The House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee probing the activities of the Presidential task force on Pension reform, has threatened to issue a warrant of arrest on Abdulrasheed Maina, others, should they fail to honour their invitation.

The committee had summoned Maina, who was chairman of the task force; former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, among others for explanations on the alleged diversion of pension funds.

The committee had also sat on Monday this week without most principal stakeholders in the matter.

Sitting again on Wednesday, the committee took further testimonies from former Head of Service, Stephen Oronsaye and Nigerian Union of Pensioners.

Chairman of the committee, Hon. Anayo Nnebe, said it was in the best interest of all the stakeholders to attend the public hearing adjourned to next Tuesday to clear the air on some allegations levelled against them.

He, however, said the committee might be left with no other choice than to invoke the warrant of arrest on them, especially Maina.
