-between the forced exit of the Pension Reform Taskforce Team, (PRTT), headed by Mr. Adulrasheed Maina as the chairman and entry of PTAD, there were fraud.
Ngozika said his organisation would pursue justice for the PRTT following recent development on the issues that led to its disbandment.
“With the outbreak of the truth about whereabouts of the N195 billion as expressed by Senator Kabiru Gaya in an interview, the Senate should reverse itself on the pronouncement made on Abdulrasheed Maina and order his re-instatement to the civil service,” he said.
He disclosed “we are going to be writing the Senator Emmanuel Paulker, who is the Chairman of the Establishment and Pension committee of the Senate to initiate justice within the Senate.”
