Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd), was conspicuously absent from the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Buhari, at the state house in Abuja today, October 26th.
The meeting started some minutes after 11:00a.m.
Dambazau has been linked to the recall and posting of the wanted former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.
The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, and the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, who have also been linked to the recall of the controversial pensions boss were however present.
Maina, who had been on the run for alleged N2 billion scam, got back into service without the knowledge of President Muhammadu Buhari. Following the public outcry, President Buhari on Monday, ordered his immediate disengagement from the civil service and immediate investigation of how he was recalled.
