The National Pension Commission has said it is ready to open its books for scrutiny because it has nothing to hide.
In a statement from PenCom, the Director-General, Mrs Aisha Dahir-Umar, said it was aware of a coordinated plan to bring the commission into disrepute with frivolous petitions to the anti-graft agencies in collaboration with disgruntled insiders.
She stated, “These elements, some of whom are yet to come to terms with the fact that PenCom is no longer at their beck and call, have been sponsoring negative media reports and getting faceless groups to write frivolous petitions to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
“Although some low-level media outfits are giving a voice to these defamatory petitions, those who know how we conduct our affairs at PenCom are not in any way bothered.
“Since I took over as the DG, we have undertaken far-reaching reforms within the organisation which are yielding positive results.”
Describing the era of ‘anything goes’ as long dead and buried, she said, “Those who think they can use the commission to make money or that they should be the ones Jn,,the shots are bitterly disappointed and are sponsoring false publications and trumped-up petitions.
