Declaring Me Wanted Is An Abuse Of Power In A Democracy – Maina

Abdulrasheed-Maina1pEmbattled Chairman of Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina, has lampooned the Police over the purported “declaration” of his arrest saying it amounted to an abuse of power.
In a statement personally signed by him yesterday, Maina expressed surprise at the purported declaration by the police.
“The said declaration by the Nigeria Police is definitely an abuse of power in a democracy”, he said, adding that there was no time he was invited either verbally or in writing by the Nigeria Police for any reason whatsoever.
“It is after such invitation has been dishonored that an order for his arrest can be employed, followed by declaring me wanted”, he said. Maina expressed his suspicions over the conduct of the police adding, “I am not a criminal to be declared wanted just like that”, he said.


  1. We are in an era where right is called wrong and vice versa. The question i keep asking myself is ‘do these people have conscience at all?’. Cos i always wonder what they use to have in mind each time they rub peter to pay paul and with impunity, they face cameras and speak as if they are addresing fools. May God deliver us in this country.
