N2.1bn pension fraud: Security agencies remove Maina from watch list
There are strong indications that the Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, who was embroiled in an alleged fraud case, might have been granted reprieve by the Federal Government.
Maina, it was learnt, had been visiting the country more regularly than before from his foreign base as his name was said to have been taken off the watch list by security agencies at the nation’s international airports.
Security sources stated that the former PRTT chairman was being protected from arrest by top officials in the Presidency and the Ministry of Justice.
It was gathered that Maina, who was earlier declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in 2015 and subsequently placed on the International Police wanted list, was always in the country hobnobbing with senior officials.
One of the sources told our correspondent that the Federal Government was no longer interested in taking Maina into custody, describing him as ‘a friend of this administration’.
“The EFCC is free to chase after him, but the government seems to have taken a decision on the matter because Maina is no longer on our watch list. From the body language of top officials, Maina appears to be a friend of this administration,” he stated. #EFCC#pension#fraud#administration#maina#Nigeria#government
Do you guys see how he tried to kill him but caught himself?

If this is true, then it may mean the Chinese government has influence over their levels of security. Knowing the lack of privacy within China, (one example is the debtor app) they may have intentionally left a backdoor open for monitoring. I'm definitely keeping an eye on this story.
Suggestion // citizen-leader
A society who citizenship involves a take-it-in-turn leadership supported by a democratic government.
A tombola technology is used to select the citizen- leader from all citizens. ( the only restriction is an age limit - older than 16 years old )
Each citizen has a political duty if called to become the citizen-leader. .
A preparation time is designated for the next in line citizen-leader to reflect, research and construct a campaign which includes 4-5 points to be dealt with by themselves and the full support of a general elected government. .
There is a basic ( minimal) neutral state support for citizen- leaders during each preparation period, including optional pre & post counciling. The identity of the next in line citizen-leader is undisclosed until the beginning of their official post.
As this system becomes familiar, education and daily life will adapt, citizens will be empowered politically aware/ engaged people ready to perform if called upon. .
There is open online ressources for all citizens to follow all political propositions by citizen-leaders and also feedback and important issues proposed by elected politicians.
The aim is that both citizen-leader & government learn from each other through sharing and discussing. .
The citizen- leader is paid by social funds for their work. .
On an internal vote by the government, one of the points of the citizen-leader is taken up and put into action in a realistic relation to a general 'flow' of previous decisions and implications in this area.
The UK government will introduce a world-leading new tax on the production and import of plastic packaging with less than 30% recycled content, in April 2022.
Evidence has highlighted that recycled plastic is often more expensive than using new plastic, despite its lower environmental impacts.
The UK government wants to shift the economic incentives involved in the production of more sustainable plastic packaging, encouraging greater use of recycled plastic and helping to reduce plastic waste.
The key point of the project is the creation of an astonishing public space: in the same way the glorious buildings of the past used to shape the city to allow a theatrical display of themselves, the future quarter of China Merchants Bank will be generated around a square that literally carves the building blocks and sets unity within all the elements of the plot.
