Maina Slumps Inside Court: A Systemic Ideology To Elude Justice. On Thursday 10th of December, 2020, the former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina collapsed during his prosecution at a Federal High Court, Abuja.
He will record as the second Nigeria to slump inside the court during his prosecutions.
On Monday the 20th of July, 2020 the NDDC acting managing director, Prof. Kemebrakumo Pondei slumped while being interrogated by the lawmakers.
Ponder’s interrogations were following his accusations over misappropriation and embezzlement of public funds which is tantamount to what Maina is also facing at present.
Pretence before courts is now a norm among the Nigerian elites to elude justice.
The Nigerian youth have seen what happened and many had attributed it to a systemic Ideology to evade justice. According to the youths who related the scenario to the mythical stories of a clever dog that we were told by our fathers, the dog had eaten a delicious soup cooked by the tortoise who is also a notorious crook.
The tortoise anger led him to take the dog to the court over the stolen soup, at the court, the judge summons the dog to come out and defend the allegation, but it was so disappointing that instead of the dog to talk, he vomited and that symbolizes that the dog had been sick for days.
This made the judge dismiss the case against the dog because the judge believes he can never steal the soup since he was sick, unbeknownst to the judge that the dog pretended just to evade justice.
This mythical story is what our leaders are now bringing to realities as suggested by the Nigerian youths.
Recall that Abdurasheed Maina had always wanted to evade justice, he was only extradited to Nigeria, by the Interpol with the connection of Nigeria police intelligence department.
Thus all this his actions is an attempt to elude justice like his predecessor (Poidei), and the Nigerian government should take the case seriously so that all the money in his possession should be reverted into the pension fund account where they were stolen.
Below are reactions from the Nigerian youths:
